Japan building enormous solar array to power Sharp's plants

In Japan, Sharp, the city of Sakai, and Kansai Electric Power are planning to build two absolutely enormous solar power plants, dubbed the "Sakai City Waterfront Mega Solar Power Generation Plan." The two plants will generate 10,000 kW and 28,000 kW, respectively. That's a lot of juice.

The complex will be one of the largest of its kind in the world, and it'll go a long way towards powering all of Sharp's and other company's factories in Sakai. Sakai is looking to become one of Japan's leading "green" cities, and judging by the huge investment they're making in solar power, they're certainly on the right track. Keep it up, Sakai!
