Solar independent power producer Etrion Corporation (TSX:ETX) (OMX:ETX), recently announced the completion of construction and connection to the grid of the remaining two sites of the Aomori solar project, totaling 4.2 megawatts. Hitachi High-Technologies contributed to the build-out of the final sites as well.

Aomori is a 9.5 MW utility-scale solar photovoltaic power project with four sites in the Aomori prefecture of Japan. Each Aomori site has a twenty-year power purchase agreement with the Tohoku Electric Power utility and will receive ¥36 per kilowatt-hour produced (approximately US$0.35 per kWh). The Aomori solar project is expected to produce approximately 10.7 gigawatt-hours of solar electricity.

Marco A. Northland, Etrion’s Chief Executive Officer, commented:

“We continue to make significant progress in Japan, and we are very happy to increase our installed capacity ahead of time and below budget. I congratulate every stakeholder in the Aomori project for performing brilliantly. With Aomori, fully connected, we now have about 43 MW operational, 13 MW under construction and over 250 MW in different stages of development. We will continue to provide updates as we reach new milestones in this very exciting market.”
