Asia Brewery Inc. (ABI), a leading beverage and industrial packaging company has awarded TotalEnergies ENEOS a 13.8 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) system on one of its manufacturing facilities in the Philippines.
This system will power about 24% of the facility with renewable energy. It is one of the largest single-site rooftop solar projects in the Philippines built under the no-capex business model.
With over 24,000 solar panels installed, the PV system will generate approximately 20,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable energy annually, realising significant cost savings for ABI and reducing the company’s carbon footprint by about 9,600 tons of CO2 emissions annually, equivalent to planting more than 129,000 trees over the contract period.
Under the project, TotalEnergies ENEOS will install and operate the PV solar system while ABI will pay for the electricity generated for 9 years, without taking any upfront investments.
Michael G. Tan, President and COO of Asia Brewery said, “We are pleased to have partnered with TotalEnergies ENEOS for this milestone project. Aside from translating to cost savings and energy efficiency for us, this is one of our contributions in the fight against global warming.”
Gavin Adda, Director of TotalEnergies ENEOS Renewables Distributed Generation Asia said, “As the leading solar power provider in the region, we are honoured to offer solar solutions that minimise costs and lower the carbon footprint of Asia Brewery. TotalEnergies ENEOS provides its customers peace of mind from a technical, financial and commercial perspective. We are dedicated to being a long-term energy partner for Asia Brewery and welcome the opportunity to collaborate further in the future.”
