Wilcon Depot, the giant retailer of home improvement and construction supply in the country, eyes to lead the way to a greener future and integrates into sustainable business operations through investing in solar installation—one of the cleanest and abundant renewable energy sources.

Wilcon Depot has installed solar power systems in half of its store network to supplement its daily energy usage. Its more recent project equipped the General Santos City branch with a Solar Photovoltaic (PV) system. The newly installed 1,200 units of solar panels can help reduce up to 259,000kg of carbon footprint every year.
