EEI, Sumitomo units team up for solar project in Tarlac

MANILA  -A unit of Yuchengco-led EEI Corp. has partnered with an electrical manufacturing company for the construction of a 1,008-kilowatt-peak solar rooftop system in Tarlac City in a bid to promote the use of clean energy in the country.

EEI Power Corp. (EEIPC), the power generation subsidiary of EEI Corp., said it recently signed a deal with International Wiring System (Phils) Corp. (IWSP) to build solar photovoltaic (PV) panels in one of the latter’s buildings.

IWSP is part of Japan-based Sumitomo Electric, which manufactures electrical wires and optical fiber cables.


According to EEIPC, the system will be composed of around 1,800 units of 500-watt monocrystalline solar PV panels that will provide at least 40 percent of the daytime load requirement of IWSP’s Building 6, and yield an annual average energy output of 1,296,675 kilowatt-hours (kWh).


Residential customers in the Philippines typically consume around 200 kWh a month.
The system is also expected to reduce IWSP’s carbon dioxide emissions by at least 598 metric tons a year, which EEIPC said was equivalent to saving 136,492 liters of gasoline annually.

“This partnership between EEIPC and IWSP serves as a testament to our shared vision of promoting sustainable energy and bolstering the growth of the renewable energy industry in the Philippines,” EEIPC general manager Salvador Salire Jr. said in a statement last week.

Apart from power generation, EEIPC is also engaged in retail electricity supply through its wholly owned subsidiary, EEI Energy Solutions Corp. INQ
