Sky Solar, a global solar power station investor and operator, announced that its Japanese unit, Sky Solar Japan, achieved grid connection of two photovoltaic power stations located at Otsuka-cho, Tochigi Prefecture, Honshu Island and Kamishihoro-cho, Hokkaido.

These two solar plants were connected on March 15 and March 30 respectively. These two projects total about 2.3 MW with an annual generation capacity estimated to be 2,528,000 kWh.

After half a month of operation and data monitoring, these projects are already showing generation capacity 15 percent higher than expected. Both of these projects are also entitled to a Japanese FiT of $0.43/kWh over 20 years.

These two projects were among a total of 10 MW under construction by Sky Solar Japan, part of Sky Solar's 200MW "20-year, 42 Yen/kWh FiT" fully licensed projects.

In April and May this year, Sky Solar Japan will seek to achieve grid-connection of another 4 PV projects currently under construction, and from May this year Sky Solar will invest and begin the simultaneous construction of another 30 PV power projects in Japan.
