·1 min read

AC ENERGY (ACEN) continues to expand its renewables capacity in the Philippines with the start of construction of its 283 megawatt (MW) solar farm located in San Marcelino, Zambales.

The project will be the largest solar farm in the country, capable of producing over 421 gigawatt per hour of renewable energy per year and eliminating 287,796 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.

ACEN aims to help address the potential power shortages in the country as energy demand continues to grow, with project completion expected by the first half of 2023.

ACEN’s San Marcelino solar farm will feature the latest solar technologies such as east-west oriented panels and string inverters to capture solar radiation more efficiently.

The solar farm sits on approximately 300 hectares of unutilized land covered by lahar, effectively converting the area to a sustainable energy source, and has an expansion potential of up to 700 MW. (PR)
