Abandoned golf courses are converted to solar power plants in Japan
In Japan, there are lots of abandoned golf courses. Now, as a new approach these vast areas are being converted to solar power plants.
After the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster in 2011, Japan has been looking for safer and renewable energy alternatives. Solar power plants are good candidates for the solution.
The first 23 megawatt project will be completed in 2017, and will fulfill the energy need of about 8,000 houses. The project owner is the Kyocera Group.
Kyocera also have another 92 megawatt similar solar power plant project which will supply energy for about 30,000 houses.
We hope that every person on earth understands the critical importance of safe and renewable energy production.
