German-based photovoltaic solution and service provider Conergy has entered into an agreement with Monte Solar Energy, a joint venture between AC Energy Holdings and Bronzeoak Philippines to put up an 18 megawatt (MWp) solar power plant in Bais, Negros Occidental.
Under the agreement, Conergy will design and engineer the construction of the plant. Located in Bais, the solar farm will occupy a land area of 213,292m2.
Conergy will be also responsible for component procurement and project management of the new plant.
The plant is expected to generate 24,205 MW hours of electricity annually based on its design â€“ a sufficient power to supply the equivalent of 10,085 households in the region.
Â “MonteSol is the latest in Bronzeoak’s development portfolio of 202MW of solar projects now in operation or under construction. We are delighted to be working once again with Conergy to deliver the timely completion of this new project, which is now part of Bronzeoak’s new partnership with AC Energy,â€ Monte Solar Energy president Jose Maria P. Zabaleta said.
The project is expected to curb 14,838t of carbon emissions (CO2) every year.
“This is our first project with the Ayala Group and our third with Bronzeoak Philippines, with whom we are delighted to collaborate with on this solar project. We are grateful to be part of the growing number of solar projects in Negros that have collectively supported the region’s development by supplying it with clean, reliable and sustainable energy,â€ Conergy Asia & Middle East President Alexander Lenz said.
The construction is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter next year.
Conergy has also constructed the 45 MW San Carlos Solar plant, which is currently the largest operational solar plant in the Philippines.
