Largest commercial rooftop PV plant powered in Philippines


Robinsons Starmills shopping mall in San Fernando, the province of Pampanga is now powered by its own 2.9 MW solar array. According to Robinsons Land, the owner of the mall, this PV plant is the biggest private solar facility installed for self-consumption in Philippines.

Robinsons Land company has several PV plants installed atop its other shops across the country. At the end of March, the company announced six solar projects under development, which it expected to complete by May, and two other in a pipeline, scheduled to be powered by the end of the year.

In total, the company is planning to install ten rooftop solar plants totaling 12.5 MW on its shopping malls across the country by the end of the year. According to the press release, all ten PV projects combined will generate nearly 16 million kW/h of clean energy, saving 8,760 tons of CO2 emissions annually. This would be equivalent to planting 223,965 full grown trees, the company says.

Once completed, ten solar plants will supply about 30% of the electricity required by the shopping malls. RLC president Frederick Go said in the announcement that the company is aiming to eventually install solar power facilities in all of its 41 malls.
