ADB Supports Solar+Storage Projects to Bring 24H Electricity On Philippines Island

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) announced on Thursday the inauguration of a 50-kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system with the 273-kW energy storage unit bringing uninterrupted electricity supply to a rural community living on the Malalison Island in the Philippines. According to renewablesnow, the Malalison solar+storage system is a pilot project carried out by a private joint venture (JV) between Philippine utility Antique Electric Cooperative (ANTECO) and One Renewable Energy Enterprise, Inc (OREEI), a local solar company, with the ADB providing technical assistance. Previously, the island community relied on costly diesel-fueled generators, which supplied power for only four hours a day, leaving residents in the situation of limited economic opportunities. Now with the PV hybrid system installed, the Islanders will benefit from the solar power generated during the day and lithium-ion battery storage, while a 54-kW diesel generator will serve as support. --------------------***-------------------- Source:https://renewablesnow.com/news/adb-launches-50-kw-pv-plus-storage-plant-on-philippine-island-649560/ Photo:www.energy-storage.news ……………………………………. ‘All rights to go to the author of the news & image as mentioned above’ -------------------------------------------
