The 100 MW Solar PV Power Plant project in Isabela is expected to help reduce the current electricity shortage in the Philippines. In May 27 2015, the service contract of the largest solar PV power plant in the country has been approved by the Department of Energy. A twenty-five (25) year service contract was signed between Living Project 4 People Philippines Inc. (LP4PP), an international holding company, and the country’s DOE. This will start the process of completion of development, installation, construction, commissioning and operation of a 100 MW Solar PV Project in Ilagan City, Isabela. LP4PP President and CEO Ruth Briones said that the project will be constructed in 10 phases, to install 10 MW for each phase. The construction will start in August. The project is said to be a pure solar PV Grid-connected installation and will be sold directly to the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) under the Feed-in tariff of the RE law. According to Briones, the 100 MW Solar PV project will help reduce the current shortage in electricity that causes regular blackouts that results to industry closures as well as inconvenience to the consumers.
