The country’s number one solar provider and Southeast Asia’s largest developer of rooftop power plants, Solar Philippines, has broken ground for its new venture of solar farm in the 75 hectare land of Calatagan, Batangas.

Solar Philippines launched the construction of a 50 MW solar park. The company officials described it as the largest of its kind in Luzon.

The system will comprise over 150,000 solar panels. It is expected to generate enough energy to power the majority of the entire province, and in three decades can offset over a million tons of carbon dioxide, equivalent to planting over 5 million trees.

“This is the first of many solar farms that we shall launch this year. We are in discussions with landowners across Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao,” said Leandro Leviste, Solar Philippines president, said.

“Taking the same approach as for out rooftop projects we’ve integrated development, financing, and construction all-in-one, allowing us to move faster in meeting the Department of Energy’s solar targets for 2015.”

The company plans to complete no less than 200 MW in 2015. They have also secured over a dozen Renewable Energy Service Contracts to develop projects near major cities across the country.
