SP New Energy Corporation brings ‘newest’ solar technology to the Philippines

The solar farm project in Nueva Ecija will have a capacity of 500 megawatts to address the power needs of 1.5 million Filipinos.

SP New Energy Corporation (SPNEC) is bringing the “newest” technology to its 500-megawatt solar farm project in Nueva Ecija.

This is the third solar project under the company, following the 63.3-MW solar farm in Calatagan, Batangas in 2016, and the 150-MW solar farm in Concepcion, Tarlac in 2019.

Holger Schenk, who heads Engineering, Procurement, and Construction at Solar Philippines, said the technology used in the Calatagan solar farm is “quite old,” whilst the solar technology used in the Tarlac farm was sourced in-house.

“[The Nueva Ecija solar farm] has high, high-efficiency solar modules and the newest technology in terms of the electronics and the control that we are using,” Schenk revealed. “It’s the latest tech that we’re using right now in the plant. It delivers green electricity 100% renewable power.

This is in line with SPNEC’s overall strategy to build a 100% renewable electricity future for the Philippines.
