While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    JAPAN’S MEGA SUN RISING

    PV Project Development Accelerate from Land to Lake in Japan

    Junko Movellan, November 19, 2012 (SolarBuzz)

    “The year 2012 will be a turning point for the Japan PV market as the share of the residential segment will decline from this point forward…With the kick of the national FIT, the market driver will turn to the non-residential segment called “Mega Solar” in Japan…The Japanese government started implementing the FIT in July…[N]early 1.5 GW…of PV projects qualified for the program…60% of the total capacity the government was expecting…[thru] March 2013.

    “Of the 1.5 GW, systems sized over 1 MW accounted for over 50%...The new FIT program has created opportunities for developers/investors/owners. New players extend beyond traditional power generators or PV related companies, to medium and large corporations which have access to large land or roof space and capital. Notable project developers are telecom giants – NTT Group and Softbank – and trading companies – Marubeni and Mitsui.”

    “…[M] any local governments have welcomed this new program with open arms, as having large PV projects to their districts could stimulate the local economy by creating manufacturing and construction jobs and increase (property and income) tax revenue…Some local governments are offering inexpensive leases…[Project developers] promise profit-sharing with local governments in order to gain access to ideal land…Local governments and businesses are trying to turn available area into solar investing opportunities…[including] areas that have been unused…[like] old middle or high schools, industrial parks, water purification plants, reclaimed land, airports, golf courses, quarries, and silkworm farms, etc.

    “Competition for land is heated, and in some areas, the cost of leasing land is increasing. West Holdings, a leading PV system integrator and project developer…is planning to develop large “floating” solar systems on artificial lakes, reservoirs or retention basins. The company will use systems developed by LS Industrial Systems in South Korea and create ten floating systems that range from 1 to 2 MW each.”

    Obama's energy policy is right. The world goes solar. Japan's FiT in July is among the highest in the world. Japan's FiT is shaking the solar market. Now, United States has the same options. New solutions will be showed in Japan. This is it!
    As you know, earthquake in Japan is happening frequently. Floating solar panels installation is one of the best solutions for power crisis in Japan. So you have to reduce vibration to install Floating solar panels. Because, it makes many kinds of problems! Vibrations caused by wind, waves and external forces. New Floating Body Stabilizer for Floating solar panels installation has been created in South Korea. The Floating Body Stabilizers generate drag force immediately when Floating solar panels are being rolled and pitched on the water. Recently, these Floating Body Stabilizers have been used to reduce vibration of Floating Solar Panels in South Korea. You can watch New Floating Body Stabilizer videos on YouTube. http://youtu.be/O2oys_YHhCc, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA_xFp5ktbU&feature=youtu.be.
