Operations & Maintenance

The Taal volcano erupted in January 20, 2020, after 42 years, affecting thousands of families and causing millions of damage. Taal is one of the world's smallest volcanoes but also one of the Philippines' most active.  

Among the areas affected were 17 sites with on-grid solar rooftops that were blanketed with up to 1.5 cm of ashfall.  Our operations and maintenance teams set off for an enormous task of cleaning-up when it was declared safe to travel.  Armed with soft brushes and soft brooms to prevent scratches on the PV modules, the teams in full protective gear worked tirelessly until the power plants were once again fully operational.  They were able to complete their task without incident and on schedule despite some after- shocks experienced during the clean-up.
