ENFINITY Philippines Renewable Sources Inc. is developing a P3.6 billion solar energy project in Concepcion, Tarlac.
According to Enfinity Philippines, this will be the largest and most advanced state-of-the-art solar farm in Luzon.
The Concepcion Solar Power Project has a rated capacity of 50.55 megawatts (MW) over an area of 54.8 hectares.
The solar power plant will be directly connected to the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) in Sta. Rosa, Concepcion, Tarlac.
Enfinity aims to construct solar projects in the country that will generate over 100 MW by early 2016.
The Concepcion project, it added, is among those that have been awarded renewable energy service contracts by the Department of Energy in late 2014.
Across the country, Enfinity’s other solar projects under way are at Clark Development Corp. (CDC), Pampanga (23 MW); in Digos, Davao del Sur (phase 1, 28 MW) and in Cavite (phase 1, 3 MW).
At Clark, Enfinity Philippines has begun initial site work in May this year and is set to pour some P1.5 billion for the construction, operation and maintenance of a solar plant at Clark Development Corp.
Enfinity leased about 25 hectares of property inside Clark Freeport to generate 23 MW of power.
The company has partnered with Imperial Homes Inc. to create Enfinity Imperial Solar Homes Inc. (EISHI) which has ventured into 24-hour solar-powered mass housing projects in Sto. Tomas, Batangas and Estancia in Legazpi, Bicol.
It has also partnered with Aboitizland and Visayas Electric Power Co. to provide similar solar power solutions to its residential customers.
Enfinity Philippines continues to develop utility scale solar farms around the country with over 500 MW of projects in its pipeline over the next five years.
