Conergy Completes 201 MW of Solar Parks in the Philippines.

A leading German photovoltaic (PV) solution and service provider Conergy disclosed in 2015 that it had won 201 MWp of solar projects in the Philippines.

All 201 MWp were connected to the grid prior to the March 15 deadline set by the Department of Energy (DOE), a prerequisite for solar projects seeking to qualify for incentives under the current feed-in-tariff (FIT) scheme.

As a result, the company has now completed a total of 274 MWp of solar projects in the Asian country, being the equivalent to more than half the current 500-MWp FiT quota for photovoltaics (PV).

The table below gives more details about the latest Conergy solar parks connected to the Philippine grid.

Location Capacity
Tarlac, Luzon 50 MWp
Pampanga, Luzon 13 MWp
Bulacan, Luzon 15 MWp
Bataan, Luzon 18 MWp
La Carlota, Negros 14 MWp
Manapla, Negros 48 MWp
Bais, Negros 18 MWp
Silay, Negros 25 MWp

Conergy, together with its local partners, was able to add 201 MWp of clean electricity capacity to the grid, further strengthening its position as the leader of solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services in the Philippines.

EPC Asia vice president Hendrik Bohne said, “Conergy is keenly aware that in regulated energy markets, solar energy can only be made available on a mass scale through the support of government and the investment and vision of energy providers. If this trend we see in the Philippines continues, the country will soon catch up with the rest of its regional neighbors in choosing to power with renewable energy.”
