Cleantech Solar, a leading provider of renewable energy solutions to corporations in Southeast Asia and India, has signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Griffith Foods Co. Ltd. to develop an 807 kWp solar PV system at their manufacturing facility’s rooftop and carport in Samut Prakan, Thailand. Griffith Foods Co. Ltd. is a subsidiary of Griffith Foods Group Inc., a global product development partner specialising in high-quality food ingredients.
This long-term solar partnership between Cleantech Solar and Griffith Foods is expected to generate nearly 18 GWh of clean energy during the lifetime of the project, leading to a reduction of over 10 kilotonnes of CO2 emissions. Cleantech Solar will provide the end-to-end solar solution, with the project being operated and maintained by Cleantech Solar throughout the term of the agreement.
Mr. Kandarp Singh, APAC President at Griffith Foods Co. Ltd., noted: “At Griffith Foods, we are committed to the conservation of the earth’s resources, the sustainable sourcing of materials and the responsible operation of our facilities. Our environmental ambition is to become carbon neutral in our own operations by 2030, reducing emissions across our value chain. We are delighted to partner with Cleantech Solar on this journey.”
Mr. Raju Shukla, Founder and CEO of Cleantech Solar, said: “We’re very happy to join hands with Griffith Foods in Thailand as their solar partner. Much like Griffith Foods’ commitment to helping their customers create better products and a more sustainable world, we too are committed to helping the world’s top corporates power their manufacturing with our high-quality and cost-effective solar solution that will result in marked reductions in carbon emissions, leading to a cleaner, greener environment.
