These are for the necessary 43GW power supply until 2040.
The Philippines' Department of Energy (DOE) has plotted "ideal" locations for new power plants that will be used to produce over 43,000MW of supply that will be needed until 2040.
In Luzon, the National Capital Region and Bicol were identified as ideal sites for new plants. Cebu, Bohol, and Samar are for Visayas and Zamboanga Sibugay, Agusal del Sur, and Sultan Kudarat are for Mindanao.
To meet the massive demand for power, energy secretary Alfonso Cusi urged the country to start building plants annually starting this year.
