Verdant Solar, a leading solar energy company, has been recognised as one of the largest residential solar providers in the country, with over a thousand homes in Malaysia choosing Verdant Solar as their residential solar energy provider. The company has also been named the nation's Most Solar Provider System Home Installations in a Year by the Malaysia Book of Records.
Although solar power has always been available, few Malaysians understand its many benefits to the environment, the economy, and the future. As utility prices across the country continue to rise, Zeth Lim, Chief Executive Officer of Verdant Solar, comments on the Malaysian-based company's goal to be a pioneer in making solar power more accessible and affordable to residential homeowners.
“With this achievement in the Malaysian Book of Records, we hope to further the transition of the Malaysian energy industry away from traditional fossil fuels and towards a more sustainable future, which has been our goal from the very beginning.”
“We are dedicated to helping Malaysia reach its goal of 31 percent renewable energy by 2025, set by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (MESTECC). Although we recognise we still have a long way to go, we see this as the beginning of a strong rise of technologies in the renewable energy industry that will allow us to reach more homeowners in Malaysia,” he adds.
Since its inception in 2013, Verdant Solar has offered environmentally conscious consumers world-class solar solutions. In accordance with Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 11 and 13 of the United Nations, Verdant Solar aims to make the world greener and a better place to live by contributing to the development of sustainable cities and communities to mitigate climate action.
As of the year 2022, Verdant Solar's solar solution in Malaysia has saved over an annual of RM 6.9 million on electricity costs. Verdant Solar anticipates that the total solar PV installed capacity in Malaysia will reach up to 3,322MWp by 2023, thereby achieving their objective of making the world a better place through renewable energy.
