Sharp Energy Solutions Corporation (SESJ), part of Sharp Corporation has completed a 45 MW direct current (DC) solar power project in Vietnam.
The photovoltaic (PV) facility was built by the company and partners including Vietnam-based conglomerate T&T Group JSC (T&T) and its subsidiary T&T affiliate Ninh Thuan Energy Industry JSC. The solar park is to generate some 76,373 MWh of electricity per year, enough to meet the annual demand of 40,500 average Vietnamese homes in the province of Ninh Thuan. Reportedly, this plant can offset the equivalent of 25,458 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions in a year. Further, Sharp is helping Vietnam to reach its solar capacity goal of 12,000 MW by the year 2030.
