TÂY NINH — Skylar Joint Stock Company, a subsidiary of BCG Energy JSC, held a grand inauguration ceremony for the rooftop solar system installed at Kangda Board Co., Ltd located in the Linh Trung III export processing zone, Tây Ninh Province, on December 28.
Skylar JSC, which specialises in rooftop solar, signed two contracts with Kangda Board and Sheng He Wood to supply and install rooftop solar systems with a capacity of 6 MW and 2.3 MW respectively on September 29. Both companies are situated in the Linh Trung III processing zone.
The systems with a total capacity of 8.3 MW and costing of over VNĐ150 billion (US$6.4 million) have been installed and put into operation after three months of construction.
The ceremony was attended by local leaders, the management of the processing zone and representatives of Bamboo Capital Group, its subsidiaries and strategic partners.
According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, rooftop solar is a clean and renewable energy, which helps prevent power loss during transmission.
Besides, rooftop solar systems make use of the existing grid, generate electricity mainly during the day, the peak time for the power system, thus helping reduce load peaks, and take advantage of roof space in residential areas and industrial parks.
Under MoIT’s renewable energy programme, the country plans to have 100,000 rooftop solar systems, equivalent to 1,000 MW of capacity.
In 2020 BCG Energy put into operation a number of rooftop solar projects in HCM City, Bình Dương, Tiền Giang, Bến Tre, Lâm Đồng, Quảng Ngãi, and Bình Định with a total capacity of 43 MW.
The company currently has 100 MW in the pipeline ready to be developed. It aims to have 500 MW of rooftop solar energy in commercial operation in 2020 –24. — VNS
