Global energy company, Total, through its affiliate Total Solar Distributed Generation, has signed a deal to provide 25 megawatt-peak (MWp) of solar rooftops for the 24 facilities of one of the largest food companies in Thailand, Betagro.
Each one of these projects benefits from a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Jointly they constitute one of the largest portfolios of corporate PPAs in Thailand.
Equipped with over 62.000 solar panels, the projects are designed to generate nearly 38 GWh of renewable electricity/year, helping the Bangkok-based company to reduce its carbon footprint by 26.000 tonnes of CO2 over the life of the solar rooftops while providing about 15% of the company’s total power consumption.
Worldwide, Total’s gross low-carbon power generation capacity is currently close to 7 GW including 3 GW from renewable energies. With over 5 GW of solar projects, announced since the beginning of 2020, the Total Group is on track to reach its objective of 25 GW of installed power generation capacity from renewable sources by 2025.
