Sunpower Corp. is supplying its E-Series 435 W solar panels for the Sonnedix 46.6 MW »Tono« project in Iwate prefecture, Japan. Construction on the site is currently underway, with commercial operation expected in early 2020. The facility, which NEC Networks and System Integration Corporation is contracted to construct, is expected to generate over 53,000 megawatt hours annually when completed. The »Tono« project was developed, and will be asset-managed and operated by Sonnedix Japan on behalf of Sonnedix Power Holdings Limited, an Independent Solar Power Producer (IPP) with 211 MW of solar plants in operation or under construction in Japan.
In June 2018, Sonnedix has reached financial close on a ¥13.9 billion ($0.13 billion) non-recourse debt facility with MUFG Bank Ltd for the »Tono« PV plant. The project was acquired from its previous owners in June 2017.
