As of yesterday, 23rd August, Pekat is partnering with Proton to promote the adoption of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in Malaysia!
As part of Proton’s energy sustainability initiatives, their subsidiary – Proton Global Services Sdn Bhd (PGS), under Proton Edar Sdn Bhd – have partnered with Pekat’s solar subsidiary – Solaroo Systems Sdn Bhd – to promote the adoption of solar PV systems in Malaysia: electric power systems designed to supply solar power to users through photovoltaics, the conversion of light into electricity.
The partnership will build upon Pekat’s 12 megawatt-peak grid-connected solar PV system at Proton’s manufacturing plant in Tanjung Malim, Perak – which potentially has the power to provide annual energy savings of RM5.85mil for Proton – as well as aid the latter to reduce their carbon footprint by up to 11,536 tonnes per annum.
In a joint statement, the partnership between PGS and Solaroo – and thus, Proton and Pekat – not only marks the beginning of the next phase in the green energy adoption journey for Proton but also positively adds to the track record in the commercial and industrial segments for Solaroo.
Following our investment into new energy technologies at Tanjung Malim, we are hoping to adopt more energy savings measures throughout our entire ecosystem in line with the government’s target to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.Roslan Abdullah, CEO of Proton Edar Sdn Bhd
