SREC is the result of a partnership between WEnergy Global, CleanGrid Partners (a joint venture with TEPCO-PowerGrid) and Maharlika Clean Power Holdings. The award was shared with and presented to the Head of the Planning Department of Puerto Princesa City as a testament to the strong, inclusive partnership with the local government and community.

The company said this recognition upholds and affirms the excellence with which the ‘Maharlika Consortium’—a partnership of Maharlika Clean Power Holdings from the Philippines with Singapore-based WEnergy Global and CleanGrid Partners – have committed through their formal competitive bid to PALECO as part of the latter’s Qualified Third Party tender under the law. The Consortium will build on its strong foundation and flagship in Puerto Princesa’s SREC and provide 24/7 clean electricity to 8,000 households across Palawan through 17 new smart mini-grids.

These investments will make Palawan become the cleanest and lowest carbon emission province in the world, it said.

Furthermore, it will serve as a model to empower more families and unleash livelihood opportunities that contribute to the transformation of the local economy and help attain the Philippines’ commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals.
