Kirahon Solar Farm
In line with its mission to contribute to nation-building through the construction of energy development facilities across the country, First Balfour embarked on its second solar power project, this time in Mindanao.
Similar to the Burgos Solar Farm Project in Ilocos Norte, the Kirahon Solar Project is a solar photovoltaic (PV) electric power generating facility. The project is located inside the Philippine Export Zone Authority and Phividec Industrial Estate in Sitio Kirahon, Brgy. San Martin, Villanueva, Misamis Oriental. With a gross installed capacity of 10.00 MWAC, the project will deliver power to the Cagayan Electric Power & Lighting Company’s distribution network at a voltage of 34.5 KV. The PV system is located inside a 15-hectare land, enclosed by a 1.6 KM perimeter fence. The plant has 41,800 units of 305-watt solar panels generating a nominal power output of 12.53 MWp which is being sold to the local electric provider Cagayan Electric Power & Light Company.
