Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Company Limited (HAECO Group) and EcoSmart Energy announced the official launch of the largest solar project in Hong Kong, pursuant to which EcoSmart will invest in the construction of a solar photovoltaic system with a total capacity of 3 megawatt (MW) on the rooftop of HAECO’s aircraft maintenance hangar No. 2 and 3 at the Hong Kong International Airport. The system consisted of a total of approximately 6,000 solar panels and its annual output of electricity is 2,877,321 kWh (equivalent to the electricity consumption of 631 Hong Kong households). It is estimated that approximately 1,064,609 kilograms of carbon emission (equivalent to planting 48,795 trees) can be effectively reduced per year.
The project is expected to be completed in April 2022, marking an important milestone in the sustainable development of the aviation industry. HAECO and EcoSmart hope to take this feat to fulfill their corporate social responsibilities by committing to and encourage the use of renewable energy to promote sustainable development. The income from “feed-in tariff” can be utilised as tariff subsidies, and part of the proceeds is used to support the World Wide Fund For Nature Hong Kong, a partner of EcoSmart, for more companies and institutions in Hong Kong to understand the benefits of installing solar photovoltaic systems on idle rooftops, joining hands to reduce carbon emissions and cope with the climate change.Email Post to a Friend
