Lopez-led geothermal leader Energy Development Corporation (EDC) expressed its commitment to its customers and stakeholders of unimpeded power supply despite the pronouncement of an expanded community quarantine now covering the entire Luzon region, which was implemented to mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country.

The power producer has put a skeletal on-ground workforce in place for the continuous operations of its power plants across the country, as vital installations required to continuously function despite the quarantine.

“While we have begun taking all the necessary precautionary measures to keep our employees and their families safe from COVID-19, such as imposing a travel ban and having a work from home arrangement in all our facilities, we have also assigned key people in our power plants to continuously provide the electricity that is vital to our country, especially in these trying times,” said Marvin S. Bailon, head of EDC’s Business Development, Trading & Marketing.

EDC recognizes that healthcare facilities, pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies, and the food manufacturing industry that get power from them need reliable supply now more than ever in order for them to serve the general public.

“We are a committed organization that stands ready to fulfill our duty to the public—to not only provide 100% clean, renewable power but to make sure that it is uninterrupted,” added Bailon.

EDC’s 1,475MW total installed capacity generates 37% of the country’s total renewable energy, with its 1,181MW geothermal portfolio accounting for 61% of the country’s total installed geothermal capacity, putting the Philippines on the map as the world’s 3rd largest geothermal producer.
