The Pure Life Society, a 73-year-old organization in Puchong (Selangor), which has provided care for over 2,000 orphans has now turned to renewable energy.


It currently houses 40 children from different backgrounds. OCBC Bank Malaysia Bhd has installed solar panels of worth RM131,500 at the home’s main wing, which includes the administrative building as well as the girls’ dormitory.


This project was part of the bank’s 90th-year anniversary celebration. It was a collaboration of the Puchong, Subang Jaya, as well as Kota Damansara branches along with Bolt Industries Sdn Bhd, and the Lions Club Kuala Lumpur Parkcity.


Pure Life Society will also be installing solar panels in the boys’ dormitory at a later date.


Bolt Industries provided 61 Tier 1 solar modules for the main building. They were complete with mounting structures and an inverter. A monitoring system was also installed to monitor the system’s performance.

The orphanage can now save RM1,703 per month on electricity bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2,138kg each year over the next 25 years, which is the lifetime of the solar panels.

“We are increasingly seeking to encourage sustainability-linked initiatives that meet Environmental, Social, and Governance standards. We are grateful to Bolt Industries & Lions Club of KL Parkcity for the collaboration.”
