Cambodia: This is TotalEnergies first-of-a-kind Solar Energy

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia, Jan. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Siem Reap based Kulara Water has commissioned TotalEnergies to design, install and operate the solar energy and energy storage solution for their bottling facility.

The innovative system combines a hybrid of solar energy and battery storage, providing energy continuously. This includes an on-site 650 kilowatt-peak (kWp) ground-mounted solar system connected to an 896 kilowatt-hours (kWh) battery system.

Margaret Forey, Chairwoman of Kulara Water, says it is an achievement in the company’s sustainability strategy.

“Our partnership with TotalEnergies represents the latest achievement in our sustainability strategy. It is just the beginning of our adoption of solar energy solutions to power our operations.”

Solar energy is used during the day and excess power is stored in the batteries for use during the night. The installation of the system was completed on January 3, 2022 and will improve Kulara Water’s energy efficiency, reduce power costs and ensure better access to power supply.

TotalEnergies will remain in partnership with Kulara Water for the next 15 years to ensure the safe production and storage of energy in the system.
