Comin Khmere: Paving the Way for Solar Energy in Cambodia
January 12th 2018, Phnom Penh – The price of electricity in Cambodia remains one of the highest in the world, averaging at 20 cent/kWh. Meanwhile, solar technology is becoming more reliable and affordable than ever. As a result, the solar market will continue growing and will see an enormous increase in commercial and industrial projects in addition to utility scale projects (solar farms).
Comin Khmere has maintained its strong leading position in the solar industry for years, offering a variety of photovoltaic grid-tied solar energy systems in a range of sizes with a focus on industrial and commercial projects. These systems can generate up to 30% of the end user’s energy needs and provide a steady, cost-efficient energy source.
As more industries turn to alternative energy sources, our installation capacity grew over 30% in 2017, with a majority of our projects installed in Phnom Penh. We’ve run several exciting and large-scale projects with clients such as Coca Cola, International School of Phnom Penh, US Embassy and ISI Steel, to name a fewâ€, said Michael Freeman, Regional Business Development Division Manager.
At the end of 2017, Comin Khmere installed a total capacity of 6.4 MWp, generating 27 MWh per day and circumventing the equivalent of 1 ton of CO2 per month.
With electricity being one of the biggest expenses in the industrial sector, using an alternative clean source of energy is necessary to remain competitive in the region. Comin Khmere sees great potential in the renewable energy industry and is proud to provide customers with their energy needs.
