As rotating brownouts crippled Metro Manila, Solenergy was tapped by PetroSolar Corporation to engineer and install a 20MW Solar Plant that will energize the Luzon grid. The Solenergy installation crew worked tirelessly to erect the massive system, occasionally installing up to 2,000 panels a day. In effect, the plant began feeding renewable energy into the Luzon grid by April 2019, a mere 5 months after the go-signal to begin construction, in no time bolstering the critically-diminishing power reserves of the urbanized Philippine central region.

The rapidly-completed system comprises 61,200 PV panels and 612 power inverters, and is forecasted to generate 32,000,000kWh of clean energy every year, effectively avoiding 18.6 million kg of CO2 emissions annually. Over the course of the system’s lifetime, this is equivalent to planting over 2 million trees.
