TRINA Solar Energy Development Pte. Ltd. has completed the delivery of more than 60,000 solar panels for PetroSolar Corp.’s Tarlac-2 solar farm.
In a statement on Monday, the company said 61,200 pieces of Trina Solar Tallmax TSM PD14 A model panels were delivered to the solar farm in Central Technopark, Tarlac City.
The panels, which were manufactured in Changzhou, China, have special reflecting film technology, which allows more light to be reflected back into the solar cell. This means the panels can absorb more energy and produce more electricity.
“The Philippine solar industry has tremendous room for development. We will continue to further expand our commitment to support renewable energy in the Philippines,” Trina Solar Philippines Country Manager Junrhey Castro said.
The Tarlac-2 project is a 20.4-megawatt (MW) solar power facility which is expected to be completed within the second quarter. It is located next to the Tarlac-1 Solar Plant.
PetroSolar is a joint venture of PetroGreen Energy Corp. (PGEC) and EEI Power Corp. PetroGreen is the renewable energy arm of publicly listed PetroEnergy Resources Corp.
