Large Solar powered mall in Philippines

The Philippines’s biggest retail conglomerate SM Prime Holdings has launched the country's largest commercial rooftop solar power facility atop a shopping mall, amidst looming energy shortage in the country.

Philippines President Benigno Aquino III on Monday inaugurated the largest commercial rooftop solar installation ever built in the country, hailing it as a significant milestone for the country as it faces a looming energy shortage.

SM Prime Holdings, owner of nearly 50 shopping malls in the Philippines and five in China, unveiled the 1.5-megawatt (MW) solar farm installed on the rooftop of the SM North Edsa mall in Quezon City, north of Metro Manila.

Solar Philippines, which built the plant, said it was the ‘world’s largest solar powered mall’, fitted with 5,760 solar panels and 60 inverters and covering nearly 12,000 square metres on the top of the mall’s multi-level parking lot.
