THE Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) launched last week its renewable-energy subsidiary Spectrum via the unveiling of a solar gallery.
The gallery, on display at the Robinsons Novaliches Trade Hall, brings forward Spectrum’s set of services and 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.
“The Meralco brand of expertise in energy puts Spectrum in a unique industry position, as we move toward 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,” Spectrum President Jose Rainier Reyes said.
Local retail giant and mall operator Robinsons Malls has partnered with Spectrum for its solar PV system in Robinsons Novaliches, with its contracted capacity of 1.87 megawatts.
“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,” Robinsons Land Corp. President Frederick Go said.
Currently, Spectrum offers three options: Outright purchase, lease, or managed services. Spectrum offers its partners end-to-end technical capabilities with Meralco-trained engineers. 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.
