Toyota Mo­tor Philip­pines Corp. re­cently in­au­gu­rated its one-megawatt (MW) so­lar ar­ray at its man­u­fac­tur­ing/assem­bly plant in Santa Rosa City, one of TMP’s ma­jor ini­tia­tives to min­i­mize its car­bon foot­print and help mit­i­gate the ef­fects of cli­mate change. TMP also part­nered with Spec­trum, a Manila Elec­tric Co. sub­sidiary, which pro­vided tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise and car­ried out the so­lar ar­ray in­stal­la­tion. With the so­lar ar­ray sup­ply­ing four per­cent of the com­pany’s an­nual elec­tric­ity re­quire­ments, TMP will be able to re­duce pro­duc­tion op­er­a­tion’s CO2 emis­sions and gen­er­ate en­ergy cost savings of around P10 mil­lion an­nu­ally. The cer­e­mo­nial lights-on of the so­lar ar­ray scale model was led by (from left) TMP ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent To­mo­hiro Iwamoto, TMP pres­i­dent Sa­toru Suzuki, Mer­alco pres­i­dent Os­car Reyes and Spec­trum pres­i­dent Jose Rainier Reyes.
