TAGUIG CITY, Philippines, Oct. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Total Solar is providing solar rooftop systems for three malls operated by Gaisano Capital in Luzon and the Visayas in the Philippines. With a combined capacity of 1.8 megawatt (MW), the installations are designed to generate around 2 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of power, this carbon footprint reduction is equivalent to planting 3,500 trees each year.
The photovoltaic systems are expected to cover over 30% of Gaisano's power needs and will slash its energy bill by over 15%.
"We chose to partner with Total Solar for our Solar PV System requirements because we are assured of Total's Bankability, High Standard in Safety, Technical expertise and Quality of Installation," said Willy Ngujo, Corporate Engineering & Maintenance Manager at Gaisano Capital.
