Duterte graces inauguration of Leviste’s solar facility

 

Solar Philippines inaugurated its solar factory in Sto. Tomas, Batangas with no less than President Duterte as its guest of honor.

During the event, the company unveiled a solar panel with the Philippine map and another with Duterte’s face, initiated by employees.

The factory uses state-of-the-art technology and the highest quality materials and can produce 800 megawatts (MW) this year, which is greater than the solar production capacity of the entire United States.

Solar founder and president Leandro Leviste is looking to expand the factory’s capacity to 2,000 MW in 2018

Having its own production facility has allowed Solar to generate the lowest cost power in the history of the Philippines, Leviste said.

?Filipinos can save 30 percent on electricity. The average family paying P3,000 will see their bill decrease to P2,000 a month, and now with the latest batteries, entire towns can use solar energy for 24-hours a day,? he said.
