Solar power in the Philippines is an especially prolific source of energy in the country due to the abundance of natural sunlight and heat. As a tropical country, that comes as no surprise. Lucky too, as that makes investing in solar energy a truly viable option; one that not every country in the world can enjoy to the fullest due to their differing climates.
As it stands, many have already adopted its use in their everyday operations. Check out some of the established solar energy spots that we at Solenergy have helped develop:
Currently holding the world record for the world’s largest mall solar power plant, Robinsons Starmills (located in San Fernando, Pampanga) will be able to generate up to 4 million kWh of energy in its first year of operating. This massive output’s positive impact on the Earth is comparable to the planting up to 100,000 trees or the offsetting of up to 2.25 million kg of CO2 in the atmosphere.
Robinsons Place Angeles
Another project from Robinsons Land Corp – we were once again contacted by them to install a 742kWp grid-tied system in Robinsons Place Angeles (located in Angeles City, Pampanga) that could supplement the site’s daily energy usage. It will have an annual yield of up to 978,000 kWh – equivalent to 1,647,257 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle.
Rockwell Land Corporation, true to its goal of going green, installed a 75kWp solar grid-tied system to their top floor. It will be able to generate a yearly yield of up to 94,247kWh of power – more than 1% of what the building needs in the same timeframe. This system will be able to offset 56,260kg of CO2 emissions – equivalent to 70,679 pounds of coal burned.
Salamangka Beach and Dive Resort
Solenergy developed a 37kWp off-grid system for Salamangka; the design aesthetically complemented the resort’s overall look whilst it also provided an uninterrupted supply of power to the establishment, thus minimizing the risk of their equipment breaking due to electrical fluctuations.
RASLAG Solar Plant Phase 2
Made up of 50,544 solar panels, this solar plant was able to export power to the gird within 13 weeks of construction – 4 whole weeks ahead of schedule. It will create 19,438 MWh of electricity annually, enough to power over 11,000 households.
To recap, solar power is used as an alternative source of renewable and clean energy. It harnesses the power of the sun and converts it into energy. It’s best used in large areas such as farms, malls, and other large establishment areas. People have been slowly adopting this type of renewable and sustainable energy source due to its inherent efficiency and convenience.
Not only will installing it help the environment by reducing carbon emissions, but it will also cut down costs as it is an investment that yields its returns in terms of utility.
