An Innovative Leap: Shopwise Cebu Switches to Solar


Rustan Supercenters Inc. announced the installation of a rooftop solar PV system at Shopwise Cebu in Barangay Basak, as part of its commitment to green initiatives and energy saving measures. The 576 kilowatt peak system which was commissioned into operation by Solenergy Systems Inc. last October 2018, 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. Attached at the roof are 1,920 pieces monocrystalline PERC solar modules from DMEGC Solar and transformerless power inverters from Austria-based Fronius International GmbH.


As chosen EPC (engineering-procurement-construction) provider, Solenergy ensured to provide a world-class energy solution by using only tier 1 components and adhering to international design and installation standards. Furthermore, Solenergy holds responsibility to operate and maintain the solar array calculated to equivalently energize 13,677 homes over the course of the system’s lifetime.

Solenergy’s high system standards, coupled with a proactive after-sales service, manifests a philosophy of strong client relationship that rivals the lifetime of the durable systems they provide. With this, Shopwise Basak, Cebu City looks forward to a quarter-century of green technology powering its customer’s shopping experience.
