Recently, the construction of a total of 4.5MW of rooftop distributed photovoltaic plants for three shopping malls of the Philippine commercial giant SM Group, located in the Philippines, is nearing completion, with Grace Solar as the exclusive PV mounting provider for the project. SM Group is one of the largest shopping centre operators in Asia, with businesses in retail, shopping centre, banking and finance, property development, hotels and MICE. The successful cooperation between SM Group, as a commercial giant, and GraceSolar, as a leading PV mounting manufacturer, not only helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from shopping centre and improve energy efficiency, but also provides a firm foundation for GraceSolar to continue to expand into the large commercial and industrial distributed rooftop PV market.
With complex rooftop distributed PV scenarios and varying light resources, it is particularly important to match distributed PV solutions to different scenarios. The GS-BAPV system solution selected for this shopping centre roof project – the roof mounting system (ballast mounting) – is a new generation of commercial and industrial roof ballast mounting solution, which is based on the actual needs of the customer, combined with the environmental conditions of the project site, and incorporates outstanding technical advantages and successful case experience, and has six excellent properties: safety, reliability, economy, applicability, convenience and aesthetics.
In fact, the high wind speed in the Philippines requires high ballast stability of the roof, so the technical team upgraded and optimised the design to reduce the weight of the concrete piers and effectively fix the bracket system. Throughout the project, GraceSolar not only completed the supply of products quickly, but also arranged for a professional technical team to visit the construction site for service guidance, helping advance the project efficiently.
菲律宾SM集团总裁施汉生（Hans T. Sy）曾在声明中表示，“SM集团一直致力于减少旗下商场的温室气体排放，幷最大限度地提高能源利用率。”通过屋面分布式光伏发电来节能减排，生产绿色电力，这是目前各国千行百业都大力推行的新能源利用形式。国瑞能作为行业领先的太阳能光伏支架智造商，在融合经济高效、环境友好等层面持续提供工商业分布式太阳能光伏支架优质方案，持续推出定制化的行业专属零碳方案，构建千行百业零碳生态，用更创新的产品与更精准的服务，携手更多工商企业加速拥抱“零碳新时代”。
In a statement, Hans T. Sy, President of SM Philippines, said, “SM Group is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from its malls and maximising energy efficiency.” Energy saving and green power generation through roof-mounted distributed photovoltaic is a new form of energy use that is being promoted in every industry in every country. As a leading PV mounting manufacturer, GraceSolar continues to provide high-quality solutions for industrial and commercial distributed PV mounting in terms of economic efficiency and environmental friendliness, continues to launch customized industry-specific zero-carbon solutions, builds a zero-carbon ecology for all industries, and joins hands with more industrial and commercial enterprises to accelerate their embrace of the “new era of zero carbon” with more innovative products and more precise services. “
