21.46 kWp Manila, Philippines, 2014

This project is a rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) installation with a capacity of 21.46 kWp realised by WEnergy Global Pte Ltd. The rooftop solar PV station is mounted on the rooftop of a five-storey office building in Taguig, adjacent to the Bonifacio Global City in Metro Manila, Philippines. The installation incorporates eight-five (85) photovoltaic panels and four grid-tied inverters for own consumption and when needed allowing for excess electricity to be fed back into the national grid. With a grid-tied inverter the rooftop solar PV station is grid interactive.
The system generates about 28,800 kWh per year. The project enables the owner to save a minimum of PHP 300,000 a year on its electricity bill and to reduce a total of about 20 tons of CO2 emissions per year at the same time. These carbon emission reductions are equivalent to burning 8,400 litres gasoline less per year and carbon sequestration by 6 hectares of forests, more than four soccer fields, in one year.
