Clean energy for Thai food conglomerate

Thai agro-industrial and food conglomerate Betagro Group has achieved its clean energy initiative with the completed construction of solar-powered rooftops for its 24 facilities. The company said the project is one of the largest corporate solar portfolios in Southeast Asia, offering clean energy to the group through 20-year corporate power purchase agreements.
The clean energy project aims to raise the food industry's standard through innovations by complying with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), such as zero hunger, good health and well-being, responsible consumption and production, and partnerships.
Betagro said the 25 megawatt-peak (MWp) system would generate an estimated 38 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of renewable electricity per year, providing about 10% of the company's total power consumption. The new design reduces CO2 emissions by 26,000 tons per year. The savings is said to be comparable to approximately 4,300 fewer cars on the road.
