Construction of the Tohoku plant is set to break ground in March 2014, with commercial operations scheduled to start in March 2015. Products manufactured at the Tohoku Plant will primarily be sold in the local region.
“Solar Frontier’s Tohoku Plant will contribute to the economic revitalization of Miyagi Prefecture, creating new job and business opportunities,” said Yoshihiro Murai, Governor of Miyagi Prefecture. “I am confident it will promote green businesses and the development of clean, renewable energy in Miyagi and across the region.”
The Tohoku facility will be Solar Frontier’s fourth manufacturing plant in Japan.
