Behn Meyer Successfully Installed Solar Power System in Its Warehouse Facility in TP6 Subang Jaya, Malaysia

At the outset of this decade, Behn Meyer has set long-term global goals to become more sustainable in terms of business growth, human rights and labour, environmental protection and procurement for our supply chain. As one of the efforts to achieve its net-zero goal by 2040, on 24 February 2023, Behn Meyer had successfully launched a solar power system in its warehouse facility in TP6 Subang Jaya, Malaysia. The session was inaugurated by Puan Rohaya Muhammad and Ms Lotta Kellinghusen on behalf of Behn Meyer's Management Board, as well as Mr Jack Tan and Mr Wesley Ho from Solarvest. 

The installation of Solar Photo Voltaic (PV) System aims to help Behn Meyer to utilise fewer fossil fuels, simultaneously reduces pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Behn Meyer Malaysia had installed 839 solar panels and four Huawei inverters over the course of three months with the collaboration of vendor Solarvest.

This system has a capacity of generating 457.255 kilowatts per hour at the peak of solar irradiance, and this green energy is capable of reducing approximately 469 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide produced annually by fossil fuels. 

Additionally, the solar system is equipped with a Net Metering system, allowing excess energy not consumed to be exported to the National Electrical Grid. By switching to renewable alternatives, we expect to save about 70% of our energy costs and reduce our reliance on depleting fossil fuels so we can protect the environment better. ​As a company committed to sustainability, we strive for more eco-, people-, and business-friendly initiatives to ensure a better future for all.
