ER 1-94, Giving Back to the Community

Energy Regulations No. 1-94 (ER 1-94) was enacted to make sure that host communities get a reasonable share of the profit from power plants operating in their area. The policy guidelines fall under the Department of Energy Act of 1992 in conjunction with the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001 (EPIRA).

ER 1-94 states that these communities will receive one centavo for every kilowatt-hour (P0.01/kWh) generated. These funds can be used by host beneficiaries for the electrification of areas or households that have no access to power and livelihood programs. This includes reforestation, watershed management, health, and environmental enhancement initiatives.

On August 23, 2018, ER 1-94 was amended through the Department Circular No. 2018-08-0021, which now allows AboitizPower to directly remit financial benefits to its host communities.
