Total Petroleum Ghana Limited has converted its service station at Korle Bu into a solar-powered one.
The Total Group is committed to a global solar program and is aiming to equip 5,000 service stations with photovoltaic solar panels around the world.
he project is fully aligned with Total’s ambition to become the responsible energy major committed to developing solar power.
“The solar-powered stations represent Total’s commitment towards energizing communities and fostering sustainable development. It also illustrates the company’s dedication towards ensuring environmental sustainability, innovation, and premium customer service” said the Managing Director of Total Petroleum Ghana Limited, Eric Fanchini at launch of the project.
Since Total Petroleum Ghana Limited inaugurated its three solar-powered service stations, namely, TOTAL Tema Main Harbour, TOTAL Takoradi Airport Junction and TOTAL Miles 4 in Kumasi, it has been able to reduce its operation cost thus decreasing the pressure on the local grid and exploring the potential of solar energy.
The four solar-powered stations were constructed and maintained by local engineers and solar experts.
“As a responsible industrial player, Total takes action to develop new energies that are efficient and environmentally friendly, and it is our resolve to contribute to local development and environmental sustainability. This is equally central to the modernization of our service stations to bring convenience and quality products and services to customers” Eric Fanchini said.
