Buskowitz Inaugurates 1 MegaWatt Solar System on San Carlos Town Center
Manila, Philippines, October 2018—Following just three months of installation work, including a setback caused by recent Typhoon Ompong (international name Mangkhut), the Buskowitz solar power company inaugurated its 1.1 MegaWatt installation on San Carlos Town Center in Pangasinan on October 20, 2018. The installation, which includes more than 4,000 solar panels is the first and biggest commercial Solar PV System installation in the region.
“We’ve wanted to go solar for many of our companies for some time,” says Mike Guico, owner of San Carlos Town Center, “But we didn’t want to do so until we found a company that is straightforward and easy to talk with, which is what we found with Buskowitz.”
San Carlos City Mayor, Joseres S. Resuello, commended both Buskowitz and San Carlos for their partnership to bring clean and greener energy to Pangasinan mall-goers. “On behalf of the City Government of San Carlos, it is with great pride and honor to convey our heartfelt recognition and warmest felicitations to the management of SAN CARLOS TOWN CENTER (SCTC) for doing their exemplary share in protecting our environment by setting to install more than 4,000 SOLAR PANELS in their pristine establishment thru the BUSKOWITZ ENERGY, the equivalent of 1.1 megawatts or 1,100 kilowatts peak.
This extraordinary move of SCTC will make them the FIRST and the BIGGEST commercial SOLAR SYSTEM in the entire Region.
SCTC going solar will have an enormous impact on the environment. The environmental advantages are the main drivers in promoting solar energy.
The City Government started going Solar a few years back, thru the installation of solar light posts at the City Plaza and the street lights along Palaris Street, Plaza Jaycee, and Rizal Avenue. Some of our Barangay Street Lights are now using solar energy. May your initiative trigger the start of others choosing to use RENEWABLE ENERGY (solar energy in particular) as their source of electricity.”
The environmental impact of the San Carlos Town Center solar installation is impressive. The installation will produce the same amount of electricity to power 184 homes for one year, saving the equivalent of 176 hectares of Philippine forests annually. It will also save 1.3M pounds of coal from being burned, the equivalent of 138,428 gallons of gasoline.
James Buskowitz, CEO of the solar power company, shared his thoughts on their largest installation to date, “Clean, renewable, and sustainable energy is what is going to drive the Philippines forward both in terms of the economy and the protection of the environment, and Buskowitz is really glad to have been involved in such a great project in Pangasinan that not only benefits its environment, but also hopefully encourages other businesses and individuals to make the switch for themselves.”
