AS THE country transitions to a low carbon future, Robinsons Malls demonstrates its environment, social and governance commitment by growing its solar energy portfolio to more than 30 megawatts (MW) to further cement its position as the country’s largest mall operator powered by solar.
This year, the mall operator installed solar rooftop projects in Robinsons Place Santiago in Isabela and in Robinsons Place Butuan in Agusan del Norte as the 22nd and 23rd malls powered by solar.
Meant to serve the mall’s energy consumption, the solar project helps ease power demand from the distribution system of the Isabela I Electric Cooperative Inc. which can be used to power up more crucial establishments amid the pandemic.
Robinsons Place Santiago’s solar project has an installed capacity of 2,091.26-kilowatt-peak (kWp), a total of 5,598 units of solar panels and 37 units of inverters.
The Santiago solar project, which started operations in April, has since generated a total of 519,871.28 kW-hr—equivalent to 368.44 metric tons (MT) of avoided CO2 emission or 6,092 trees planted.
Meanwhile, Robinsons Place Butuan has an installed total capacity of 1,296.00-kWp.
