Rayong, Thailand, 18 August 2022: Cleantech Solar, a leading provider of renewable energy solutions to corporations in Southeast Asia and India, has commissioned a 1 MWp rooftop solar PV system for DENSO TEN at their manufacturing facility in Rayong, Thailand. The solar PV project has been delivered under a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) signed between Cleantech Solar and DENSO TEN (THAILAND) Limited, a subsidiary of DENSO TEN Limited, which is engaged in manufacturing automotive electronics and audio-visual components.
This long-term partnership between Cleantech Solar and DENSO TEN in Thailand is expected to generate nearly 18 GWh of clean energy during the system’s lifetime, which amounts to offsetting over 10 kilotonnes of CO2 emissions. The solar PV system will help DENSO TEN harness the benefits of clean renewable energy, fulfilling their social responsibility targets, saving on energy costs and enabling a more sustainable supply chain.
Mr. Satoshi Tai, President of DENSO TEN (THAILAND) Limited, said:
“We conduct business with environmental care as an integral part of our corporate philosophy by Creating a sustainable society through mobility by earth-friendly energy for a more sustainable future. It is also the implementation of DENSO Group policy to eliminate CO2 emissions by 2035.”
Mr. Raju Shukla, Founder and CEO of Cleantech Solar, said:
“It is a pleasure for us to be the trusted solar partner for DENSO TEN (THAILAND). Thailand is an important market, where we have been witnessing rising uptake of green energy by top-tier industrial customers.
