PETALING JAYA: Hextar Global Bhd, Rubberex Corp (M) Bhd and Pekat Group Bhd have teamed up to promote the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems as a renewable energy source and reduce carbon emission.
In a joint statement Thursday, it said the collaboration would see Hextar, Rubberex and Pekat combine their resources to donate a comprehensive solar power system for Tung Shin Hospital.
This is a significant move for the companies under a joint Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiative project to help the hospital reduce its electricity bill and carbon footprint as it serves the community.
Under the ESG initiative project, Hextar, Rubberex and Pekat will donate, design, supply and install the 154.44 kilo-watt peak (kWp) self-consumption grid-connected PV system for Tung Shin Hospital.
Due to the limited roof space of the hospital, only a 154.44 kWp solar PV system could be installed, and it is expected to generate up to 199,000kWh units of electricity annually while reducing carbon dioxide emission by 138.16 metric tons per year.
