Jakarta, 2 February 2021 – PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical Tbk continues its partnership with Total Solar DG to build a second solar panel or photovoltaic (PV) installation in the former Cilegon plan. The rooftop PV installation will power Chandra Asri’s warehouses, laboratory building and charging station for electrical forklifts, reducing up to 438 ton of CO2 emission. It is set to produce an addition of 554 megawatt-hours of solar-powered electricity which represents an equivalent of 40 households’ consumption and will allow saving as much CO2 as planting almost 7000 trees.
The project follows the successful commissioning of Chandra Asri’s first solar system, which was built and commissioned by Total Solar DG in 2019 and has been able to produce 935 megawatt-hours of energy to power Chandra Asri’s office buildings in Cilegon.
Erwin Ciputra, President Director of Chandra Asri said, “We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint in every area that we can and ensure we minimize any impact from our operations to the environment. As one of the leading solar energy producers in South East Asia, Total Solar DG can help us meet our objectives as we continue to uphold sustainability principles in all areas of our operations.”
Gavin Adda, CEO of Total Solar Distributed Generation Southeast Asia said, “With a strong, growing presence in Asia, and trusted by companies such as Chandra Asri as the solar energy partner of choice, Total Solar DG provides a solution that fulfills both environmental sustainability and cost-saving goals. We look forward to supporting Chandra Asri in its efforts to reduce carbon emissions over the coming decades.”
