Philippines Power Sector Strategy Advice
The goal was to operationalize a regulatory framework for electricity supply through solar home systems, as one option for electricity cooperatives in the Philippines. Such a framework would support the Government of the Philippines policy to achieve 90% household
electrification by 2017.
Two activities consisted of:
dissemination support of the policy framework, rulemaking and tariffsetting petitions to ERC by an international regulatory advisor;
legal support to Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Associations (PhilRECA) for finalizing the draft petition and the accompanying rules.
Closed. The Circular of the Department of Energy on subsidy policy and the fee-for-service model for SHS development was drafted.
The Rural Electric Cooperatives (Philreca) filed with the Energy Regulatory Commission the supplemental petition incorporating the proposed SHS tariff to the petition on rules for setting the SHS tariff.
