Conergy adds 13MW in Philippines

A Conergy plant
PV group Conergy has completed the 13MW phase-one of the Philippines’ first utility-scale solar plant, which will be expanded to its full 22MW in the coming months.

The array – near the port of San Carlos City, in the middle part of the 7,100-island archipelago nation – is owned by San Carlos Solar Energy.

It was financed by ThomasLloyd Group and developed by local firm Bronzeoak Philippines as part of a 50MW, three-year incentive scheme to attract investment in solar that launched when the Philippines’ government set a renewable target of 15GW by 2030.

Once complete, the plant will generate enough electricity in a year to power the equivalent of 13,000 local homes, Conergy said.
