Conergy, a German photovoltaic solution and service provider, has recently signed a new Â contract withÂ RASLAG, the renewable energy generation arm of Angeles Power (API), to expandÂ a 10-megawatt solar power plant owned by the latter in Mexico, Pampanga.
The contract involves the addition of 13 megawatts of capacity to raise the total capacity of the RASLAG power plant to 23 megawatts.
â€œRASLAG Corp. experienced an exceptional partnership for its existing 10 MWp solar farm project and is glad to team up once again with Conergy for its 13 MWp solar farm expansion project. This project will add another step to our commitment for renewable and sustainable supply for future of generations to come,â€ said Engr. Peter G. Nepomuceno, President and General Manager of RASLAG Corp.
â€œConergy is eager to be working with RASLAG Corp. once again for the expansion of its existing solar facility in Pampanga. This is another step forward as we realize our collective vision of powering the Philippines with clean and reliable renewable energy,â€ said Alexander Lenz, President, Conergy Asia & Middle East.
â€œOur teams are working closely on the ground to ensure that the best photovoltaic systems and solutions are delivered to RASLAG. The Philippines has the advantage of high and predictable levels of sunlight, making it ideal for the development of high quality solar energy plants that can fuel more homes and businesses and also provide access to more affordable and stable sources of electricity,â€ Lenz added.
RASLAG power plant currently occupies an area of 129,438 square meters. With the 133,772 square meter extension, the total plant size will stand at 263,210 square meters.
The expansion will produce 19,438 megawatt hours per year, which can supply to about 11,700 households, saving 14,300 tons of carbon emission every year.
