Tsuno SolarWay

Japan had a series of bad luck from numerous Toyota recalls, high unemployment and the horrible tsunami of March 2011. Yet, their hard work prevails with the positive news from the Miyazaki Solar Way Company. A large scale solar project finally comes to completion in Southern Japan. This is the second stage of the Tsuno Solarway which consists of 12,520 solar modules arrayed after the first stage of Tsuno SolarWay stretching out a roughly 3.6-kilometer-long near the Hyuganada Sea. The capacity of the second stage is 1,000 kilowatts (1MW) - enough to supply approximately 300 households. It is specially designed against typhoons, rust and corrosion and its lifespan is estimated about 20 years. Although there is no personnel on the site, they are remotely monitored all the time and also maintained regularly.
