Sakuto is simply massive in scale: 258MWdc and 750,000 PV modules, spanning the equivalent of 765 football fields. Built on a closed golf course and two other large areas, Sakuto required moving eight million cubic meters of earth and will take 2.5 years to finalize. Once complete, it will be the largest project in Japan.
