Showa Shell to build big solar power panel plant

TOKYO —Showa Shell Sekiyu KK is planning to set up one of the world’s biggest factories for manufacturing solar power generation panels in 2011 at a cost of about 100 billion yen, sources familiar with the matter said Wednesday.

The combined power generation capacity of solar panels produced in a year at the factory would be as large as 1,000 megawatts, which matches that of a nuclear reactor, they said.
