January 13, 2017- Meralco officially launches its renewable energy subsidiary SPECTRUM via the unveiling of a solar gallery, showcasing the end-to-end process of generating power via solar technology, and highlighting the benefits of solar adoption in homes and businesses.
The gallery, on display at the Robinsons Novaliches Trade Hall, also brings forward SPECTRUM’s set of services & offerings via the Solar Photovoltaic (PV) system that converts sunlight into electricity to power homes and businesses.
The launch of Spectrum signals Meralco’s foray into renewable energy and other technologies, as part of its commitment to sustainability. This is also the latest development in the company’s diversification of its distribution business.
According to Spectrum President Jose Rainier A. Reyes, “The Meralco brand of expertise in energy puts Spectrum in a unique industry position, as we move towards our mission to be a one-stop shop for renewable energy solutions. Spectrum aims to provide tailor-fit solutions for industrial, commercial, and residential customers through our in-depth understanding of energy consumption behaviors, and our strategic partnerships with world-class technology partners.”
Reyes adds, “We strive for continuous innovation and to be at the cutting edge of renewable technology. We advocate corporate governance and social responsibility as we cut across boundaries to contribute to nation-building.”
Spectrum advances unique business model opportunities that provide customers with the flexibility to design their partnership in a way that is best suited for a customer’s energy needs. Currently, Spectrum offers three options: outright purchase, lease, or managed services.
During the launch event, Spectrum harped on the benefits of solar adoption. Aside from reducing total cost of energy and generating power from clean sources, solar adoption also monetizes the roof, enhances property value, and reduces utilization of air-conditioning units, since solar panels provide insulation from the heat of solar radiation.
Local retail giant and mall operator Robinsons Malls has partnered with Spectrum for its solar PV system in Robinsons Novaliches, which has a contracted capacity of 1.87 MW.
Robinsons Land Corporation President Frederick D. Go fully supports solar adoption in the company’s thrust towards innovation. “We are very interested in exploring new technology and are glad that by doing this, we are also able to promote sustainability and social responsibility.” Go said.
Spectrum offers its partners end-to-end technical capabilities with Meralco-trained engineers. Likewise, it is supported by world-class service and product providers. These ensure customers of quality and safety of installed PV systems, while enabling them to work within financing options that fit their budget.
