SUZHOU China--29 Jul--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

On July 9th, GCL System Integration (GCLSI), a world-leading solar solutions provider, as a partner of BCPG Public Company Limited (BCPG), was invited by Chiang Mai University (CMU) to share expertise on the successful connection of the largest university rooftop PV project in Thailand. The company supplied 12 MW of its high-efficiency solar panels to the project.

This project is developed by BCPG, a leading company in renewable energy among Asia-Pacific territories, and is part of making CMU a Smart University with a blockchain-based energy trading. "GCLSI is honored to be part of this project," the company's regional representative Mr. Apirak Worapamorn said. BCPG selected the high efficiency mono-crystalline module M672H for the project; the product has better energy yield with excellent low irradiance performance and temperature coefficient, and passed all tests including sand blowing, salt mist and ammonia corrosion to endure harsh environments implementation. Higher module efficiency brings lower BOS cost. GCLSI module panels are installed on more than 150 buildings in the university, and expected to generate over 18,300 MWh electricity every year. By utilizing solar power, CMU will reduce about 18,250 tons of carbon dioxide every year.

This project is one of the 34 projects that were selected under the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) Sandbox program in 2019. Currently, some 95% of Thailand's solar energy is produced from ground-mounted solar farms, according to Bangkok Post. In order to encourage more roof-top installations, Thai Energy Reform was requested to review the current roof-top solar installation conditions and to come up with a better plan by August. The purpose is to welcome 50 MW/year of electricity generated by roof-top solar installations over the next five years.

GCLSI, an international energy conglomerate specializing with over 20 years' experience in clean and sustainable energy, will provide diversified and customized energy solution products to meet the roof-top solar system demand.
