Toyota PH Inaugurates PHP100 Million Laguna Solar Array Project

On December 5, Wednesday, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) inaugurated its PHP100 million solar array project in its Santa Rosa City, Laguna plant. The new facility is part of TMP's big-time initiatives to lower the company's carbon footprint and help curb the negative effects of climate change in the region. Once operational, the 1-megawatt solar array is expected to reduce the carmaker's annual carbon emissions by 790 tons.

The massive project was made possible through a partnership with the Japanese government and Manila Electric Company subsidiary Spectrum. For its part, the Japanese government subsidized 30 percent of the total cost of the project under the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) initiative that Japan offers to developing countries seeking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

TMP's other partner Spectrum performed the installation of the solar array on the 10,000-sqm roof of TMP's Material Handling Operations building.

"This project has come a long way since its conceptualization in 2016, and it is such an opportune time that we get to cap our 30th anniversary milestone with this very significant event," said TMP President Satoru Suzuki. "Likewise, I am proud to say that, so far, this renewable energy installation is the biggest among all car manufacturers in the Philippines."

Suzuki added that completion of the project arrived at a great time, as the company is celebrating its 30th year in the country.
