Today, Conergy announces 231MW of new solar project contracts signed in Southeast Asia. In total, the projects will power hundreds of thousands of homes and offset the Southeast Asia carbon footprint by hundreds of thousands of tons per year, equivalent to taking tens of thousands of cars off the road.
These new projects include over 200 in the Philippines: 62MW in Negros Island, 50MW in Tarlac, 13MW in Pampanga, 18MW in Bais Negros, 15MW in Bulacan and 43MW at two locations in Luzon and Visayas. These, combined with 30MW of new contracts signed in Thailand and Indonesia, brings Conergy's total new contracts confirmed in the past three months to 231MW for Southeast Asia.
In the Philippines, the largest project is a 62MW portfolio being built for Negros Island Solar Power, located in Negros Occidental. It consists of two sites — a 48MW and a 14MW — and will power approximately 40,000 homes. Another project, built for company Raslag, is 13MW and located in Pampanga, Philippines, adding to the 10MW plant Conergy previously built for Raslag. The final Philippine project is built for PetroSolar.
In Thailand, an 8MW project will be built in Sa Kaeo province. This project, which Conergy supplied with engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services, will be owned by B Grimm Power Ltd. Once completed, this project will supply power to over 5,300 homes. Conergy will also build three projects, totaling 19MW, in Prachinburi, Thailand. The project will be owned by Symbior Solar.
In Indonesia, Conergy is constructing three 1MW solar installations for three towns within the East Nusa Tenggara Province — Sumba, Ende and Maumere —, enough to power 35,000 homes.
"Southeast Asia is an ideal location for solar because of their year-round sunshine and abundance of space that is suitable for solar," said Andrew de Pass, CEO of Conergy. "At Conergy, everything we do is inspired by our mission to preserve the planet and power the world."
