This solar investment is for the long run and it enables us to enjoy stable stream of income for the next 21 years, thus complementing the cyclical nature of our property businesses. Once the solar plant comes on stream in year 2023, we will be generating approximately 22,735MWh per annum of clean energy to the grid. We look forward to work with an experienced EPCC such like Solarvest to ensure smooth delivery of the project.”

Overall, we aim to welcome approximately RM600 million to RM700 million worth of EPCC projects from the LSS4 scheme alone.
