Argo says that installing solar panels can bring GRP a variety of benefits. The potential reduction in annual carbon dioxide emissions through the ESG program, as well as cost savings because of the solar panel’s relatively low power consumption.


This is a long-term and sustainable benefit. He explained that this will help us to be more competitive in the future and enable us to produce green energy.

The total system capacity of the solar panels in phase 1 of the Forming Service Center area is 900 kWp. They can produce 1,239,068 kWh of electricity annually. This represents a reduction in 991.25 tonnes of CO2 emissions per megawatt hour. It is a step towards more sustainable and cleaner energy use. GRP plans to install additional solar panels on the roof of GRP’s factory with a target capacity of 33,000 kWp. It is expected that it will be complete by 2025.

The rooftop solar power plant has several sensors that monitor temperature, wind speed, and ambient temperature. This will make it easy to operate and maintain. Remote monitoring will be used to provide data on performance and carbon footprint.
