eurus-logoEurus Energy is no rookie in the world of renewable energy, but up until recently, wind had been its resource of choice. That’s changing — one massive solar plant at a time. The company’s Japan-based subsidiary recently completed a 1 MW photovoltaic project in South Korea, and now the group plans to build a plant of the same size in California. While location has yet to be determined (and snags in the siting process often lead to delays), Eurus said it expects to complete the project by 2010, according to a report from AFP.

This latest project comes just over a month after Eurus Energy’s U.S. subsidiary ventured into solar power with the creation of a new team focused on building large-scale photovoltaic projects in Western states. The new plant would bring Eurus’s renewables operating capacity to about 250 MW in California, a state where more than 30 utility-scale solar plants have been proposed in the last 18 months (we’ve mapped them here). Operations in other U.S. states, as well as in Japan, South Korea and Europe bring the company’s total renewable capacity to 1.7 GW.

tepco-pvEurus itself is owned by Japan’s Toyota Tsusho Corp., a parts maker for Toyota, and Tokyo Electric Power Co., which owns the world’s largest nuclear power plant (shuttered since 2007 because of earthquake damage). Lately it’s been bucking economic trends with a new hiring blitz.
