Sharp Constructs Mega Solar Plant in Jakabaring Sports City, Indonesia

Contributes to Avoided CO2 (GHG) Emissions of 917 Tons per Year

Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation*1 (hereinafter “SESJ”) proudly announces the completion of a mega solar power plant inside Jakabaring Sports City, a sports complex in Palembang, South Sumatra, Republic of Indonesia. A collaboration with local energy solutions company Perusahaan Daerah Pertambangan Dan Energi*2 (hereinafter "PDPDE"), the solar power plant started operations on April 10, 2018 and was officially inaugurated on June 30, 2018. The completion ceremony was attended by South Sumatra Governor Alex Noerdin, officials from Indonesia’s Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, officials from the Embassy of Japan in Indonesia, and other relevant persons.

The power plant was constructed after qualifying for the Joint Credit Mechanism (hereinafter “JCM”) Subsidy Program*3, run by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment (MOE). This 1.6 MW-dc solar power plant generates approximately 1,922 MWh/year, thus allowing avoided greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of approximately 917 t-CO2 annually.

SESJ is committed to proposing energy solutions that meet the specific needs of Asia and other regions and contributing to the further deployment of renewable energy.
