Symbior Solar announced that SIIX EMS (Shanghai) 1.8414MW rooftop solar project officially starts commercial operation. The project is located at No. 415, Xingping Road, Malu Town, Jiading District, Shanghai. It is the first rooftop solar power plant of SIIX EMS cooperating with Symbior China.
The off taker of the solar project is SIIX EMS (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of SIIX Corporation. Its main businesses include the production and assembly of electronic circuit board, control box, accessories, and provide relevant technical consultation, etc. SIIX Corporation plans to promote the installation of solar panels to reduce GHG emissions, and this is the first installation in the SIIX Corporation.
Symbior Solar as the investor of the project is responsible for operation and maintenance in whole project life. Symbior will ensure the generation of solar PV system and continually supply green renewable energy to SIIX EMS (Shanghai) over the next 25 years.
The installed capacity of the project is 1.8414MWp. The system occupies 15000 square meters roof space with 3960 pieces of mono-crystalline modules. The estimated average annual generation is 1,823,000 kWh and will reduce around 1,817.5 tons of CO2 per year. Symbior Solar and SIIX EMS (Shanghai) signed a 25-year energy management contract to share energy-saving benefits and achieve a win-win situation. The model of the solar projects is self-generation of power on the roof of the off taker and self-consumption, then utilize the surplus power to the grid. The project not only brings saving on utility bills to SIIX EMS (Shanghai), but also help green and low-carbon transition, undertaking of social responsibility and demonstrating the sustainable image of the company.
“This collaboration with Symbior Solar is our first step in promoting the installation of solar panels to reduce GHG emissions. In the future, we will continue to make efforts to assume social responsibilities and strive for the Sustainable Development Goals”, said Mr. Hiroaki Takagi, managing director of SIIX EMS (Shanghai).
“It is a great honor to cooperate with SIIX EMS (Shanghai), and it is also the first project cooperated with SIIX in China. We look forward to more collaboration opportunities in the future with SIIX, not only can we achieve mutual benefits, but also can contribute to reducing carbon emissions”, said Hally Huang, the general manager of Symbior Solar China.
Low-carbon economy has been become the major trend globally. More and more commercial and industrial facility owners are now actively looking for green distributed energy service to lower their costs and leverage their corporate image. Distributed solar is the major force among the group of distributed energy services with the outstanding advantages of flexibility, high efficiency, and environmental benefits.
For distributed photovoltaic power generation, not only the state and governments at all levels carry out price subsidies, but also users themselves can improve their economic benefits in many aspects by saving electricity costs and income from electricity sales connected to the grid.
