Plus Xnergy deploys solar solutions for Boh Tea 

KUALA LUMPUR: Solar solution provider Plus Xnergy has deployed close to RM2 million of solar solutions for world-renowned tea grower Boh Tea at its facilities in Bukit Cheeding, Selangor and Cameron Highlands, Pahang.  

In April 2021, Plus Xnergy began its Phase 1 installation by powering up Boh's factory in Selangor while Phase 2 consisted of outfitting its tea factory in Cameron Highlands which is targeted to be completed by December 2022.  

With a heritage of over 90 years, Boh Tea is committed to be a fully sustainable tea grower and tea producer in the near future. 

Boh Tea is also among the few companies in the world which grow, process, pack and market their own brand of authentic highland tea.  

Plus Xnergy (group) chief executive officer Ko Chuan Zhen said it was a huge leap for the tea industry, especially one that was synonymous and intertwined with such heritage and history in Malaysia. 

"It is a fact to be known now that each cup of Boh Tea consumed, is also a step toward sustainability - given that it is powered by renewable energy.  

"Indeed a game changer, and we foresee this to create a greater impact amongst the food and beverage industry.  

"Offering clean energy solutions leave a positive impact to the environment, and also help businesses to operate more efficiently and responsibly.  

"We are focusing our efforts to reach out to as many  multinational companies with their commitment to align to the RE100 global community," he said in a statement today. 

Boh Plantations Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Jason Foo said sustainability had been a crucial focus in its overall operations. 

In 2013, Boh obtained the stringent myGAP certification by Malaysia's Ministry of Agriculture for four plantations which demonstrates good practices that address environmental, economic and social sustainability for all on-farm processes.   

"We are extremely pleased with immediate 33 per cent electricity savings from our Phase 1 installation at Bukit Cheeding, Selangor.  

"Once both our facilities are powered up, and over a span of 25 years, the positive environmental impact can be translated to about 500,000 trees planted and 11,000 tonnes in carbon emissions avoided," said Foo.
