      Summary of the campaign

      WEnergy Global is expanding its operations in the Philippines in the field of rooftop solar projects.   

      In August 2016, WEnergy Global designed, installed and commissioned a 200 kWp solar power plant on the roofs of the Saint Louis College in San Fernando, La Union, Philippines. Click here to see a video impression.

      Since then the private college has saved over PHP 1,500,000 or approximately €30,000 and 105 metric-tons of CO2-equivalents.  The rooftop solar powerplants survived two typhoons with windspeeds of above 200 km per hour. This commercial project was the result of a one-day workshop in April 2016 on Developing Sustainable Campuses for the leadership of the private colleges and universities united in the CICM (Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae), a Catholic Organisation closely affiliated with Belgium and The Netherlands.

      This success has been celebrated through the adoption of a resolution by all members to install rooftop solar PV on all their campuses in the Philippines. This has triggered the 2nd project at the Saint Mary University (SMU) in Bayongbong with a 219 kWp rooftop solar PV system to be installed between in September-November 2017 and to be completed before Christmas 2017. The 3rd project is scheduled for Saint Louis College in Tugueraroo with a 200 kWp project. The estimated total cost of these two projects is € 585,000.00 See pictures of a site visit by the WEnergy Global Team.   

      In addition to the CICM group, WEnergy Global is currently working with the management of several private hospitals, medical centers and colleges in San Fernando, Tarlac and Tacloban, to design and install a total of 1,000 kWp rooftop solar power plants on their campuses. The estimated total cost of these projects is € 1.4 million.   

      With the above businesses to be executed in the coming 3-6 months, WEnergy Global needs to boost its working capital base.
