Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi on Friday (1 June) lauded the Pagbilao Energy Corporation (PEC) for beefing up its two power plants in Pagbilao, Quezon with a third facility that can produce additional 420 megawatts (MW) of electricity.

"With the growing economy spurring more and more commercial activities, the demand for power is also growing, so we would need power plants like the Pagbilao Unit 3 to sustain national development," Cusi said.

"The plant will also go a long way in supplying the energy needs of the country beyond the Duterte administration, thereby supporting future businesses," said Cusi.

The DOE Secretary acknowledged that the Pagbilao Unit 3 power plant is coal-fired, but he said it complies with environmental standards through the use of flue-gas desulfurizer (FGD) technology. FGD removes sulfur dioxide from exhaust flue gases of fossil-fuel power plants.

The PEC built the Pagbilao Unit 3 power plant at a cost of P976 million.

The plant is beside the Unit 1 and Unit 2 facility of the Pagbilao Power Station. Units 1, 2 and 3, which are all of the same technology, could generate a total of 735 MW.
