Under a long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), Cleantech Solar will provide full turnkey financing, designing, installing, maintenance and operation of the PV system across the period of the agreement.

This partnership between Cleantech Solar and Konica Minolta is expected to generate approximately 66 GWh of clean energy during the system’s lifetime, equivalent to a reduction of nearly 52 kilotonnes of CO2 emissions. The solar PV system will contribute to the multinational company’s sustainability efforts in Malaysia, powering a part of their operations with clean, renewable solar energy.

“Konica Minolta joined RE100 in January 2019, a global leadership initiative that brings together businesses committed to sourcing 100% renewable energy for their operations” said Yoshiyuki Atarashi, Managing Director of Konica Minolta Business Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. “Konica Minolta aims to procure 100 percent of the power used in its own business activities from renewable energy sources by 2050. Malaysia is a tropical country, located strategically for obtaining sunlight throughout the year and is therefore perfect for solar panel installation. We are glad to be in a cooperative partnership with Cleantech Solar to develop this 3.4 MWp solar project, as we aim to expand our use of renewable energy and contribute towards reducing CO2 emissions. As a manufacturer practicing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we always promote and engage in many activities to reduce CO2 emissions at our production sites with a variety of energy conservation support programs that comply with Konica Minolta Environmental Policy. In the long term, we aim to achieve energy savings with stable supply and simultaneously minimise global warming concerns from daily operations.”
