Thailand: Beginning of the construction of a 7 MWp single-rooftop project — the largest solar rooftop in the country

Total Solar Distributed Generation has signed a binding contract to provide a 7 MWp solar rooftop to S. Kijchai, the leading manufacturer of wood-based panels in Thailand. Equipped with over 17,500 solar panels, the solar system is designed to generate 9.6 GWh of renewable electricity per year, which will avoid 4,910 tons of CO2 emissions a year. 

Philippines: Three solar-powered rooftops of 1.2 MWp completed for Gaisano Capital Malls 

Total Solar Distributed Generation has installed 1.2 MWp of solar-powered rooftops at three malls operated by Gaisano Capital, one of the largest mall and supermarket chains in the Philippines.
