The NLEX Corporation is installing solar power panels on major and newly expanded toll plazas along NLEX as part of its bid to intensify the use of clean, renewable energy in its operations. Areas that are being equipped with grid-tied solar power system include Balintawak Barrier, Bocaue Barrier, Mexico Toll Plaza, Angeles Toll Plaza, San Fernando Southbound Toll Plaza, and Karuhatan Interchange Toll Plaza. The Meycauayan Southbound Toll Plaza, which was the pilot area of the project in 2018, is now operational.

NLEX Corporation President and General Manager Luigi L. Bautista said that
“We have since incorporated sustainable energy in our business operations as we already have solar-powered devices such as closed-circuit television cameras, emergency call boxes and roadway lighting. This time, we’re implementing it in our toll plazas not only to generate energy savings, but more importantly, to lessen our carbon footprint.” He added that targeted for completion by the end of this year, the solar power project for toll plazas aims to improve energy efficiency, contribute to cleaner air, and reduce carbon emissions along the expressway.
