Total Solar SEA, a subsidiary of Total S.A., has locked in contracts with Gaisano Capital to provide solar-powered rooftops to four Gaisano Malls in Luzon and Visayas. Gaisano Capital is Total Solar SEA’s first project in the country.
The combined installed capacity of the projects amount to 1.66 megawatts (MW), which can generate an estimated 2,257.3 Megawatt-hour (MWh) worth of electricity in a year. The four malls in Binangonan, Calapan, Masbate and San Carlos will have an installed capacity of 536 kilowatts peak (kWp), 268 kWp, 375.2 kWp and 482.4 kWp, respectively.
The project helps Gaisano Capital lower their so-called carbon or CO2 emissions by 1.25 million tons and reduce bottom line expenses for the company. Construction of the facilities will begin in November and will be online early 2019.
Total Solar SEA complies with the highest environmental, health and safety requirements entailing the quality and longevity of its systems. Its facilities use only Tier 1 components and work with the most experienced local contractors in the solar photovoltaic industry.
The energy player develops, owns and maintains solar PV rooftop and behind-the-meter facilities contracted through either a power purchase agreement or lease agreement depending on the country’s legal environment.
Total SEA is one with Total (Philippines) Corporation in its commitment to becoming the responsible energy major, catering to the energy needs of the country and its communities.
