Two Visayan-based firms are shifting to renewable energy and run their manufacturing plants with Aboitiz Power Corp.’s Cleanenergy, a renewable energy solution that supplies communities and businesses with power derived from run-of-river, large hydro, solar and geothermal.

AboitizPower said Tuesday its retail electricity supply unit Advent Energy Inc., would provide car builder NKC Manufacturing Philippines Corporation factories in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, and sugar producer Victoria Milling Company with Cleanergy. The Cleanenergy brand supports the government’s Green Energy Option Program.

“We support the GEOP initiative of the DoE (Department of Energy) as it gives customers the freedom to choose renewable energy in meeting their energy requirements and their energy supplier,” AboitizPower senior vice president for Commercial Operations Sandro Aboitiz said.

“More importantly, it allows end-users to play an active part in reducing environmental impact and safeguarding the future of generations to come,” he added.

NKC president Norihiko Matsuda said that using reliable and responsibly-sourced energy is essential in their business operations.

For VMC, shifting to renewable energy to run its bioethanol plant will help the company achieve its sustainability goals.

AboitizPower said the government’s GEOP program drives the company to continue its momentum in reaching a 50:50 balance in its generation portfolio.

GEOP provides options for consumers to source renewable energy from a licensed supplier, contrary to only consuming what is supplied by the distribution utility in their area.
