Decentralised solar storage systems provide a reliable, affordable and clean power supply to people and businesses with a poor connection to electricity. For the 16 million people that are living off the grid in the Philippines, these systems can replace polluting energy sources like diesel generators and kerosene and can be scaled up, enabling people to grow their business or install more electrical devices in their homes.

In 2017, a solar-plus-storage system was installed at Qi Palawan, a Zero Carbon Resort certified ecoresort on the island of Palawan in the Philippines. An array of solar panels with a capacity of 42 kWp provides electricity during sunlight hours, which is stored and managed by the 124 kWh energy storage system (ESS). The system saves 12,500 litres of diesel fuel per year and provides the resort with reliable, environmentally friendly energy.

The system at Qi Palawan is currently open for investment on the crowdinvesting platform ecoligo.investments, with investments from just €500 and fixed, attractive interest rates. Visit ecoligo.investments to find out more.
