World’s Largest Solar-powered Facility Inaugurated In CSF [ Wednesday, 1st of June 2016 | 2 years ago ]
This mall's solar-powered facility was made possible through Soloenergy Systems Inc. The facility has 10, 880 solar panels and covers 1.75 hectares of roof space. This is also the first of its kind investment in San Fernando.
The solar array will harness more than 2.88 Megawatts of power during peak hours, offsetting up to 95 percent of daytime demands of the mall.
For his part, Mayor EdSa commended Robinsons Starmills Corporation for helping the city government in promoting environmental programs.
“What we want in the city is progressive development without sacrificing the environment, and this move is the best example of this” he said.
Jeffrey Yutuc, Project Development Officer of the Investment Promotion Office, said that the city government may give tax incentives to business that operates facilities that are not harmful to the environment.
“Pwede po tayong magbigay ng as much as 10% discount sa mga kompanya na nagpapatupad ng eco-friendly measures.”
Frederick Go, Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) president, said that he was inspired with the city’s advocacy of protecting the environment thus this renewable energy equipment.
“This is our way of helping the government in saving the planet.”
