Solar powered homes to rise in Iriga, Legazpi

Other News

Some 4,000 units of solar-powered homes will be built in two cities in the Bicol region, the chairman of a housing company recently announced.

Imperial Homes Corporation chair Emma Imperial said that 3,000 of these houses will rise in Iriga, and another 1,000 in Legazpi City. She made the announcement during the launch of its first 24-hour solar powered homes in Sto. Tomas, Batangas last week.

The project is part of the Enfinity Imperial Solar Homes Inc., a partnership of the company and the Enfinity Philippines, a company involved in solarpowered mass housing in the country. The partnership is offering a house-and-lot package that include a 1,000-watt solution that would produce four kwh of electricity per day.

This solar solution can power a refrigerator, two electric fans, television, two chargers or laptops, three LED lights, washing machine and rice cooker.

“For an off-grid system of 1,000 watts solution with battery, the buyer can have an avoided cost of electricity in the amount of P1,560 per month and save an estimate of P500 per month even with their 30-year amortization,” Enfinity said in a statement.

The installation of the system would range from P150,000 to P165,000, which would be included in the homeowner’s amortization. - fpj
