Conergy to build 25.88 MWp solar park in Japan
16 May 2016
Tarlac City, Philippines, 3 March 2016 – Conergy, a leading German photovoltaic (PV) solution and service provider and PetroSolar Corporation, a company owned by PetroGreen Energy Corporation (PetroGreen) and EEI Power Corporation (EEIPC), held the inauguration of the Tarlac Solar Power Project (TSPP).
In attendance during the inauguration ceremony held at the Central Technopark were former Senator Edgardo Angara, co-author of the Philippine Renewable Energy Act, PetroSolar officers and directors, and various stakeholders . During the event, Petrosolar and Conergy disclosed that the 50 Megawatts TSPP was synchronized to the Luzon grid and started delivery of power at 4:10PM on January 27, 2016.
Alexander Lenz, President, Conergy Asia & Pacific said, “The TSPP is the second solar farm that Conergy has executed in Luzon and our first with Petrosolar. We are proud to have been able to deliver this project in four and a half months, a record not only for our company but for solar farm execution in South East Asia in general. This result was made possible through Conergy’s extensive global and regional track record and the excellent working relationship with Petrosolar.”
The TSPP energy facility covers 55 hectares of industrial land within the PEZA-registered Central Technopark in Tarlac City. It has a plant-size of 550,003 square meters capable of producing 78,070 megawatt-hours per year and will provide clean energy to approximately 31,700 households, saving over 47,800 tons of carbon (CO2) emissions every year. The solar farm’s buy priligy online paypal electromechanical completion and successful testing and commissioning have also been validated by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Energy regulatory Commission (ERC).
PetroSolar President Milagros V. Reyes declared, “We made the right choice in teaming up with Conergy for the Tarlac Solar Power Project. When we decided to go into solar energy and to form PetroSolar, we knew that we had to select the right partners for our vision to have a greener Philippines. We are optimistic that the project will be granted the Feed-In-Tariff for solar projects by the DOE and the ERC as we were able to complete this facility within the prescribed time frame and comply with all the technical and regulatory requirements.”
Situated in the central plains of Luzon, Tarlac is highly favorable for PV development. The TSPP is also expected to perform very well as it utilizes the same solar solutions Conergy has deployed in its other projects in the country. To ensure the efficient operations and maintenance of the TSPP, Conergy is also providing technical and consultancy services to Petrosolar together with a local service contractor.
Lenz highlights, “In Conergy, we are driven by our mission to build communities that are less dependent in fossil fuels. We are proud to work with companies that share our mission such as Petrosolar, and we hope to further build on our track record as the leading downstream solar energy services company in the Philippines.”
