Negros Island Solar Power
Philippines Solar - Carbon Offset
The Negros Island Solar Power Project involves the installation of 32MW La Carlota Solar Power PV Plant and 48MW Manapla Solar Power Plant. The purpose of the project activity is to generate power using renewable solar energy and intended to provide daytime power to the grid throughout the year.The project activity is located on Negros Island, within the Cebu-Negros-Panay sub-grid of the Visayas electricity grid.
The Philippines produces most of its energy using fossil fuels, and this project is one of the first in a new generation of renewable energy projects that seek to reduce the countries reliance on imported fuel that is damaging the environment. The project is expected to offset 66,039 tCO2e per annum.
The project team strongly believe in creating sustainable energy solutions that will benefit communities and future generations as well. Through their community engagement activities with the local government of La Carlota and Manapla, they have supported several initiatives including tree planting, water well, communal toilet facilities and blood letting facilities.
