Sale of solar power to
Visayas grid starts

The first commercial scale solar plant in the Philippines in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, began selling power to the Visayas grid yesterday, Jose Maria Zabaleta Sr., San Carlos Solar Energy Inc. chairman, said.

Zabaleta said the SACASOL solar plant at the San Carlos Ecozone in San Carlos City began selling 13 megawatts to the grid, and will sell 9 more by the end of the month.

SACASOL will deliver power to the grid during peak hours displacing more expensive diesel and bunker generated electricity, which will help bring down the average cost of power rates to consumers, he said.moremoremore
