The Kyocera Group and SB Energy Corp. - SoftBank Group's subsidiary in charge of renewable energy business - have been selected by Kyoto City, Japan, to build and operate a 4.2 MW solar power plant.

The utility-scale solar power plant will be located in Kyoto Prefecture and will be the largest solar power installation in the prefecture, according to the companies. Approximately 17,000 Kyocera modules will be installed at two facilities (2.1 MW each) in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto City.

Kyocera Group companies will be in charge of solar module supply, system design and material procurement, and the construction of the projects. SB Energy will serve as the operator of the large-scale solar power plant.

The companies aim to have the system operating in time for the start of Japan's new feed-in tariff, which will go into effect on July 1.
