    “…Japan is known for its expensive, upper-crust golf clubs…[But] golf participation is down more than 40 percent from its high in the early 1990s. Now, the country is facing a severe over-development of golf courses. One solution: turning them into solar power plants…Kyocera has already begun construction of a 23-megawatt solar power plant on an abandoned golf course in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan, [which is expected to begin operating in September 2017, and it] plans to develop a 92-megawatt plant at an abandoned golf course in Kagoshima Prefecture…[T]he large size and relative lack of shade common to most golf courses make them ideal sites for solar farms…Morphing these surplus golf courses into hubs of green energy will provide the crowded island nation with much-needed clean power, advocates say…” click here for more
