Laketricity Japan Co, Ltd (Ciel & Terre International Group) developed a floating solar power plant and began selling electricity to Ondani Ike, Konan Town, Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture on December 21, 2023.

Despite soaring prices for panels and other materials, as well as an unstable yen, Laketricity was able to successfully complete construction thanks to the cooperation of the local players involved.

Technical details of the Ondani Ike floating solar power plant

The plant has a power generation capacity of 2,652.0 kW and an interconnection capacity of 1,999.0 kW.

It is equipped with 665 W panels and is expected to produce 3,196 MWh of electricity in its first year. This is equivalent to the electricity production of around 550 households. In addition, the plant will be operated by “Suiden Mizumi Yon Co., Ltd”, which is managed by the Group.

“Compared with conventional solar power generation, floating solar power generation is an innovative method of energy production. It guarantees renewable energy without harming the environment by preserving arable land and considerably limiting civil engineering works. Thanks to this initiative, Laketricity will continue to contribute to Japan’s future energy supply.”

– Olivier Philippart, Deputy Managing Director in charge of Operations
