According to a news report on the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Robinsons Starmills in San Fernando, Pampanga now has a 2.88-megawatt solar power plant with 10,880 solar panels installed on its roof deck.

This breaks existing records for this kind of renewable power generator. It beats the solar facility installed in 2014 on top of SM City North, which has a capacity of 1.5 megawatts.

The Robinsons Starmills solar facility is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emission of up to 2.25 million kilograms, which is equivalent to planting 100,000 trees.

In addition to this, Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) have plans of operating new power plants in its malls in Tacloban and Bacolod. When these are turned on, RLC will have a total of ten malls with solar power plants that have a capacity of 12.5 megawatts and an annual yield of 14.6 million kilowatt-hours.
