Solar Ark


Gifu City

SOLAR ARK is an arc-shaped and cantilever photovoltaic plant built in 2001 by the Sanyo company on the outskirts of the city of Gifu. The 37 m high and 315 m long plant, which consists of over 5,000 solar modules, is one of the largest solar energy plants in the world and reduces 97 t of CO2 per year compared to conventional power plants. SOLAR ARK produces about 530,00 kWh of electrical energy annually. Following Panasonic’s acquisition of Sanyo, the logo attached to SOLAR ARK was changed accordingly in 2011.
