Palawan will soon be home to the Philippines’ largest micro-grid solar power plant, generating 1.3 megawatts of clean renewable energy.
Costing PHP 325 million, the plant will have 5,000 solar panels that will provide power to over 600 customers, homes, businesses and hotels, in Puerto Princesa City’s Sabang district. It will also have a battery pack, the largest in the ASEAN region, that will release stored energy during heavy cloud cover or bad weather. This battery pack has a capacity of 3,600 kWh.
Unfortunately the plant will also be equipped with diesel generators that can produce 1 MW of electricity to provide nighttime power. Even if these machines will run on biodiesel in the near future, they produce noise and toxic gas. And one should not forget that biodiesel is made of crop that should not be burnt but feed hungry people.
