Calamba City, 18 December 2019 – Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG) has completed the construction of three solar-powered rooftops for Jentec Storage Inc. in Calamba, La Union and Ilo-Ilo. With a combined capacity of 1.1 megawatts (MW), the system will generate an estimated 1.55 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity per year, and will allow an annual reduction of 1042 tons/CO2, equivalent to planting around 15,500 trees each year.

The photovoltaic system is expected to cover 17% of Jentec’s power needs and to slash down energy bills by more than 20%.

“Total Solar DG is committed to helping customers drive down both power costs and carbon footprint. We are very pleased to be considered a long-term partner for Philippines customers and are committed to helping reduce pollution and climate change impacts for the country,” said Gavin Adda, CEO of Total Solar DG SEA.
