Phoenix Solar Philippines Inc. has been awarded a contract to build 4 commercial photovoltaic rooftop systems on behalf of Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC). The total capacity of the four new systems will amount to 3.04MW.
Phoenix Solar Philippines is in charge of design, procurement and construction of the four rooftops. Three of the solar systems will be installed on malls in the Visayas region (one in Jaro, Western Visayas, and two in Cebu, Central Visayas), the fourth one in Tagum City, Mindanao. They are all designed for own use only and will be able to cover a significant part of the malls' consumption during day time. Completion and commissioning are scheduled for end of June, 2017.
"Throughout the Philippines, RLC operates 44 malls - and with Robinsons Malls’ commitment to preserving the environment and reducing its carbon footprint, we are determined to continue with installing solar panels covering a large portion of our energy requirements," Frederick Go, President at Robinsons Land Corporation, noted. "To cooperate with Phoenix Solar in pursuing this strategy in 2016 was a positive experience which we are delighted to repeat in 2017."
Eric Fleckten, General Manager of Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd and Vice President Asia/Pacific at Phoenix Solar AG, added: "We are proud of being awarded no less than four new rooftop systems by such an esteemed customer as Robinsons Land Corporation. And we are happy to support their ambitious renewable energy goals by providing them high quality solar photovoltaic systems on time and on budget. This renewed cooperation is a token of the opportunities and the market potential we are addressing now in the Philippines and in the entire region."
