Japan has floating solar power plants in Hyogo Prefecture

Kyocera is in the news this month. Two floating solar power plants in two reservoirs in Kato City, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, are complete. This is a joint venture. The two players are Kyocera and Century Tokyo Leasing, which is in the business of equipment leasing. Construction started last year in September. They use 255-watt Kyocera modules, 11,256 modules in total.

The story is too old to be commented.

At least Japan deploying it and openly persuing clean renewable energy sources. I wonder when the folks behind US legislation will finally pull their collective heads out of the sand. They should be wholly embracing it, not sidestepping the issue or even making it less appealing for the average consumer or business.

Here in SoCal we had quite the tax incentive to upgrade, but even so few people could afford the upfront cost.

And with the Nuclear Madhatters throwing millions into pro-nuclear campaigns, we'll probably just end up with a problem for future generations instead of fixing the issue with renewable sources.
