This is known now as the Calatagan Solar Farm made by Solar Philippines. It was developed, financed and constructed by the corporation on the 22-year-old enterprenur Leandro Leviste, son of Senator Loren Legarda and former Batangas Governor Tony Leviste.

It cost a total of $120-million or P5.7-billion which is consisted of 200,000 solar panels.

Renewable sources of energy now is becoming a hit to big investors. The solar farm is expected to offset more than a million tons of carbon dioxide or equivalent of planting of 5 million trees.

The 160-hectare farm crossed near the foot of Mt. San Piro and creating livelihood in the three towns of the home province of Leviste.

“Being on a peninsula (Calatagan), facing the South China Sea, the solar farm enjoys a steady breeze, the highest levels of sunlight in Southern Tagalog and is seldom hit by typhoons,” Leviste said.
“Whereas others see solar as just a part of their portfolio, we believe it will one day supply the largest share of the energy mix. Costs continue to improve, and solar will soon become cheaper than coal. As the only local company organized to develop and build solar farms from end-to-end, we are in a unique position to realize that potential,” Leviste added.

The Calatagan Solar Farm is the first time a local company has developed, financed and constructed this kind of renewable energy facility.

Most of the cost of the plant was funded by Philippine Business Bank. Banco de Oro, China Bank and bank of Commerce also supported the project.

Solar Philippines started their business by building solar panels on rooftop of shopping malls like Central Mall Biñan, SM North Edsa and Robinsons Palawan.

Leviste was recently named as one of the Forbes Asia Magazine’s “30 Under 30” that list inspirational young leaders in various fields covering consumer technology, enterprise technology, the arts, healthcare and science, media, social entrepreneurship, finance, industry and retail.

Hope this will be a springboard for bigger investment for renewable source of energy!
