Dell Technologies has recently announced the implementation of its largest on-site solar panel installation globally at the Dell Technologies Asia Pacific Customer Centre in Bukit Mertajam, Penang, Malaysia. This solar photovoltaic system worth RM2.25 million is also a first in Southeast Asia for a Dell Technologies facility. The 700 kilowatts peak (kWp) rooftop system is made of 1,590 highly efficient panels that are designed to produce nearly 1,000 MWh of renewable electricity annually.
This facility will power more than 25% of the production lines at the 24-hour facility and with this installation, Dell Technologies aims to reduce the facility’s annual greenhouse gas emissions by about 650 tonnes.
Pang Yee Beng, who is the senior vice-president South Asia and managing director Malaysia, said Dell Technologies has committed to reducing emissions across facilities, supply chain and in the energy intensity of the products over the next decade and reaching net zero emissions by 2050. Solar power installation is key to achieving this goal and they are extremely proud to lead the way in Malaysia with their largest on-site solar power installation globally to reduce emissions and create positive environmental impact.
