Kyocera, a supplier of solar power generating systems, has won a contract to supply roughly one million solar modules equivalent to 204MW for a solar power project implemented by Solar Power in Thailand.

The solar power project, which will include the construction of 34 individual 6MW solar farms in northeastern Thailand, will provide electricity for the local area with an annual power output sufficient for roughly 170,000 average Thai households.

The project, which will be supplying power to the Provincial Electricity Authority of Thailand (PEA) for distribution to homes and businesses, complements the Thai government’s plan to install 500MW of solar power by 2022.

Kyocera vice president and general manager Tatsumi Maeda said that Kyocera is honored to be able to contribute to meeting the renewable energy targets of Thailand.

"We have a proven track record of supplying modules for large-scale solar power plants across the globe, including projects in Spain, Germany and the US, and we will deliver a stable supply of high-quality products for the completion of this project," Maeda said.
