LONGi completes rooftop project for Toyota Boshoku Group

Global News

LONGi, the world’s leading solar technology company, has recently completed 1,470.56 kWp solar system for Toyota Boshoku Group – a world’s premium automobile interior system manufacturer.

Project EPC is provided by Solar Electric Vietnam JSC (“SEV”), a leading EPC with a strong track record of conducting EPC for MNCs in Vietnam. 

LONGi’s Hi-MO 4 is selected for the project, the 166mm-wafer solar module is a perfect fit to maximize system yield while reducing execution time due to its light weight and compatibility for rooftop solar applications. Toyota Boshoku Group has a mandate to reduce 2% CO2 emission every year. With the implementation of the project, it is expected to offset over 1,582 MWh energy consumption per year, and it will help Toyota to reduce 1,338 tons of CO2 annually.

Tuan Le, a SEV's engineer who designed the system expresses: “It is my pleasure to work with LONGi once again, as the brand is well acknowledged by global MNCs. SEV will continue to facilitate COP26 commitment from the Vietnam government.”

“We are happy to witness SEV’s success in distributed solar business this year, especially when FiT3 policy is yet to be introduced in Vietnam.” Commented by Dennis She, LONGi’s President of Global Sales & Marketing, “We remain confident in the development of Vietnamese and Southeast Asia market since the cost of solar power is already cheaper than what most utilities are offering.”
