RLC'S Renewable Energy: Mall Solar Facilities
RLC understands the value of energy management to promote sustainable growth for the organization and has embarked on a renewable energy program to install off-grid rooftop solar PV (photo voltaic) panels on feasible malls nationwide. This demonstrates RLC's commitment to help protect the environment from the adverse effects of carbon emissions and its aim to be an industry leader in efficient energy use alongside its other energy conservation and efficiency programs. RLC holds the record of having the world's largest solarpowered facility to be installed on a mall's roof for self-consumption.
To date, a total of 15,563 kWp are installed in 14 RLC projects located in Palawan, Iloilo, Dumaguete, Roxas, Antique, San Fernando Pampanga, Angeles Pampanga, Novaliches, Tacloban,Bacolod, Jaro, Tagum, Galleria Cebu and Cybergate Cebu. This is equivalent to 487,988 trees planted and 18,830 tons of carbon dioxide avoided, an increase of 84% versus last year. Plans to roll out more solar PV systems in both existing and future malls are underway
