Biotechjp taps solar power

- Lenie Lectura

EEI Power Corp., a subsidiary of Yuchengco-led EEI Corp., has completed the installati­on of an 83.2-kwp solar rooftop system at Biotechjp’s facility in Tarlac.

It said Tuesday that the solar rooftop facility will provide more than 3,000,000 kilowatt hour (kwh) of clean energy for up to 25 years with an estimated savings in power bills of about P17 million for the same period. This would be equivalent to around 37,000 newly planted trees and 1,264,200 metric tons of carbon emission avoided.

The solar rooftop system includes 188 units of 455Wp Jinko monocrysta­lline solar panels and 1 x 80KVA Growatt inverter. This system is the initial phase of a total 190kwp system that can fit the available roof space of Biotechjp. The remaining system components are expected to be installed next year in time for the full operation of the Tarlac facility.
