Tarlac City, 10 September 2019 – Total Solar has just completed the construction of a solar-powered rooftop for CityWalk Mall in Tarlac City, Philippines. The goal is to drive down power costs by more than 10% and carbon footprint in a sustainable way.

CityWalk Mall is one of the busiest malls in the region. The solar power cost offered by Total is much cheaper than the grid cost. The capacity of the solar project is 332 kilowatts (kW), which can generate an estimated 475 megawatt-hours (MWh) per year. Installation of the solar PV system will allow CityWalk to save up to 265 tons of CO2 per year, which represents around 4000 trees saved each year.

“Total Solar is committed to helping customers drive down costs and carbon footprint together. We are very pleased to be a partner for commitment to sustainability and drive to provide value to customers. We are proud to be considered a long-term partner for Philippines customers and are committed to helping reduce pollution and climate change impacts for the country,” said Gavin Adda, Total Solar’s CEO for Industrial & Commercial Solar in Asia.

Total Solar is the only global provider of solar solutions for Commercial & Industrial companies and has projects operating across the whole of South-East Asia. This is part of the commitment to increase the low carbon energy portfolio to 20% of its activities by 2030. This means that the company has adopted principles of social responsibilities in ways that are globally accepted and recognized such as implementing fair operating principles, prevention of pollution, community involvement and development, and health and safety at work.
