PetroGreen Energy reaches milestone with completion of solar project development in Philippines

PetroGreen Energy Corporation (PGEC), a Yuchengco-led company, has achieved a significant milestone with the completion of site development for the 27MWdc Dagohoy Solar Power Project (DSPP) in San Vicente and Sta. Cruz, Dagohoy, Bohol.

Representing the first relatively large utility-scale solar power project in the province, the Php 1.2 Billion facility is poised to enhance indigenous power supply in Bohol, reducing reliance on imported power from Leyte and Cebu.

PGEC, a joint venture between PetroEnergy Resources Corp. (PERC) and Kyuden International Corp. (KIC), the overseas investment arm of Kyushu Electric Power Company, expressed gratitude for the seamless progress achieved.

Frederick B. Pizana, PGEC’s site engineer, credited the timely completion of major site development works to robust support from partner government agencies, host communities, and the local government unit of Dagohoy, led by Mayor Hermie Relampagos.

According to Pizana, “All the major site development works, prior to the installation of the solar panels and major electrical facilities, have been completed by our contractor, Media Construction and Development Corp.” He highlighted the collaborative efforts that enabled them to adhere to the schedule.

Maria Victoria M. Olivar, PGEC VP for Commercial Operations, outlined the next steps in the project. “By the second week of January 2024, our major contractors – Global Electric for the solar farm construction and Philcantech Enterprises for the electrical and grid connection – should be ready to start the power plant construction.” She expressed confidence in meeting commitments to the Department of Energy (DOE) and offtaker S.N.Aboitiz Power (SNAP) barring any unforeseen circumstances.
