Solarvest was founded in 2012 with the mission to change the way people consume energy and to create a world where clean energy is easily accessible to many. The Company was among the first batch of grid-tied solar power installation providers that has obtained the certification from SEDA (Sustainable Energy Development Authority), ISPQ (Institute for Sustainable Power Quality) and GCPV (Grid-Connected Solar Photovoltaic) in Malaysia.

Since then, the company has been advocating for solar energy adoption and has grown to be a leading solar turnkey engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (“EPCC”) service provider.

“Pathgreen” is one of the pioneers of Solar PV Service Provider with Full Fledged Operations & Maintenance Services in Malaysia.

Pathgreen was founded in 2011 and since then, Pathgreen has been successfully designed, installed and commissioned the first 6.5MWp rooftop solar PV projects in 2012.

To date, Pathgreen has delivered approximately 20MWp timely commissioned commercial solar PV rooftop projects with the largest solar PV installation on one single roof of 3.5MWp in Shah Alam; commissioned in 2012 is generating approximately RM6,000,000 a year revenue under Feed-in Tariff Program.

Starting end of 2016, the Net Energy Metering (NEM) program comes in to allow businesses to use solar PV energy for self-consumption and any excess of solar PV energy to be exported to the grid and get electricity rebates to offset part of the electricity bill.

The top pulling factor for businesses to invest in solar PV installation is the available Green Investment Tax Allowance (GITA) under MIDA. This tax incentive enables the solar PV system owners to deduct their corporate tax payable on top of the Capital Allowance (CA). With the availability of these tax-friendly policies, the payback period becomes shorter.

Pathgreen undertakes the complete end-to-end works related to solar PV projects from submission of the application of GITA to the construction and commissioning of the solar PV project.

Pathgreen’s main attribute as the one-stop center solar PV service provider is managing the risk of fire & safety using the latest solar PV SafeDC technology in compliance of NEC 2017 standard; thus providing peace-of-mind to solar PV system owners, For the past 9 years, Pathgreen pride ourselves as the rooftop solar PV specialist company; not only as of the rooftop solar PV installer but also maintaining the rooftop solar PV plant at its excellence.

Pathgreen is also an award-winning solar PV provider with an Award of Commendation from ACEM in 2013 and Best Practices in Renewable Energy Projects from the Asian Centre for Energy in 2014.
