President Rodrigo Duterte is optimistic about the future of power generation in the Philippines.

During the switch-on celebration of the 500-megawatt coal-fired power plant of San Buenaventura Power Ltd Co. (SBPL) Wednesday, Duterte said the government remains committed to the use of clean energy to drive economic growth.

“Let me assure our partners in the private sector that this administration remains committed in harnessing the potential of sustainable and renewable energy in driving the growth of our economy,” according to the President.

“Let me therefore take this opportunity to encourage everyone, especially the people behind San Buenaventura Power, to look especially behind the aspect of power generation. And always keep in mind that beyond profits, your primary objective is to provide reliable and affordable electricity to our people,” he added.

Duterte also thanked the San Buenaventura Power for its investment that will provide additional energy supply to the Luzon grid.

“Let me thank you for increasing the capacity of our energy sector to meet the growing electricity demand in Luzon. With your help, I am confident that we can chart a better future for the power industry as we march towards a more sustainable and progressive future,” he said.

SBPL’s P56.2-billion supercritical coal-power plant is the first of its kind in the Philippines. The plant uses high efficiency, low emission coal technology that allows it to operate at increasingly high temperatures and pressures to reach higher efficiencies while significantly reducing harmful emissions.
