In order to boost the use of the Net-Metering Program and Distributed Energy Resources (DER) in Iloilo, the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has entered into a tripartite agreement with Iloilo City and MORE Electric and Power Corporation (MORE POWER).

This agreement intends to take the advantages of these energy initiatives more accessible to the people of Iloilo, promoting green practices and in line with the Phillipines’ sustainability targets.

Mayor Jerry P. Treñas emphasized, “With this partnership, we aim to promote green practices, aligning with the national government’s targets. In Iloilo, our efforts include solar panels at the national high school, city hall, dialysis centers, and eye care facilities.”

The collaborative effort looking to promote the utilization of RE sources in the local area, further renewable energy development and deployment, and facilitate the sharing of best practices, knowledge, and information concerning programs and policies relevant to renewable energy for the benefit of Iloilo City residents.

MORE POWER President and CEO Roel Z. Castro discussed, “One of the obligations under the agreement is to have a one-stop shop where applicants and interested parties can come. Our collaboration with the city has been active for the past three years, and we warmly welcome the involvement of ERC. Being the first in Visayas to enter into this agreement showcases our strong support for the government.”

ERC Chairperson and CEO Monalisa C. Dimalanta said, “This is the second pilot LGU with the ERC for the Net-Metering and greater RE program. We hope that other LGUs are similarly inspired to partner with national agencies to bring solutions closer to our people.”
