Sacasun, the joint venture company between SunEdison Philippines Helios BV and Aboitiz Renewables Inc., the holding firm of Aboitiz Power Corp.’s investments in renewable energy, said in a petition it planned to commission the solar plant by March to avail of the feed-in tariff system.

The plant will be connected to the grid by a a two-point tap connection along the San-Carlos-Guigulngan 69 kB transmission.

The power plant’s output will be delivered toward the south portion of the line (first connection point) and the other portion toward the north side.
