The way to make solar profits in Japan is to be a foreign company

Trina Solar is building three new solar power farms like this one in Japan.

TOKYO -- Armed with economies of scale and experience gained in global markets, China's Trina Solar and other solar panel producers are making their presence felt in Japan, where domestic players scoff at an increasingly unattractive market.

Trina Solar, the world's biggest solar panel maker, is to develop mega-solar farms in Yamagata, Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures. It is aiming to raise its total installed capacity, including its existing Japanese plants, tenfold to 100 megawatts by the end of the year.
