Kyocera has signed an agreement with Tohoku Electric Power to supply 3MW of its multicrystalline silicon solar modules.

The modules will be installed in the Sendai and Hachinohe plants, being constructed by Tohoku Electric Power.

The Sendai Solar Power Plant in Shichigahama, Miyagi Prefecture, with a capacity of 2MW will generate 2,100MWh of electricity, which is sufficient to power 600 homes.

The 1.5MW Hachinohe Solar Power Plant being constructed in Hachinohe, Aomori Prefecture, will have 1MW of capacity installed by Kyocera and will generate 1,600MWh of electricity to power 500 homes.

The construction for both plants is expected to commence this month and is slated to be completed by January 2012.
