Distributed renewable energy company, UGE and Manila based procurement and management company, Orion Group have teamed up to boost solar deployment in the Philippines.
The partnership will include the provision of flexible finance mechanisms for Filipino businesses to pay less or zero upfront cost for installing solar systems, with an affordable fixed monthly rate instead.
The deal includes a 150kW solar system and wind turbine to be installed this year at Calamba Doctors Hospital, significantly reducing energy bills.
The partnership will yield five further orders for 240kW renewable energy systems.
UGE and Orion have previously collaborated on several solar and wind energy projects.
The Philippines has a renewables target of 15GW by 2030 to help combat climate change.
The island nation is more vulnerable to the effects of climate change due to its large coast lines. Last November the country was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.
