20MW Maibarara Geothermal Plant

The 20MW Maibarara Geothermal project in Sto. Tomas, Batangas is the newest geothermal power facility in the country and the first to be inaugurated after the passage of RA 9513 or the Renewable Energy Act 2008.  The Maibarara project is an integrated power facility comprising steamfield power station and transmission line. MGI’s power plant is linked by a 5-km ling 115kV transmission line to the Luzon grid through the Meralco distribution system.

The facility was synchronized to the Luzon Grid on November 4, 2013 in coordination with Meralco and NGCP and it started its commercial operation on February 8, 2014.  The project has recently expanded to another 12MW and will come online in 2017.

The project owner and operator, Maibarara Geothermal Inc. (MGI) is a joint-venture company owned by PetroGreen Energy Corp. (PGEC), with a 65% stake, TransAsia Oil & Energy Development Corp. (TAO), which owns a 25% stake, and PNOC Renewables Corp (PNOC RC) with a 10% stake in the project.


Philippines Public Safety College (PPSC) LED Installation

As mandated by the Republic Act 6975 of the DILG Act of 1990, the PPSC is the premier educational institution for the training, human resource development and continuing education of all personnel of the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and the Bureau of Jail and Management and Penology (BJMP). The agency has a strong commitment to excellence, having acquired its ISO 9001:2008.

With several administrative orders enjoining government institutions to adopt energy-saving measures, the institution intends to pursue compliance with this directive by installing energy efficient technologies. PNOC RC, as a DOE-accredited Energy Service Company (ESCO) took the opportunity to partner with PPSC and provide technical assistance and financing for the installation of energy efficient lighting system.

In March 2016, a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was signed by PPSC and PNOC RC for the Energy Efficient Lighting Project.  The 5-year partnership involves the replacement of the two-thousand six hundred sixty-eight (2,168) bulbs of traditional fluorescent and CFL lighting fixtures in the PPSC training camps, the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) and National Police College (NPC) Buildings. Energy-efficient LEDs were used, which are expected to reduce energy consumption from lights by up to fifty percent.  Under the said agreement, PNOC RC shall finance, install and maintain the lighting fixtures without an upfront cost to the PPSC. Investment costs shall be recouped based on a revenue-sharing scheme from calculated monthly savings.

Boni Tunnel Project

PNOC Renewables Corporation provided 128 units of 50 Watt-peak solar photovoltaic (PV) modules to the Department of Energy as part of its contribution to the Boni Tunnel Energy-Efficient Lighting System (EELS) Project.  The project is an initiative of the Department of Energy towards efficient use of energy through promotion of EELS and to showcase the application of solar photovoltaic technology to power tunnel lighting system.  It involves installation of energy efficient lighting system consisting of light emitting diode (LED) lamps which will be provided by Philips Electronics and Lighting, Inc., and solar power supply with a total peak capacity of 6.4 kW from PNOC RC and lithium batteries for energy storage to be provided by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Presently, the power requirement of the tunnel lighting is 6 kW.  Replacement of the existing lamps with EELS will reduce the power requirement by more than 30%.   From 4.3 MWh, about 3 MWh of electricity will now be required by the EELS on a monthly basis, 18% of this will be supplied by the solar PVs.  Through this project, the Mandaluyong City government would realize savings on electricity bill of about Php10,000 per month.

Installation of the solar PV power supply system is almost finished.  Mounting of brackets for the LED lamps as well as installation of electrical wiring system is ongoing.  The target commencement of operation is April 2012.

Other participants of the project include the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) for the design and construction of appropriate infrastructure, and supply of electrical wiring system; Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) for assistance in the installation of the electrical system and management of traffic during the installation of the EELS; and the Mandaluyong City Government for the operation, maintenance, and security of the entire installation.
