Alaminos Solar is surrounded by Ayala Land’s Carbon Forest, a woodland reserve that acts as a carbon trap and home to biodiversity. Within the solar farm compound, the company has integrated a plastic recycling facility wherein plastic waste collected from the construction site were upcycled into eco-bricks, which were used in building the solar plant facilities.

Circular Approach ACEN has piloted the circularity approach in its 120 MW solar plant in Alaminos, Laguna construction site, diverting away from landfills a total of 32,540 kg of plastic collected from the solar panel packaging materials – or the equivalent of about 25 compact size cars – to be upcycled into eco-bricks and utilize in building the solar plant facilities.
GigaSol Alaminos also features a Tree Nursery, with a target to produce 120,000 seedlings in three years and is also surrounded by Ayala Land’s Carbon Forest, a woodland reserve that acts as a carbon trap and home to biodiversity. Plans to develop an Eco-Learning Facility where students and other visitors can gain knowledge about renewable energy and sustainability are underway. ACEN envisions to recreate this pilot Sustainability Hub to fulfill its goal of protecting the environment, creating jobs to reignite the economy, and engaging its host communities meaningfully while creating clean energy.
