JNC Group's core business includes manufacture, sales, and research and development of liquid crystal materials and organic EL materials which are essential to a highly information-oriented society. At the same time, we regard the environment and energy groups as an important business domain, and own run-of-river type hydraulic power stations (total maximum output of 93,200 kW) in 13 places in the Kyushu area, and also work on photovoltaic power generation.


The Hachiman power station is a mega-solar facility utilizing our former Corporation residence site (about 30,000 m2), and is the third power station completed in JNC Group. The power generation capacity is 2.6 MW and the annual power generation amount is estimated to supply about 800 ordinary homes. We will take advantage of the power generation know-how that we have cultivated so far in order to ensure a safe and stable supply.


The photovoltaic power generation emits only a limited amount of green-house effect gas, and is a power generation system capable of producing everlasting clean energy. JNC will conduct business activities with consideration for the natural environment and regional communities, and will continue our efforts to make contributions to the society.
