Danilo Suarez: Duterte must address growing energy demand

Mar 17, 2018 @ 15:38

Quezon 4th District Representative Danilo Suarez, in his Manila Standard column, called on President Rodrigo Duterte to address the country’s energy problems.

The Quezon politiko said that while the growth of the economy is impressive, it also means a growing demand for more energy.

“I am not impressed with the current status of our energy sector. Recently, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines placed the Luzon power grid on yellow alert due to unexpected shutdown and limited generation of several power plants,” Suarez said.

He also said there are not enough power plants in the country to meet the energy demand.

“Let us face it, with our growing economy, our demand for energy increases; yet we are behind in building more power plants to meet this demand,” Suarez said.
