2011

First Philec Solar Solutions (FPSS) recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ORDC for the construction of a solar power plant in Cavite. The FPSS solar power plant is projected to deliver 2 MW (megawatts) and is scalable to 5 MW in the coming years. FPSS’s 2MW power plant will be Luzon’s first ground-mount utility-scale solar installation. The plan is to register the project with the Department of Energy and have the power exported to the grid.

The first FPSS installation was at sister company First Philec Solar Corporation in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. This installation now supplies 75 kWp (kilowatt-peak) of electricity expanding to 200 kWp in the future. The ORDC project, the second for FPSS, is the company’s largest foray into solar installation.

Established in June 2010 as part of the Lopez group’s expanding base for renewable energy and solar technology, FPSS is working closely with the government to lessen the dependence of the Philippines on fossil fuels as energy source. High technology like solar power is seen by the government as the next step to promote independence on the energy source and to advance economic growth. FPSS’s vision is to become the leader in solar installations not only in the Philippines but also in the region.
