Solar panel supplier REC, cut the ribbon on a new 1.7 MW solar power plant in Yonago, Tottori, Japan in a ceremony on March 27, 2013.

Built by REC partner Advantec, the plant comprises 7,056 REC Peak Energy Series solar panels and is expected to generate over 1,840 MWh of renewable electricity every year — enough to cover the power about 510 households.

Advantec and Japanese radio & TV station BSS (Broadcasting System of San-in) equally share the ownership of the plant, with Advantec already active in the solar electricity business, having been a partner of REC in Japan since 2011.
