May 31, 2017
Chubu Electric Power Co.,Inc.
Chubu Electric Power has today completed its self-controlled pre-service inspection of Mega Solar Kawagoe, and started full equipment operations. Work for Mega Solar Kawagoe has been underway within the sites of Kawagoe Thermal Power Station.
With the development of Taketoyo Thermal Power Plant Unit 5, Chubu Electric Power had been planning to relocate Mega Solar Taketoyo's power generator to the grounds of Kawagoe Thermal Power Station, and engage in operations by renaming the station to Mega Solar Kawagoe. After starting work in October 2015, Chubu Electric Power has been relocating the power generator since June 2016 and has started to pre-emptively operate some parts of the generator from January 06, 2017.
Chubu Electric Power will continue contributing to the widespread use of renewable energy.
