Kyocera has completed construction of a floating solar power plant
At the CEATEC Fair last October, Kyocera announced the construction of a new mega solar power plant, which, unlike typical solar farms, was to be built on water. The company has just announced that its project has already been completed and will soon start producing electricity.
Solar farms are a very convenient method of producing electricity. However, to make such power plants efficient enough, they have to occupy huge areas of land, and this is usually expensive, which makes the investment cost-effective.
Kyocera last year presented a very interesting idea to build a floating solar power plant in Japan that would not be valuable to land because it would float on water, on interconnected platforms made of polyethylene. The idea was completed and a total of two megayots were built: Nishihira Pond and Higashihira Pond, located near Kato City, Hyogo Prefecture.
