Philippines Power Sector Strategy Advice

Overview

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.

Status

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.
