As one of our long-term sustainability goals is to meet the preliminary target of 50MWp renewable energy capacity by 2030, the Group, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, ComfortDelGro Engineering Pte Ltd (CDGE), formed a solar power joint venture company with ENGIE South East Asia (ENGIE) on 30 November 2021. The Solar JV - ComfortDelGro ENGIE Solar Pte Ltd - will look into supporting the electrification of the Group's fleet of vehicles and offer fast charging solutions to our drivers as well as public EV users. Upon obtaining regulatory approvals, The Solar JV will aim to kickstart installation and operation of rooftop solar panels atop three of the Group’s buildings at Loyang, Pandan and Ubi by end-2022.
Apart from upcoming installation plans, the Group has previously worked with Partners to install solar premises at SBS Transit’s Ulu Pandan Bus Depot, which houses 470 buses, and has more than 2,000 solar panels generating about 2,500kWh of electricity per day.
On 26 May 2022, ComfortDelGro Driving Centre announced that they were also reducing its carbon footprint by tapping on solar power as an energy source for its premises. It has installed 290 solar panels on the rooftop of its Centre, which will result in a savings of 30% of its monthly electricity bills.
