This is the third phase of the solar PV project that Cleantech Solar is developing for the automotive giant, with the first two phases running successfully since 2020 and 2021 respectively. This new phase takes the total system size to 2 MWp.

The long-term solar partnership between Cleantech Solar and Bosch is expected to generate approximately 47 GWh of clean energy during the lifetime of the project, leading to a reduction of nearly 25 kilotonnes of CO2 emissions. Cleantech Solar is the turnkey solar energy provider and has financed, designed, built, and will be operating and maintaining the project throughout the term of the agreement.

“Bosch Thailand is already operating 100 percent on solar electricity, either out of our own solar source or purchased as solar energy from the grid” said Martin Knoss, Regional President ASEAN of Bosch Powertrain Solutions. “With this further extension of our solar rooftop area, we can rely even more on own sources. The project with Cleantech Solar is one of our lighthouse activities and it has always been a pleasure to work with Cleantech as a very reliable partner.”

Raju Shukla, Founder and CEO of Cleantech Solar, added that the project is a testament to Bosch’s commitment to reduce their carbon footprint, making sustainable manufacturing their motto.
