PARIS (Reuters) - French energy group Total said it has begun the construction of its third solar power plant in Japan, the Miyagi Osato Solar Park, planned for a peak capacity of 52 megawatts.

The project is to start up in 2021 and will provide clean and reliable electricity to Japanese households, said Total.

Total has made a series of deals this year as it builds up its presence in the renewable energy sector.
