TotalEnergies announced it reached the milestone of 500 MW of onsite solar distributed generation in operation for B2B customers.
The company has installed solar sytems at more than 300 sites of its industrial and commercial customers in Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the United States.
TotalEnergies sells the green electricity through long-term onsite Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). It develops, finances, builds and operates the solar installations on roofs, carports, and available industrial land.
“We are delighted to have reached 500 MW of onsite B2B distributed solar capacity worldwide,” said Matthieu Langeron, VP Solar Distributed Generation at TotalEnergies. “With a footprint spanning 30 countries worldwide in the Distributed Generation business, we expect to speed up our growth and expand our portfolio in operation to one gigawatt by 2023”.
This milestone was celebrated with the launch of commercial operations at Vinamilk, one of the largest dairy companies in Vietnam. In October, TotalEnergies completed construction on a 4.8MWp rooftop solar project, helping to cut costs and carbon for Vinamilk’s facilities.
“The installation of solar panels in Vinamilk factories and dairy farms is part of Vinamilk solution for green and renewable energy,” said Mai Kieu Lien, CEO at Vinamilk. “Vinamilk aims to fulfill its commitment of achieving zero-carbon in 2050 to participate in realising the country’s ‘Net-Zero’ commitment”.
TotalEnergies is a global multi-energy company that produces and markets energies with a global portfolio of 3 GW of solar distributed generation under development, under construction or in operation.
