RGC/Uratex Group of Companies has successfully installed another renewable energy source facility, a 100-kilowatt rooftop solar plant that will supply electricity to its manufacturing site located in Mandaue City, Cebu.

With Uratex Cebu’s solar power facility, the two immediate advantages that the system will provide is that it will contribute to the advocacy of using clean energy and, at the same time, it will be able to save on electricity cost by as much as 20 percent.

The renewable energy system will also help the company avoid 88 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year, which is equivalent to planting 1,455 trees or recycling 29.9 tons of waste instead of dumping it in landfills.

Apart from its current Cebu site, the RGC/Uratex Group has committed to set up solar panel facilities in the coming years in Bulacan, Pangasinan, Iloilo, Davao and Cagayan de Oro.
