The maiden peso-dominated green bonds were 8.6 times oversubscribed.

ACEN has issued and listed its first peso-dominated ASEAN Green Bonds worth P10b which will be used to fund its renewable projects in the country.

In a statement, ACEN said the particular projects that will be supported by the green bonds are the 283-MWdc San Marcelino Solar I farm in Zambales, the 42-MWdc expansion of the 72-MWdc Arayat-Mexico Solar farm in Pampanga, as well as the construction of the 133-MWdc Cagayan Solar farm in Lal-lo, Cagayan.
