Known as the Emerald City of the Philippines, Muntinlupa has a population of approximately 460,000 people. The modern city is located at the southwestern part of Manila.
The 12.74kWp grid-tied PV system was built in August 2012 and was one of the first residential grid-tied rooftop projects in the country.
Today, the system has the latest monitoring accesories from SMA which allows the solar generation to match the load consumption without feeding any excess energy to the grid. The solution achieves close to 100% self-consumption with zero export. Despite the size, this system is a model that can be replicated for PV systems over 100kWp in the Philippines, as net-metering is not often guaranteed.
SMA makes it possible to meet utility requirements through intelligent energy management with the SMA Sunny Home Manager and the SMA Energy Meter.
