Last April 21, 2014, representatives from the Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU), Department of Energy (DOE) and Propmech Corporation signed a memorandum of agreement at the DOE's office for the installation of solar PV net-metering facilities at MLQU.

MLQU joins other Philippine universitities in installing solar PV systems as part of DOE's goal of doubling the country's total RE (renewable energy) instllation of 5,521 megawatts. Among those schools are Mapua Institute of Technology and La Consolacion College-Manila. The DOE project aims to install up to 100 kW rooftop solar PV systems to power the aforementioned schools to aid in lowering their power costs.

"Congratulations to all. We hope that suppliers will continue to install more panels in this manner. And we hope the schools will also welcome them because it's a win win situation for everybody," said Energy Secretary Carlos Jericho L. Petilla.

The net metering mechanism under RA 9513 allows customers of Distribution Utilities (DU) who own renewable energy (RE) facilities to export their system's excess energy back to the DU's distribution system.

Propmech Corporation will handle the installation, operation, monitoring and evaluation of MLQU's solar PV system. Propmech Corporation, a locally-owned business, is a local solar PV system provider, having completed several projects as the ADB solar power plant, the Rural Electrification of the Philippine government as well as Meralco's solar PV centre.

Propmech offers free consultation to determine the kind of solar PV system clients need to get the best return on their investment and energy production. For inquiries, visit
