GCLSI Supplies 64MW Solar Modules to Two Large PV Plants in Japan
SUZHOU, China, Nov. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

GCL System Integration ("GCLSI" or "the Company"), a world-leading, one-stop 
and integrated energy system provider, has announced its cooperation with a 
leading Japanese solar energy project construction company to build two 
utility-scale solar power stations in Japan. Both solar power stations are 
currently under construction and they are expected to connect to the grid at 
the beginning of 2022. The two projects won the support of MUFG Bank, Mizuho 
Bank, SMBC Group and other local banks.

The first project is a 37 MW solar power plant located in Kochi, which covers 
around 280,000 hectares and is designed to provide 45000 MWh annually. Once 
it's been completed, the station will become the second largest solar plant in 
Japan powered by the innovative GCLSI cast-mono module. 

The second project is a 27 MW power plant in the Kanto region, which covers 
approximately 240,000 hectares. Outlining the details of the project, Riki Li, 
Country Manager for GCL in Japan, explained: "Getting planning permission was 
the biggest challenge we've faced in this project". After three years of 
development, the project was put in motion. The power plant is expected to 
generate 29000 MWh of power annually.

Japan has put great efforts into the solar energy development and has shifted 
its policies towards renewable energy after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power 
plant tragedy in 2011. According to a report from the Institute for Sustainable 
Energy Policies (ISEP), the installed PV capacity had increased by 5.7 GW and 
reached nearly 54 GW at the end of 2019. This year the market is expected to 
add over 7 GW of new capacity in the region.

GCL started its silicon business in Japan in 2010 and enlarged its business 
scope to solar project development in 2014 and module sales in 2017. GCL Japan 
currently owns 58 MW of solar projects in the region. As a fully integrated 
clean energy system provider with robust in-house production capable of 
manufacturing high-quality PV products with high performance/price ratio, GCL 
is dedicated to providing the best value-per-watt products to our customers. 
The GCL Japan team is always seeking opportunities to develop solar projects 
with our partners and contribute to Japan's carbon-neutral target by 2050.
