Philippines to price renewable energy seperately
A separate pricing methodology will be implemented by the Philippines' Energy Regulatory Commission for the import-and-export of renewable energy into the power grid.
Those that could qualify for net metering include wind, solar, biomass and biogas energy system or other RE systems which are capable of getting installed within the premises of a qualified end-user or QE.
A distribution utility’s blended generation cost equivalent to the generation charge, including any and alladjustments appearing in the QE’s electric bill, shall be used as the preliminary reference price in net-metering agreements.
The distribution utility, in turn, is allowed to charge incremental supply and metering charges which shall be equivalent to 10-percent of their existing peso-per customer-per month supply and metering rates plus R0.01 per
kilowatt hour to all customers who avail of the net metering program.
It was further specified that “the cost of RE supply procured under net metering agreements shall automatically be included in the DU’s total generation cost to be recovered from DU customers as part of the adjusted generation rates.”
