Mr. Tirachart Chiracharasporn, KLeasing Managing Director said, “Guided by our GO GREEN Together’ policy encouraging all Thais to take collaborative action in saving our planet, KLeasing has launched a special campaign for customers who purchase a new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Under the new criteria, such customers who have applied for an auto loan for new car with KLeasing will get a special interest rate at 1.95 percent, plus other privileges per the new criteria of the Office of Consumer Protection Board (OCP), without having to wait until January 10, 2023, when they come into force. Eligible customers will get a step-up discount upon their prepayment to close their account before the loan is due, based on the number of installments for which the loan has been repaid. Under the promotion, if the number of paid installments is less than one-third of the installment payment plan, the car buyer will be eligible for a 60-percent discount. If the number of paid installments exceeds one-third of the installment payment plan, the car buyer will get a 70-percent discount.

Mr. Dayin Kiatkwankul, Head of SCG Home Consumer Solution Development, SCG said, “SCG has been trying to fully promote environmentally friendly goods and services, especially clean energy, like ‘SCG Solar Roof Solution’. It, therefore, developed solutions to meet needs of customers, whose styles of use of electricity at home have been different. These solutions range from “On-Grid System” solar roofs which suites households that mainly used electricity in daytime and “Hybrid System” solar roofs, which are able to retain electricity for use in both daytime and night time and, thereby, responded to households that used electricity all the time. The roofs come with an application which monitors electricity usage, electricity production and electricity costs in real time. This has been an escalation in quality of home living to be ‘Smart Living’ through incorporation of technology into habitation.”
The Dendo Drive House technology developed by Mitsubishi Motors is an innovative energy ecosystem that can generate, store and share energy by utilizing solar power. The system consists of the battery of a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), a bi-directional charger, solar panels, and an Energy Storage System (ESS). The ESS is a storage battery designed for home use.
The technology allows Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV drivers to charge their vehicles at grid power and to supply electricity from their vehicles to the home. Apart from saving fuel costs, Dendo Drive House also offers homeowners the opportunity for cost savings in their electricity bills by using left-over electricity in the ESS and the vehicle’s battery. It also serves as a reliable source of backup power in the case of an emergency or power outage.
