2). Four solar power plants (20 MW) in Thailand acquired in August 2020
In addition, the solar power plants in Japan and hydropower plant “Nam San 3A” in Laos have made robust performance with higher power generation due to higher irradiation and higher rainfall, respectively, including lower administrative expense.

The appreciate of foreign currency against THB also led to an increase in these items value.

The A- rating also paved the way for BCPG to various sources of loan, strengthening the Company’s investment plans in the future”, said Bundit.
