The business is part of the PPP (public private partnership) business(*1) between Panasonic and Fujisawa City, who have been looking into the concept of the Fujisawa SST since 2007, and will be the first case in Fujisawa City for a company to use public land (public sewage land located in the south of the town) for solar power generation. The generation capacity is approximately 100kW/h.

At Fujisawa City, as a model to reinforce measures against emergencies and to expand usage of renewable energy, electricity is provided during emergencies (blackouts) not only to town residents but also to surrounding areas(*2). Also, all electricity will be sold to the grid to support the maintenance of solar generation equipments.

The Fujisawa SST Management Company is planning to widely expand small scale dispersed-location solar generation as a model, and by connecting solar generation in other areas, is aiming for virtual mega solar generation in the future.
