“This is a good opportunity to help sustainably manage an existing generation facility, which is a vital component of the Mindanao grid and provides affordable and reliable power to many Filipinos. Since this is an existing generation facility, there are no emissions added to the total GHG emissions of the Philippines,” the statement read.

“With the energisation of the Mindanao-Visayas Interconnection, this plant will be able to export much-needed capacity to the national grid, which has experienced tightness of supply reserves in recent years,” it added.
