PVTIME – On July 27, Miza Corporation, has signed a long-term agreement with TotalEnergies to provide a 4 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) system to its new production facility in Vietnam, Mipak Co Ltd. The system will power about 20% of the facility’s energy with green power. This marks the first solar PV system built for the corporation who is looking to solarise for all its sites.
With around 7,500 of modules installed, the PV system will generate approximately 4,200 megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electricity annually, realising significant cost savings for Miza and reducing the company’s carbon footprint by about 1,250 tons of CO2 emissions, equivalent to planting around 19,000 trees annually.
Under the agreement, TotalEnergies will install and operate the PV solar system while Miza will pay for the electricity generated for 20 years, without taking any upfront investments. On top of it, Total Energies and Miza Corporation has signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) to commit to solarising other sites of Miza Corporation such as Miza Nghi Son and its new development planned on the 15 hectares land extension. The total capacity of PV system is estimated to reach 20 MW.
