Solar Power Network Japan and Komeri have announced a partnership to develop 12 MW of rooftop solar power across 14 buildings owned by Komeri. SPN will design, build and operate the facilities. The systems will be grid connected with contracts under Japan's Feed-In Tariff system and all the electricity they generate will be sold under this scheme.

The total output of the solar power systems, 12 MW, will be sufficient to power more than 3,600 typical Japanese households. By generating that power with solar, the release of more than 270,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions can be prevented.

Part of the systems is to provide emergency power in case of natural disaster. Facilities in snow prone areas are to be equipped with special snow monitoring. All the systems are to be completed by late 2015.

"SPN is proud of building a partnership with Komeri who has an impressive, long-term green record." said Mr. Peter Goodman, CEO and President of Solar Power Network.

"The SPN's commitment to renewable energy is also to sustain the beauty of our planet earth. SPN is excited to be part of its green initiative in Japan through Komeri's rooftops."

Company Name: Komeri Co., Ltd.

Headquarters: Niigata City, Niigata prefecture

Industry: Home improvement chains

Expected Output: Approx. 12 MW

Expected Annual Energy Production: Approx. 13.2MWh

Operation Start: late 2015
