Cleantech Solar has announced the completion of four rooftop solar PV systems at Cargill sites across Thailand under long-term agreements where Cleantech Solar has funded, built, and will operate and maintain the systems. The solar power plants have a combined generating capacity of 2.4 MW and are located in different locations in Lopburi, Korat and Phetchaburi.
The four operating sites are expected to generate over 3,000 MWh of clean electricity in a year which is equivalent to reducing 1,750 tonnes of CO2, representing perceptible efforts by Cargill to cut down greenhouse gas emissions from its operations globally.
Southeast Asia’s growth in electricity demand has been one of the fastest in the world and there is substantial potential for the adoption of renewable energy in the region.
The new sites will add on to Cleantech Solar’s portfolio of operating solar power plants in Thailand, which have since generated over 35 GWh of clean electricity, enough to power 17,500 Thai households per year.
