Japan completes installation of two huge floating solar power plants.

The two installations feature a total of 11,256 Kyocera modules, and are reportedly capable of powering 920 homes in Kato City. According to Kyocera and Century Tokyo Leasing, the floating solar modules provide much more than solar energy. They help reduce evaporation and algae growth in the two ponds they sit on, and in return the water provide cooling effect that results in more electricity generated compared to standard ground or roof mounts.

Kyocera utilized high-density polyethylene platforms that can withstand ultraviolet rays and are corrosion resistant. In case of extreme weather, the platforms are engineered to withstand the force of a typhoon.
