The solar energy project under the ESCO model at SC VivoCity Shopping Center, invested in by ACCV and the EPC Contractor of Green Electric Investment Joint Stock Company, began on October 21, 2021. This solar energy system, with a total capacity of 754.53 kWp, can provide enough electricity for shopping centers to use during peak hours.
The system consists of 1410 PV panels with a capacity of 535 W, 7 inverters (Inverter) with a capacity of 82.8kW, and a DC Optimizer system that monitors each module level (Module), increasing efficiency by more than 25% when the panels are partially shaded, optimizing system efficiency up to 99.5 percent, and ensuring fire protection standards. The expected power output of 1050GWh/year contributes to environmental protection by reducing emissions by 830 tons of CO2/year across the country. Furthermore, with a large number of solar panels covering the entire roof of the center, the roof temperature is reduced by 3-5 degrees Celsius, reducing the amount of electricity consumed for cooling inside the shopping center.
This is a very important project in terms of producing clean green energy from sunlight, limiting the emission of harmful gases into the atmosphere, contributing to environmental protection, and saving costs National Electricity.
The project is scheduled to be completed and operational in December 2021.
