Committed to its green initiatives and energy cost saving measures, supermarket operator Rustan Supercenters Inc. announced the installation of a rooftop solar PV system at Shopwise Basak, Cebu City. The 576 kilowatt peak system was commissioned into operation by Solenergy Systems Inc. last October 2018 and is now harnessing clean energy to power a considerable percentage of the hypermarket’s daily operations.
Shopwise Cebu’s PV system is forecasted to yield 827,000 kilowatt hours of solar energy every year, all of which will be consumed by the retail spaces underneath the two-story facility. 1,920 pieces monocrystalline PERC solar modules from DMEGC Solar are seamlessly attached at the roof, as well as utilizing an Austria-based technology of transformerless power inverters from Fronius International GmbH.
As chosen EPC (engineering-procurement-construction) provider, Solenergy designed the PV system using only tier 1 components, as well as adhered to international design and installation standards, thus providing a world-class energy solution. Beyond system commissioning, Solenergy furthermore holds responsibility for operate and maintain the solar array calculated to equivalently energize 13,677 homes over the course of the system’s lifetime.
