In March 2020, Indonesian coal miner SESM signed a 20-year power supply contract with palm oil planter PT Golden Blossom for 10.5 MW off-grid solar power plant (see Indonesian Coal Miner To Build 10.5 MW Solar Plant).
Recently, Cleantech Solar completed a 2.4 MW installation in another Southeast Asian nation Thailand for US food producer Cargill to supply it over 3,000 MWh solar energy annually (see US Food Producer Goes For Solar Power In Thailand).
