Solar PV panels now serve up to 22% of IPC plant's energy needs

Isuzu Philippines Corporation is inching closer to its goal of becoming an energy self-sufficient company. After introducing its Road to Progress vision in 2022, IPC has launched its solar photovoltaic (PV) project at its manufacturing plant in Biñan, Laguna

IPC started mounting the 1,100 solar PV panels on the roof of its manufacturing plant towards the last quarter of 2022. With a 500-kilowatt capacity, the solar PV panels have been successfully supplying up to 22% of the energy needs of the IPC facility. Combined with the renewable energy being sourced from Bataan Solar Plant since last year, Isuzu PH is able to reduce as much as 1,790 tons of CO2 emissions annually.

IPC envisions itself as a vital engine for the Philippine society towards a sustainable automotive chain, thus driving the company through an ESG perspective – Environment, Social and Governance. Several Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities had been accomplished last year and many are still in line for 2023 as part of fulfilling its social aspect.

Mr. Murakami kicked off the Road to Progress vision after taking over IPC Presidency in May 2022. Before transferring to his new designation in January 2023, he, together with IPC VP for Manufacturing – Yoshiki Yanai, were able to oversee the progress and the successful launching of the IPC Solar PV Project.

“As the global race to decarbonize accelerate, Isuzu Philippines is up to the challenge to prove that is and will always be “Your Responsible Partner”. With the launch of our Solar PV Project, we are taking a big step towards leading the industry on the road to sustainability,” said IPC President Noboru Murakami.
