First solar-powered homes in the Philippines with Lithium batteries

After over a year of launching the country’s first solar powered mass housing community, Imperial Homes Corporation (IHC) in partnership with one of the world’s largest solar developers, Enfinity is set to create another milestone in the real estate industry as it fulfills its commitment in providing sustainable and environment-friendly communities to homebuyers.

 

On March 14, 2016, IHC in partnership with Pag-Ibig Fund will award and turn-over to the qualified homebuyers their first solar-powered homes with Lithium batteries.

 

Lithium batteries compared to Lead-Acid batteries are superior, resistant, safe and environment-friendly, thus, it is more expensive in the market.  A technology breakthrough, this is  the first time in the Philippines that lithium batteries will be used in a solar power system for home use. Another first is  the use of lithium batteries for mass housing.

 

This event will surely create a mark for the industry, as this will serve as a proof that Pag-ibig Funds, together with other financing institutions and leading banks are now in full support of this innovation and technology in the mass housing projects of the country that will alleviate poverty while addressing the worsening climate change.

 

Our innovation and technology contributes to the countries 3million housing backlog and climate change with reduction of carbon emission by 70% in 2030.  With 5,000 homes that IHC plans to build, we can annually avoid 7,200 tons of carbon dioxide emission.

 

Other private and government organizations have already expressed their ardent support to this project like Climate Change Commission and IFC/World Bank.  IHC’s Solar powered homes were also the first to receive the country’s first EDGE Certificate (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) which is a global standard for Green Building.

 

Imperial Homes advocacy is to share and promote its business model to all developers to make the Philippines the Solar Capital of Asia.
