Renewable energy

HAECO Hong Kong has recently announced the largest solar project to date in Hong Kong, in partnership with EcoSmart Energy. EcoSmart will construct a solar photovoltaic system with a total capacity of three megawatts (MW) on the roof of HAECO’s facility at Hong Kong International Airport. The system will consist of approximately 6,000 solar panels and its annual output will be 2,877,321 kWh -equivalent to the electricity consumed by 631 average Hong Kong households. It is estimated that approximately 1,064,609 kilograms of carbon emissions will be saved each year, which is equivalent to planting 48,795 trees. The project is expected to be completed in April, marking an important milestone on the company’s journey towards net zero carbon emissions.


HAECO Hong Kong and EcoSmart are committed to the use of renewable energy and hope the project will help promote the benefits of installing solar panels on idle rooftops to other companies and institutions in Hong Kong. Surplus power generated by the HAECO system will be sold to the power companies under the SAR Government’s “Feed-in Tariff” scheme and part of the income will be used to support World Wide Fund For Nature Hong Kong. By implementing this major new initiative, HAECO is proud to be playing its part in combatting climate change in Hong Kong.
