LG Electronics – Thailand

The first onsite solar project for LG Electronics here in Thailand

Need

LG has set a goal to make leadership among manufacturers be in harmony with the environment. In this regard, LG commits to reducing its carbon footprint while enjoying environmental credentials to generate a positive brand impact with local and global stakeholders.

Challenges

As a leading electronics and PV panel manufacturer, the development of a solar energy system that switches away from the national grid electricity supply will provide an advantage for LG. Significant cost saving during operations and significant reduction of GHG emissions shall be seen.

Solution

BECIS has developed an onsite solar PV panel system of 4.185 MWp utilising the Mono X Plus PV panel (LG445W) manufactured by LG for 9,402 modules over 20,919 sqm. The system will generate up to 5,700 MWh per year, equivalent to an electricity supply of about 560 households. Most importantly, the Solar PV panels can significantly reduce GHG of 3,000 tons of CO2 per year on average.
