Panay Island opens its first solar power plant

Iloilo City, Philippines— Panay Island has finally opened its first ever solar power plant. The said pioneering Panay Island solar power plant of the Cosmo Solar Energy Inc. (CSEI) can be found Narat-an village in the town of Miag-ao, located in the southern part of Iloilo province.


The inauguration of the said solar plant was held last September 8, 2016. This P745-million solar power plant is housed in a 15-hectare land area.

As said by the chief executive officer of Cosmo Solar Energy Inc., Mr. Rodolfo Golez Jr., the plant has the capacity to generate up to 5.67 megawatts (MW). It is seen as a good source of alternative power and as a great help for the augmentation of the existing energy sources.


The project was welcomed by Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. of the province Iloilo.

According to Mayor Macario Napulan of Miag-ao the renewable energy plant is still open for expansion since the contract of CSEI with Department of Energy (DOE) is 25 years.
