Sec. Alfonso Cusi Statement on ERC Commissioners Suspension



Wazzup Pilipinas!

The following statement has been issued by the Department of Energy last 23 December 2017 on the Suspension of 4 ERC Commissioners.

“The law requires us to abide by the year-long suspension order of the Office of the Ombudsman against the four (4) ERC Commissioners. We have already requested for the designation of acting commissioners so that ERC can continue its functions.

We wish to assure all stakeholders that the suspension will not cause any debilitating effect to the power supply and services in the Philippines.

The suspension may cause further delays in power projects which require approval from a collegial commission. However, we will see to it that this will not have any significant impact in the short and medium term. The execution of the Power Development Plan covering the medium and long-term up to 2040 will continue unhindered.

The DOE has been pushing for reserve capacities for possible contingencies. This will ensure an uninterrupted supply at all times for power security and reliability.

Thus, we are certain that we can overcome this recent challenge to the energy sector.”

For concerns please contact DOE HOTLINE: ‎8402167.
