Posted on July 24th, 2018

July 24 (Renewables Now) – Japanese Sri Lanka Friendship (JSF) Corp celebrated on Saturday the start of solar panel production at a facility in Katunayake which became Sri Lanka’s first solar manufacturing plant.

The company, a unit of Japanese firm REK CO Ltd, will sell the photovoltaic (PV) panels under the Sakura Solar brand. It will also offer inverters, batteries and LED lighting.

JSF’s plant is located at the Katunayake Export Processing Zone. The establishment of a local solar factory will support Sri Lanka’s clean energy goals, while it would also export to other markets.

    This is good news but the corrupt electricity board put absurd technical reasons to stop me getting paid for the electricity generated by my panels to the grid. We can’t do any thing in the island with so much bureaucracy that leads to corruption.

    This is the type of support we need from technically advanced nations; not to take over land and strategically important places and control us.
