ORIX’s solar power generation business involves its renting the roofs of warehouses, commercial stores, factories, and other facilities owned by its customers, and installing solar power systems on them to generate electricity. I MISSIONS PARK SAKAI is the second logistics facility jointly developed by Itochu and Mapletree, and installed with ORIX’s rooftop solar power generation system, followed its predecessor project I MISSIONS PARK NODA(*). Together, these facilities have the capacity for 4.31 MW of solar power.

ORIX is currently developing its rooftop solar power projects across 375 sites with more than 100 MW of capacity secured in Japan (among which, 171 sites with a total of 85 MW of capacity are already in operation).

ORIX will continue to expand rooftop solar power generation at logistics warehouses, commercial stores, and factories, both those already built and those under construction, to increase the added value of those buildings and enhance facility-owners’ profitability.
