Update on Pendang solar installation by BSL Eco Energy

Our installation up north is blazing new ground, recording an average daily energy generation of 4MWh since its initial operation date on 31st December 2016.

In its 14 months of operation, the the energy generation of our solar system in Pendang, Kedah, has surpassed the figures of our design stage forecast simulation by 6%.

BSL Eco Energy Chief Engineer Randy Chuah attributed the strong performance to better irradiance up north, proper maintenance, and a properly designed plant.

“We were delighted and surprised by the figures. This is one of the best performing solar farms owned by BSL Eco Energy,” he said.

The 1MW system was approved under the Government’s Feed-In-Tariff program, and is owned, installed and operated by BSL Eco Energy.

The installation is estimated to displace around 913,500kg of Co2 per year and generate enough energy to power 420 homes.

A variety of crops are grown beneath the shade of the solar panels, including chillis, brinjals, ladies fingers and mushrooms. The crops are maintained by a farmer who lives on site with his lively collection of stray dogs and cats.
