Intel unveils largest solar power plant outside the US


Intel opted for renewable energy for its operations in Malaysia. Company completed in January new 3.2 megawatts Thanks to (MW) solar installation Kulim and Penang It uses solar energy to power six buildings on its campus.

Facility, renewable energy developer NEFIN in the total installed power supplied by 4,1 MWIt can provide up to energy. In addition, the project is described as Intel’s largest solar power plant outside the US.

The project is part of Intel’s 2030 goals

2020The solar project, which started in photovoltaic electric power capacity about 15 percentcontributes to. It also approximates carbon dioxide emissions. 3,800 ton reducing.

Robin Martin, corporate vice president, general manager of Assembly Test Manufacturing and general manager of Intel Malaysia, said the following about the project;

“Our ongoing investments in alternative energy are the cornerstone of Intel’s commitment to operate our manufacturing facilities with minimal environmental impact. The use of field-generated renewable energy at Intel Malaysia is a critical part of Intel’s efforts to do better for our planet as a responsible corporate citizen, and achieving 100 percent renewable power is part of our RISE 2030 goals ”

Intel’s new solar power plant panels in Malaysia, 900 cars parking lot and building roofs 50.208 fit it covers an area equivalent to a square area. This plant is approximately 6.000 megawatt hour is expected to produce electricity.

Solar resources will partially replace the electricity demand of the campus during peak hours. The supply of energy from solar sources is also helping to diversify and incorporate renewable energy into the campus energy supply mix, hitherto predominantly powered by natural gas and coal sources.

Intel, world Day of with the theme “Refresh Our WorldIn line with, it reaffirmed its commitment to conserve energy and expand renewable energy projects and energy efficient technologies to help combat climate change.

In addition, Intel has already installed several solar power systems to provide hot water to all its campuses in Malaysia and will continue to expand clean and green energy sources to reduce emissions.
