Cleantech Solar, a leading provider of renewable energy solutions to corporations in Southeast Asia and India, has powered up two rooftop solar PV systems in Thailand – a 1 MW rooftop solar PV project in Pathumthani province for a major consumer electronics multinational, and a 500-kW solar PV system at the manufacturing facility of another multinational plastic products manufacturer for the automotive industry in Rayong. Both projects have been delivered under long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs).
The solar projects have been completely financed, designed and installed by Cleantech Solar, and will be operated and maintained by Cleantech Solar during the term of the PPA. The projects are expected to have a combined generation of over 34.7 GWh of clean electricity during their lifetime, which is equivalent to offsetting over 20 kilotonnes of CO2 emissions, thereby enabling the offtakers to realise their goal of making the switch to green energy and powering operations sustainably.
Raju Shukla, Founder and CEO of Cleantech Solar, said “It is a matter of immense happiness for Cleantech Solar to partner with some of the world’s leading corporates as they embrace green and renewable solar power to run their operations. The commissioning of these two projects in Thailand underscores the commitment of top corporates towards sustainable business practices. Our high-quality solar PV solution will help these clients derive the benefits of clean energy by way of significantly reduced emissions and electricity costs, and will provide security of energy supply, whilst contributing to Thailand’s clean energy transition.”
