IJ Global Awards 2017
Sojitz has received the “Latin America Solar Deal of the Year” at the IJ Global Awards 2017 for its solar power project in Mexico, a project in which Sojitz owns a 20% stake. (The financing contract for the deal was concluded in August of last year.) The awards ceremony was held on March 15th at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York.
This project marks the first solar power project undertaken by a Japanese company in Mexico and will become one of the largest solar power plants in the world. Mexico is one of the top countries in terms of sun coverage, with anticipated long-term growth in the solar power industry. Sojitz will continue to accelerate the progress of its renewable energy initiatives in Latin America as well as in the North American regions.
