PetroSolar Corp., a joint-venture of PetroGreen Energy Corp. and EEI Power Corp., successfully synchronized the 50-megawatt Tarlac solar power project to the Luzon grid on Wednesday.

The solar firm started delivering power at 4:10 p.m. on Jan. 27 as part of commissioning tests.

PetroGreen owns 56 percent of the solar power project. It is the renewable energy subsidiary of publicly-listed PetroEnergy Resources Corp. while EEI owns the remaining 44 percent.

The solar facility covers 55 hectares of industrial land within the PEZA-registered Central Technopark in Tarlac City.

PetroSolar president Milagros Reyes described the 50-MW Tarlac solar farm as the largest single solar power facility completed in the country.
