Since then our installed capacity in Thailand has risen to 132 MWp. In 2016, Conergy built 274MWp of solar capacity in the Philippines, making Conergy the market leader in the country for solar EPC services.

Furthermore, in terms of engineering, our plants are so well designed to maximize output and therefore revenues for the plant owner. Our German knowhow/expertise and both global and local knowledge are second to none.” “Additionally, as a global company we operate at a scale and volume that cannot be easily replicated which means that we are able to source key solar components at extremely competitive rates. These savings we are able to pass to our customers.
