In the know: Solar Philippines

Solar Philippines is currently the country’s – and Southeast Asia’s – largest solar-energy company. Founded in August 2013 by Leandro Leviste, son of Senator Loren Legarda, the energy firm aims to deliver low-cost, reliable electricity to rural areas of the Philippines.

Since its inception, Solar Philippines has embarked on building some of the largest solar farms in the country. 

Among these is the 63-MW solar farm in Calatagan, Batangas, which according to the company has the capacity to supply the power needs of the entire western Batangas region.

In August 2017, Solar Philippines inaugurated its solar panel factory in Sto. Tomas, Batangas, the first of its kind in the country. 

The factory can produce a total of 2.5 million solar panels a year, establishing the Philippines as a player in the renewable energy revolution around the world.
