Murang Kuryente dares Meralco to drop all coal plants for renewable energy


Renewable power plants need to be the norm, not the exception.

Consumer group Murang Kuryente has challenged Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) to walk the talk as they promote clean energy.

Meralco, through unit MGreen, plans to build up 1,000 megawatts of renewable energy in the next five to seven years.

The consumer group, however, wants more from Meralco.

“Renewable energy is safer, more affordable, and more sustainable than coal, and it is welcome to hear Meralco say they are committing to it. But we don’t want RE to be a token PR project of the company,” Murang Kuryente spokesperson Gerry Arances said.

“Meralco should abandon all its coal-fired power plant projects and completely embrace RE,” he said.

“We hope that this change can be manifested in concrete solutions such as shutting down its Atimonan coal project instead of using RE just for PR purposes,” Arances further said.
