Conergy is building two new solar power plants in the Philippines totalling 41MW.
The facilities will be built on the island of Negros for San Carlos Solar Energy, a joint venture between ThomasLloyd and Bronzeoak Philippines.
They are expected to be hooked up to the grid in June 2015. The first project, SaCaSol 1 C/D, will expand on the Philippine’s first large solar plant, increasing capacity from 23MW to 45MW.
The second plant, SaCaSol 2 A, will be a new 18MW site close to La Carlota City.
Conergy Asia and Middle East president Alexander Lenz said: “These two additional projects with SaCaSol, which triple their solar energy capacity, not only underscore solar’s growing acceptance and strong momentum in the country but also demonstrate the improving economics of solar in the Philippines.”The new projects take Conergy’s total contracted volume in the Asian market up to 73MW.
