SBI Energy Corp developed a farming solar power plant (for solar sharing) with an output of about 1.2MW in Tono City, Iwate Prefecture, Japan.

SBI Energy (Minato-ku, Tokyo), which is a subsidiary of SBI Holdings Inc and runs a renewable energy-related business, started commercial operation of the plant, "SBI Tono First Solar Sharing Power Plant," June 17, 2019, and had a ceremony to celebrate the completion of the plant Aug 23, 2019.

On about 1.9ha of abandoned farmland, 4,580 solar panels were installed. The plant is expected to generate about 1,390MWh of electricity, which is equivalent to the amount consumed by 316 households, per year, eliminating about 702t of CO2 per year.
