BANGKOK – February 23, 2024: Mitsubishi Motors Thailand has continuously handed over solar panel system under its ‘Solar for Lives’ project to Ban Rai Hospital, Uthai Thani. So far, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand has installed the solar power systems to a total of eight community hospitals with over THB 12 million budget on 400-kilowatt clean energy provision, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by more than 240 tons per year.

Mr. Masaki Shimoda, Vice President, Finance & Accounting Unit Business Controlling Division of Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd. said, “Solar for Lives is an initiative in line with Mitsubishi Motors Thailand’s commitment and CSR direction ‘To Contribute and Grow with Thai Society’ under its three main pillars – Education, Environment and Health. Our goal for putting solar panel systems in community hospitals across Thailand is to increase the availability of good healthcare services to Thai people. This project can create sustainable energy sources for hospitals, and promote the government's strategic goals to bring Thailand towards a carbon-neutral society. We expect to invest THB 60 million in solar panel systems installation and maintenance for 40 community hospitals within 10 years. For Ban Rai Hospital, the project is expected to reduce the hospital’s carbon dioxide emissions by more than 30 tons per year.”

Dr. Wichan Panthong, Ban Rai Hospital Director said, “Mitsubishi Motors Thailand’s contribution has helped reduce power costs for our hospital. We can channel funds to other important areas of our operations, and that will heighten the level of service and medical care we can impart to the community. Equally important, it aligns us with the mainstream direction of sustainability and carbon-neutrality.”

Dr. Danai Pitakannop, Uthai Thani Provincial Chief Medical Director said, “On behalf of the Ministry of Public Health, one of the ’Solar for Lives’ project’s partners, I reckon this project as the significant collaboration between government agencies and private sector organization to promote clean energy consumption that can bring about a reduction in electricity expenses by up to THB 400,000 per hospital per year, in addition to reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Mitsubishi Motors Thailand is such a role model to play an important role to support the Ministry of Public Health as the government agency to serve our community for better quality of life and sustainable society development.”

Mr. Teerasak Rattana, Ban Rai District Chief, Uthai Thani Province added, “Thailand’s long-term goal is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Meanwhile, it also aims for a 30-percent reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) by 2030, and net-zero GHG emissions by 2065. These goals can only be achieved if there are collective efforts from everyone, whether as an individual or an organization. Thanks to Mitsubishi Motors Thailand, for furthering our efforts towards a more sustainable and carbon-free future, and bringing sustainability and clean energy to our community.”
