Last February 08, 2019, the Department of Energy signed H&WB’s Solar Energy Service Contract No. 2018-02-475. The Pinugay Solar Power Plant (PSPP) Project is a 75-MWac solar photovoltaic power plant to be constructed on at least 80-hectares of land situated in Barangay Pinugay, Baras, Rizal.
The site is approximately 39 kilometers southeast from Manila, bounded on the north by Antipolo City, on the east by Tanay, on the south by Laguna de Bay and on the west by Morong. It is accessible via concrete roads and can be reached by land transportation via Marikina-Infanta Road (Marcos Highway).
Based on the results of the Distribution Impact Study (DIS) it is technically feasible to interconnect H&WB’s proposed PSPP to the distribution network. Other activities on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) are being undertaken, for the issuance of an Environmental Compliance Certificate.
