Schneider Electric provides electrical balance of system for a 100 MW PV power plant in the Philippines

Schneider Electric is providing a fully integrated electrical solution using their next generation of grid-interactive technology.

Burnaby, Canada, June 16th, 2015 — Schneider Electric Solar Business, a global leader in solutions for solar power conversion chain, has been chosen to supply the complete balance of system and service contract for a 100 MW photovoltaic (PV) power plant in the Philippines.


This latest project win is on top of a 30 MW PV Power Plant that was commissioned in March 2015 and is providing solar power to the Philippine electrical grid.

For both of these projects Schneider Electric is providing a fully integrated electrical solution using their next generation of grid-interactive technology which is fully compliant with the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) grid code. The complete solution includes Conext Core XC inverters, DC Boxes, Array Boxes, monitoring & control system, ring main units, medium voltage switchgear, and power plant controller; all of which support the new grid requirements currently being implemented in the Philippines.

In addition to providing the balance of system components, Schneider Electric will also supply maintenance services for the complete solution for the next 10 years. This service contract will be executed by Schneider Electric's local service team in the Philippines.

"These two projects are a confirmation of Schneider Electric's commitment to the growth of the solar market in Southeast Asia," said Serge Goldenberg, head of Schneider Electric Solar business unit. "We believe that it is the reliability and competitiveness of our fully integrated and standardized solution, along with our ability to provide a complete service contract with local service teams, which won us the projects."

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
