ERC Renews Certificates of Compliance

The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) recently renewed the Certificates of Compliance (COCs) of Mindoro Grid Corporation (MGC-IGACOS) valid until 14 May 2022, AP Renewables, Inc. (APRI) until 06 November 2021, and Oriental Mindoro Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ORMECO) until 23 May 2022.

The renewal and issuance of the COCs of MGC-IGACOS, APRI, and ORMECO was previously deferred in view of the preventive suspension of ERC Chairman and CEO Jose Vicente B. Salazar issued by the Office of President on 02 May 2017 (PO-DC Case No. 17-D-094).

The MGC-IGACOS, located at Igacos, Davao del Norte, operates diesel generating units with an aggregate capacity of 7.56 MW.  APRI, on the other hand, operates the Makban Binary Geothermal Power Plant with a capacity of 7.0 MW, and is located at Sto. Tomas, Batangas.  Lastly, ORMECO operates diesel generating units with a capacity of 2.175 MW and is located at San Teodoro, Oriental Mindoro.  

The ERC’s renewal of the COC indicates the concerned generation companies and distribution utility continuance with their respective commercial operations for the next five (5) years and strict compliance with financial, environmental, and technical standards.  COCs are issued by the ERC in favor of a person or entity to operate a power plant or other facilities used in generation of electricity pursuant to Section 6 of Republic Act No. 9136 or the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001 (EPIRA) and Section 4 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the EPIRA.

"The ERC’s renewal of the respective COCs of Mindoro Grid Corporation (MGC-IGACOS), AP Renewables, Inc. (APRI), and Oriental Mindoro Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ORMECO) will aid in ensuring a stable and reliable power supply in the country,” Officer-In-Charge Alfredo J. Non said.
