Coca-Cola installs solar panels


Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines Inc. (CCBPI), the bottling arm of Coca-Cola in the country, has partnered with Buskowitz Energy for the installation of around 10,000 solar panels in two of its bottling plants, including in Bacolod City, a press release from the company said.

The larger of the two installations, located in Misamis Oriental, will be made up of around 7,000 solar panels with a capacity of 2.8 megawatts, while the second facility in Bacolod will be made up of nearly 3,000 panels totaling 1.1 megawatts.

The project completion is set next month, and will further the company’s sustainability roadmap for its operations, the press release said.

Coca-Cola sources over 60 percent of its total energy requirements from renewable energy. Seven of its 19 manufacturing sites use renewable energy, particularly geothermal, and the installation of solar panels in Bacolod and Misamis Oriental will mark nine sites using green and clean energy by year-end, it said.

These efforts form part and parcel of Coca-Cola’s Cleaner Energy 2.0 initiative, the company’s comprehensive energy roadmap toward its goal of becoming best in class in energy use ratio and clean energy use in Southeast Asia by 2023. The roadmap is among the company’s anchors for continuously working on responsibly managing its environmental footprint and sustaining efforts to improve operational efficiencies across the value chain, the press release added.*
