CO2 (carbon dioxide) avoidance: +/- 638 tonnes annually

CO2 (carbon dioxide) equivalence in tree seedlings grown: +/- 1,552 trees annually


The solar system was fully commissioned in September 2023.

The solar project cost RM1,356,045 which is financed by internally generated funds and existing available hire-purchase facility.


Total tax savings which comprise tax incentive from Green Investment Tax Allowance and capital allowance claim is estimated to be RM565,440.


The return of investment is estimated to take 3 years.


Effects of the Solar Project


The solar project will not have any effect on the share capital nor on the substantial shareholders’ shareholdings of Hwa Tai.


The solar project will not have any effect on the earnings of Hwa Tai Group.


The solar project will not have any material effect on the net assets of Hwa Tai Group.

There are no liabilities expected to be assumed by Hwa Tai arising from the solar project.


Condition of the Solar Project
