All too often, when new “green”, “sustainable”, or “smart” cities are created, they forget about the importance of location. No matter how green the building or infrastructure design might be, it doesn’t make up for destroying virgin wildlife habitat, or paving over productive farm land (are you listening, China?).
That’s not the case here, though. Clark Green City is not just green in design, it’s green in location. That’s because it’s actually restorative development. Rather than sprawling onto undeveloped land, this excellent project is cleaning-up and redeveloping the defunct U.S. Clark Air Base.
MANILA - A solar energy firm has committed to invest an estimated P1 billion within the next two years for a solar energy project in Clark Green City, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) said.
BCDA said it has signed a lease agreement with SSR C-Solar Power Inc. to establish a solar energy farm in Clark Green City capable of generating 20 megawatts of electricity.
The 20 megawatts to be generated from the solar farm will be sold to the national grid and can provide power to at least 10,000 households.
