Solar Philippines President Leandro Leviste said in the statement that the country can save up to ₱100 billion annually once battery-equipped solar energy provide reliable, 24/7 power. Leviste said, “Vertical integration is the key to making solar cost-competitive, as in other countries, where solar is already cheaper than coal and especially natural gas.” The factory will also support Solar Philippines other projects, including a 50-megawatt facility in Batangas and Cavite and a 150-megawatts center in Tarlac.
