Japanese real estate investor Ichigo Inc has rescheduled for February 2021 the launch of its first wind plant — a 7.39-MW park in Yamagata prefecture.
The delay is due to the fact that Ichigo’s wholly-owned subsidiary Ichigo ECO Energy is adding a two-month test operation period for the facility. The wind farm was originally scheduled to commence operations in December 2020. The park will consist of four turbines to be erected in the mountains between Fukushima and Yamagata prefectures, the company previously stated. Once operational, Ichigo Yonezawa should generate enough power to meet the annual power demand of 2,500 local homes.
