Freyabadi has been a market leader in South East Asia's chocolate manufacturing industry for over 25 years, and the company was looking for a clean energy solution that will help with its sustainability target. As a part of Fuji Oil Holdings, the installation of solar panels aligns with Fuji Oil's 2030 goal of reducing its total CO2 emissions by 40 percent, supporting the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
With 2,128 panels installed on 5,400 sqm of the factory's rooftop, the PV system has a capacity of 1,138 kWp and will generate around 1,643 Megawatt-hours (MWh) of renewable electricity annually.
Arfiyanto Adisastra, Director of PT Freyabadi Indotama, states that the company will significantly increase cost savings and reduce its carbon footprint, with an estimate of 1,306 tons of CO2 emissions avoided annually, comparable to removing 282 cars from the road or planting 21,760 trees annually.
"We are delighted to partner with TotalEnergies, in the hope of bringing a positive impact to the environment, which is part of Freyabadi's commitment to sustainability. As the largest chocolate manufacturer in Indonesia, we hope that those efforts will inspire other companies to also do their part in preserving the environment," said Adisastra.
With a strong commitment to conducting business responsibly, Freyabadi chose TotalEnergies, known for its technical expertise in deploying renewable energy solutions around the world. Under the agreement, TotalEnergies will install and operate the photovoltaic (PV) solar system for 20 years while Freyabadi will pay based on the performance of the system.
Gavin Adda, Head of TotalEnergies Renewables Distributed Generation Asia said, "As the leading provider of solar solutions in the region, we are honored to be trusted by Freyabadi to deliver cost savings and reduce carbon footprint. TotalEnergies provides its customers peace of mind from a technical, financial and commercial perspective. We are committed to being a long-term energy partner for Freyabadi."
