The vision to develop Ipoh as a low carbon city continues to be realised via renewable energy usage initiatives.
Recently, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by Majuperak Holdings Berhad (Majuperak) via its subsidiary, Majuperak United Solar JV Sdn Bhd (MUJV) and Ipoh City Council (MBI) at a ceremony at Kinta Riverfront Hotel.
The MoU is to enable strategic cooperation between the two parties for the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels at one of MBI’s infrastructure, the Amanjaya poultry market.
It is in line with the launch of MBI’s Strategic Planning Plan, Ipoh Low Carbon City, Walkable City and ‘Bandar Raya Bestari Sejahtera’ 2030 in cooperation with various parties.
MUJV will also help to develop solar rooftop carports as a solution for rooftop parking sites with no roof.
The proposal for the PV solar system installation with a capacity of 151 kW is subsidised fully by MUJV under the Supply Agreement Of Renewable Energy (SARE) which is able to reduce carbon emission.
The renewable energy is also set to save a total of RM2 million overall for MBI.
