OB Montessori Center has partnered with Spectrum to create a 99-kilowatt peak solar power project in Quezon City, responding to the government’s call to switch to clean energy.
Spectrum, a unit from Manila Electric Company (Meralco), released a statement stating that its chief operations officer Patrick Henry Panlilio, and Meralco’s Joy Mendoza head, Meralco, and Sara Soliven de Guzman, president, and chief executive officer of OB Montessori, signed the agreement for a 99-kWp rooftop solar project at Fairview Campus.
Spectrum stated that the project will generate approximately 132,000 kilowatt hours of clean energy each year, which would translate into savings of almost PHP900,000.
The solar roof will reduce OB Montessori’s carbon footprint to 94 tonnes. This is equivalent to planting more than 4,300 trees and reducing vehicle travel by around 232,200 miles per year.
“Meralco, our mother company, and OB Montessori share a strong commitment to sustainability, and nation-building, which makes this partnership even more promising. OB Montessori will be able to rely on Spectrum’s energy expertise as well as end-to-end solar solutions to get the support they need to transition to renewable energy. Panlilio stated that this is a guarantee.
OB Montessori is now part of a partnership with Spectrum and Meralco for the installation of solar power plants. Meralco offers tailored solutions to residential, commercial, and industrial customers who want to switch to solar energy.
