Retail giant SM Prime Holdings Inc. is building the largest commercial solar rooftop in the Philippines as part of its commitment to use clean, renewable and sustainable energy in its operations.
SM Prime president Hans T. Sy said a 1.5-megawatt (1,500 kilowatt) solar rooftop is currently being built at the SM City North Edsa which will be used to power up a significant portion of the mall’s energy requirements.
The solar rooftop project, the largest of its kind on a commercial establishment in the country, will be operational by October this year and make SM City North Edsa the largest solar-powered mall in the world. It will be built by Solar Philippines, led by its president Leandro L. Leviste, the same company behind the other largest commercial solar rooftop installations in the country.
With the realization that fossil fuels are not sustainable, both financially and environmentally, companies are looking at solar as the new global trend in energy.
