Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG) has signed an agreement with Ching Luh Group to provide the manufacturing company with 3.2 MW of solar-powered rooftops for two of its facilities in Vietnam.
This marks a milestone for Total Solar DG as it secures its first solar project in Vietnam. Total Solar DG has been active in Southeast Asia since 2018 and has a portfolio of in-operation solar systems across seven countries, currently generating around 17 GWh of solar energy annually. Alongside other projects in current development, this project with Ching Luh Group will add 4.4 GWh upon its completion later in 2020.
Ching Luh Group will have two of its Vietnam facilities equipped with a 2 MWp and 1.2 MWp rooftop solar system, respectively, by Total Solar DG. In line with Ching Luh Group’s sustainability initiative, an estimated 19,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced over the 12-year contract period.
“Adopting renewable energy by going solar reinforces Ching Luh Group’s ‘Make It Right’ philosophy. This emphasises environmental awareness, quality and maximising shareholder value as part of our corporate mission. Total Solar DG plays a vital role, enabling us to reduce carbon emissions, be more self-sufficient in our power needs and lower our operation costs,” said David Wang, Group Facility Management Head of Ching Luh Group.
Previously, Total Solar DG has completed nearly 8 MW of roof-mounted solar systems so far in 2020 in Asia Pacific and is looking to grow its portfolio of operating solar energy assets in the region by around 60 MW.
