Spectrum Partners Reap Benefits From Solar Rooftop Projects


In recognition of its valuable partnerships, Spectrum, a wholly owned subsidiary of Manila Electric Company (Meralco), held a ceremonial turnover of solar rooftop projects for The Orchard Golf and Country Club and Biostar NutriProducts, Inc.


The Orchard and Biostar, during separate events, attested to the benefits of the solar projects, which began operations in early 2022.


Spectrum’s partnership with The Orchard involves solar panels with a combined capacity of 99.9-kilowatt-peak (kWp) installed at the latter’s sports and leisure facility in Dasmariñas, Cavite.


Completed in January 2022, the solar rooftop has since generated more than 125,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of clean energy, allowing the company to save around 10,000 kwh in monthly consumption. This translated to savings in energy costs amounting to P785,000 last year.


In addition, The Orchard’s carbon footprint was reduced by around 89 tonnes, which is equivalent to planting 4,100 trees or reducing approximately 355,000 kilometers in vehicle travel per year.

Meanwhile, Spectrum’s project with Biostar, a licensed distributor and manufacturer of animal health products in the country, involves a 24.96-kWp rooftop facility at the latter’s poultry farm in San Pablo City, Laguna.

Energized in April 2022, the facility has so far generated some 21,520 kWh of clean energy, which translated into substantial savings of close to P167,000.

Biostar also achieved a 15.33 tonnes reduction in carbon footprint, which is equivalent to planting more than 700 trees or lowering vehicle travel per year by 61,054 kilometers.

Spectrum has been actively engaging partners from the private sector in various industries to help them achieve their sustainability goals through clean energy.

“Since 2016, Spectrum has been committed to providing end-to-end solar services to our customers. Our partnerships with The Orchard and Biostar are testaments to how we help our partners achieve their sustainability goals while also reducing operating expenses such as energy costs. With Spectrum’s top-notch service standards, our partners are also assured of good quality and reliable service for their solar rooftop projects,” Spectrum President and CEO Engr. Ferdinand O. Geluz said.
