Solar Asset Management: See this to sell electricity from home!

Solar Asset Management: See this to sell electricity from home!

By: Elena Grace Flores

Among the key actions identified by the recently concluded 1st Cebu Cebu Archdiocesan Conference on Climate Emergency is renewable energy. Together with its partner, WeGen, they encourage the use of solar power in community homes. In fact, they have structured its utilization for the Dioceses, Churches, Convents, Schools and Seminaries within its jurisdiction. Despite the absence of government subsidy, business-minded individuals can actually make money just by installing solar panels in one’s home. Solar asset management revolves around maintaining the physical equipment and components of a power generating site, and the generation and sale of energy. It is the systematic direction of a site’s physical assets to ensure optimal financial performance – to the verge of the electric company’s paying back the household owner for excess power.

Engr. Vincent Salas explains how WeGen can help in providing solar power in the community.

Effective Solar Asset Management Process

According to experts, inverters are crucial elements in converting Direct Current to Alternating Current needed for electrical appliances and devices. The solar panel collects and produces the DC. Therefore, it is very important to inform the electric provider of the household regarding the installation of such solar system. It would then facilitate the installation of a specific electric meter to gauge the energy input and output. Once it generates more that the monthly consumption of the household, the electric company would gladly buy the excess energy.

A Glimpse on the Estimated Initial Costs

WeGen’s Orly Alparce said that it could be a challenge doing mass installations to community households despite the many benefits of this clean and renewable energy. The costs are not affordable for most people. We are looking at around Php 33,000 initial expenses just for the basic solar panel installation. It can only be suitable for the necessary needs like lights, TV, electric fans and refrigerator. A Php 100,000 investment should include a 1 or 2 hp airconditioner.

An Opportunity to Financial Institutions

Loan offers are rampant these days for personal, business, or travel or educational expenses. Perhaps, credit companies can partner with a solar energy system provider like WeGen. In the past, the Visayan Electric Company or Veco promoted a payment plan for solar power use to their subscribers. However, it died down due to lack of understanding from the public.

The Possibility of a Government Subsidized Patronage

Solar Asset Management is not for everybody. For one, it has a slim chance to be subsidized by the government unlike in other countries. However, the private sector can very well collaborate with the supplier to come up with a better deal for direct consumers to enjoy this technology that is friendly to mother earth. Kudos to Fr. Michael Murphy Sarsonas who spearheads the event and Archbishop Jose Palma for seeing this through.

Gov. Imee Marcos as Deuterium Hope Gears Up for Election 2019 with Lower Electricity Cost


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos narrates how the windmill power source came about in her province. During the time of her brother, Bongbong Marcos, the Dutch installed the initial structures after their research for a decade. They have combined electricity generated from solar devices from China with the windmill to fully supply the whole area. She explains that the key to lower energy cost is to minimize the use of gasoline. This catches the attention of the legitimate Deuterium explorers from the EsMaulana-PNOC joint-venture. Gov. Marcos is definitely the key to fast-tracking its permit while Bongbong Marcos’ VP election protest drags along. She is doing something to neutralize the high cost of gasoline to make the commodities affordable for her constituents.

Hydrogen Fuel Instead of Gasoline

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos recently calls on the Supreme Court for a rapid resolution of his protest against VP Leni Robredo. It has been 2 years and the process is still ongoing. The younger Marcos is the author of the Senate bill 408 in 2010 and calls for the renewal of alternative energy in 2013 by exploration, promotion, and development of deuterium hydrogen fuel sources abundant in the Philippine Sea particularly in Surigao and Cotabato basins.

Deuterium Possibility

Like any other economic developments, the deuterium case is also highly political. It goes through strict compliance with the Department of Energy even with the endorsement of President Rodrigo Du30 through his Special Assistant, Bong Go. He is also running for Senator. Another re-election candidate, Senator Nancy Binay is also supportive of the alternative energy source as the vice-chairperson of the Energy Committee and a member of the Senate Electoral Tribunal. She works hand in hand with the Marcoses on various issues. In fact,  she is the one who passes a resolution to investigate the 2016 election anomalies.


Back to Ilocos Norte, it is not only about windmills, churches, lighthouses and white beaches. The popular Blue Lagoon in Pagudpud is actually a spot not just for the usual surfers but also for kite surfers. The sea might not be blue during the rainy season, but some great waves are surely abundant. Gov. Marcos is proud that her bailiwick is now a surfing destination.


The lady governor understands the nature of her local people.  This is evident when she said that the heat in her hometown is very much felt because of their outdoor lifestyle. Farming is a major means of living. The nationwide garlic supply comes from them. She made sure that the agricultural infrastructure like the irrigation system is sufficient. Community facilities are also designed to strengthen families regardless of origin. Highland, mid-land, and city dwellers benefit from the designated public service amenities.
