Equis Energy donated 8 street lights to Kunimi Town, Fukushima Prefecture
On 17th April 2017, Equis Energy held a donation ceremony at Kenpoku Junior High School, the only junior high school in Kunimi Town, Fukushima Prefecture. All 243 students and teachers, Mr. Ota, Kunimi Town Mayor, four city officials and four Equis Energy employees attended the ceremony.
The Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011 caused great damage to Kunimi, and since then, the town has been working to ensure it remains an attractive place for young people to live. In pursuing its goal of “creating a community where the people have an attachment to their hometown, and are proud of to be raised, support and walk together for the town’s reconstruction”, Kunimi has focused on improving the education system, and introducing initiatives to support young people’s growth.
In support of Kunimi’s goals, Equis Energy donated five (5) solar street lights and three (3) LED street lights to improve students’ safety during their daily commute to school.
At the ceremony, Equis Energy presented Kunimi Town Mayor Ota and the students with a list of its donations, after which a student representative delivered thanks in both Japanese and English.
Equis Energy has two solar power projects in Fukushima: the Kunimi solar power plant (13.0MWdc) and the Nihonmatsu solar power plant (29.5MWdc). The Kunimi plant started commercial operations in February 2016, and the Nihonmatsu plant is under construction and is expected to start operating in 2017. Equis Energy expects both projects to generate enough electricity to support 13,000 households in Fukushima, and is committed to the long-term support of the local community through its solar business and providing Japan with safe and clean energy.
