Our Green Energy Movement welcomes environmentally conscious people all around the world to help accomplish the expansion of renewable, clean energy. With your donation, you can help us install megawatt-scale solar power systems. The fund raised from the systems allows the Movement to expand, helping us realize eco-friendly, sustainable power generation.
Who We Are
By making your donation for this Movement, you can care for Earth by participating in sustainable power generation as a proud contributor to a solar panel in our megawatt scale solar plant, located in Nishigo-mura, Nishishirakawa-gun, Fukushima. The plant is planned with a capability to generate about 790 megawatts hours per year, which is equivalent to the amount of electricity used in about 233 households per year.
-We now have plants in Kyoto and Fukushima-
We have already been able to raise our target amount of fund for Seicho-No-Ie Joyo, Kyoto Mega Solar Power Plant. Thanks to all those who supported us, we have been able to close donations for it and move on to Fukushima.
Location:427-1, 2 Babasaka Odakura
Nishigo-mura, Nishishirakawa-gun, Fukushima, Japan (site area: 39,692㎡)
Solar cell capacity: 771kW (3,024 of 255W panels installed)
Planned generating amount: about 790MWh (equivalent to electricity used in about 233 households per year)
Planned annual CO2 reduction: about 374t (equivalent to 26,737 cedar trees)
Location:3-2 Okuyama Kuse
Joyo-shi, Kyoto, Japan (site area: 36,140㎡)
Solar cell capacity: 1704.5kW (6,412 of 266W panels installed)
Planned generating amount: about 1,834MWh (equivalent to electricity used in about 540 households per year)
Planned annual CO2 reduction: about 960t (equivalent to 68,629 cedar trees)
Many have already joined the Green Energy Movement
I heard about this movement from a friend. I'm not a SNI member, but the idea of this movement resonated within me, so I made my donation. I was a bit afraid that this would be a part of their missionary work, but that was not the case at all. I can't say that I'm a perfect eco-friendly citizen, but I feel that I've been able to do my small part through this movement.
I heard from a fellow SNI member at my Fukushima Truth of Life Center that there'll be a green energy facility in my area, so I made my donation with my family. Especially after the 3.11, the energy problem is not somebody else's issue, so I hope that not only the SNI members but also non-members take it to heart and join this movement.

Seicho-No-Ie Natural Energy Expansion Fundrasing
Nowadays abnormal weather conditions due to global warming are causing frequent disasters all over the world. Food production is not increasing, and many species of animals and plants are facing extinction. Under these conditions the key to curtail global warming and lessen the damage produced by climate change lies in the expansion of natural energy and greater efficiency in its use. Throughout the world 164 countries have introduced such support measures as setting up target goals for the implementation of natural energy standards. Electric power facilities based on natural energy sources were estimated to account for 27.7% of the total electric generation capacity in the world and to reach the scale of 22.8% of worldwide electric power supply to meet electric demand as of the end of 2014. Solar power generation, accounting for 0.9% of it, is 177GW, showing a 48-fold increase in a decade.
In Japan however, as if forgetting the lessons from the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake, there is a strong movement to be seen trying to keep alive the "old civilization" under policies that place their priority on the economy, relying on nuclear power generation and fossil energy. In 2014, total electric power in Japan consisted of thermal power generation (87.8%), hydro-power generation (9.0%), geothermal power generation and new energy (3.2%). In August 2015, the Sendai No. 1 Nuclear Power Unit restarted operations. The situation is such that we fall short by far of being a sustainable society.
We who live today must reflect on what our way of life will leave to the next generations. The legacy of the "old civilization" is a massive amount of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere, harsh climatic conditions, degraded soil and ecological systems, and harmful nuclear waste: all of which poses a risk to life.
Seicho-No-Ie thinks that human society can, by changing this and making full-scale use of natural energy, accomplish the "abandonment of nuclear power generation" and "curtailment of global warming", and achieve a way of life in which nature and human beings are more in harmony. Based on this belief, Seicho-No-Ie has moved its International Headquarters to the "Office in the Forest" (Hokuto City, Yamanashi Prefecture), completed in July 2013, and it operates the office compound with "carbon zero" technology, with no emissions of greenhouse gas. Almost all energy used for office work and commuting is done by simultaneous use of solar power generation (470kW), biomass power generation (175kW), and lithium ion battery (400kWh).
In this way it is possible, by using state-of-the-art technologies, to accomplish a way of life that leaves no "negative legacy" to future generations and moreover, to free ourselves from a materialistic lifestyle. The most important and urgent issue is, in particular, to change rapidly the major energy sources of human civilization into natural energy in order to reduce the number of victims of disasters and preserve the fertility of nature.
On the basis of this idea, Seicho-No-Ie is widely raising contributions, not only from its members but also from people with common interests and aspirations, to proceed to set up mega-solar power plants (large-scale photovoltaic power generation) as an international project. In 2015 we established a mega solar power plant with a generating capacity of 1,704 kW in Kyoto Prefecture. In Fukushima Prefecture, that has seriously suffered from the nuclear accident and aims to create a society which does not rely on nuclear power generation by making active use of renewable energy, we have set up a 771kW solar power plant.
Your cooperation with Seicho-No-Ie Natural Energy Expansion Movement will be highly appreciated to attain a future society in which nature and human beings grow together.
