It was announced by the Energy Department that they plan to limit the exposure of renewable energy sources in areas with transmission line constraints to avoid the scenario that occurred in Negros Island.
The announcement was made after the Solar Summit where Energy Assistant Director Mario Marasigan said that the department is trying to avoid the system built in Negros because there were too much solar concentrations in a single area.
Greenpeace Philippines gathered solar providers and financing institutions from all over the country to discuss the importance of solar energy on common homes and businesses.
Given the circumstance that solar energy is accessible to most Filipinos, Greenpeace Philippines wants consumers to see the available easy financing options in the market to help increase the use of renewable energy. The aim was to avail financing packages to lessen the initial cost of installation while already saving on energy costs over the long term of use.
