"Solar Philippines Neva Ecija Corporation (SPNEC) has planned to start
constructing a 3.5GW solar farm in the Philippines later this year.
During its annual stockholders’ meeting on 8 June, the company said it aims to
break ground later this year on its Nueva Ecija solar expansion project with a
total planned capacity of 4GW which will be controlled by the company. This
would make it the largest solar farm in the world, according to SPNEC.
The project expansion will be located in the same region as its 500MW solar
plant already under construction in the northern region of Luzon. The entire
project – including the 500MW portion already under construction – comprises
over 3,500 hectares of land acquired or being acquired.
The solar farm will begin commercial operation in 2026. It will contribute to
the Philippines’ increased solar capacity in the coming years. PV Tech
reported that the Philippines boasted 13GW of solar projects in the pipelines
as of March 2022, a tenfold increase from the 1.3GW registered in March 2021."
