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.
