Spectrum, a renewable energy subsidiary of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco) has provided Atkins Import and Export Resources Inc., with a 976.8-kilowatt peak (kWp) solar panel system in their largest cold storage facility in South Luzon.
The recently inaugurated facility is Atkins’ sixth in Luzon and the first to utilize clean energy.
The solar installation is projected to generate an estimated 1,362,100 kWh of clean energy in its first year and result in around PHP9.5 million in annual savings for Atkins. It will also reduce Arkins’ carbon footprint by approximately 970 tonnes, equivalent to over 44,500 trees planted or a 3.9 million kilometer reduction in vehicle travel per year.
Atkins engages in the importation and distribution of quality food products sourced from all over the world. They now join the roster of companies that have chosen Spectrum as their partner for renewable energy.
“With Spectrum’s end-to-end solar energy offering, our partners are assured to receive top-tier quality and reliable service to achieve sustainable operations. Rest assured, we will also provide the necessary support Atkins will need from Spectrum to ensure that its solar generating system is working seamlessly as this new cold storage is a critical addition to ensuring food security across the country,” Spectrum Chief Operating Officer, Patrick Henry T. Panlilio said.
Spectrum offers tailor-fit solutions for industrial, commercial, and residential customers through an in-depth understanding of energy consumption behaviors and strategic partnerships with world-class technology partners.
Backed by Meralco’s energy expertise and proven safety track record, the renewable company has been providing services and solutions that help customers reduce their costs while taking part in saving the planet.
