Two new PV installations have officially commenced operations in the Philippines — a 50.7MW TSPP site near Tarlac City and a 6.23MW diesel replacement plant in Mindanao.
The 50MW PetroSolar TSPP 50 MWp PV Power Plant is set to generate 75,000 MWh of PV power annually — offsetting the emission of over 36,500 tonnes of CO2 per year.
The installation is expected to provide more than 24,000 homes with renewable electricity and is the largest PV power plant to date in the Philippines. The installation was developed around 90 km northeast of Manila, near the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway.
Mathias G. Kothe, founder and managing partner of Syntegra Solar, said: “The TSPP 50 MWp PV Power Plant excels on various levels, namely the highly competitive turn-key costs, a record-breaking time-line for turn-key installation as well as the time-line from initial project development to project completion / first power out, a superior quality of PV System Design and PV components utilized – all of which justifies to speak of a landmark installation in South-East Asia.”
