Jollibee opens first solar-powered branch in Taytay

Jollibee Taytay Uptown is the first of its kind in the country as it opens as the first solar-powered branch in the popular fast-food franchise.

This breakthrough was made possible by the careful and meticulous planning of Jollibee Taytay Uptown’s franchisee Andrew Ng and managing director Brian Yu.

About 140 solar panels were successfully installed on the store’s roof deck, which generates an average output of 60-70kWh per day. This cuts back the branch’s monthly power consumption by 6percent. Ng and Yu both agree that by tapping into alternative energy, franchises can reduce power costs, as well as address growing environmental concern.

The addition of the solar panels as an alternative power source is just one of the many ways Jollibee has shown environmental-friendly efforts in their branches. Others include the use LED lights, biodegradable materials, and chiller-based air con systems.

Jollibee is now working closely with both Ng and Yu for a possible future of more solar-powered branches nationwide.
