generated on average annually, providing a clean alternate energy source

8. Decent work and economic growth

100 new jobs

created at plants, boosting local economies

11. Sustainable communities and cities

10 solar plants

operating with innovative solar technology, setting a standard for sustainable development

The Solution

Solar is poised to play a crucial role in Thailand’s clean energy transition. The Siam Solar Energy 1 project bundles 10 solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants across Kanchanaburi and Suphanburi Provinces in central Thailand. The solar PV systems are a cutting-edge, environmentally-sound technology with a capacity of approximately 10 MW per plant, and deliver generated electricity to the grid.

The Impact

This bundled project reduces Thailand’s reliance on imported energy and drives both national and regional economic growth. Aside from meeting the energy demands of regional Thai communities, the project improves local infrastructure and provides employment opportunities for local skilled and unskilled workers in manufacturing, installation, operation and maintenance of equipment.
