Rules on green energy option for consumers out this month
The rules allowing consumers to choose renewable energy as their source of energy will be released this month, an official of the Department of Energy (DOE) said Tuesday.

"We have the Green Energy Option to come out this November also," Energy Undersecretary Felix Fuentebella told reporters on the sidelines of a forum in Makati City.

Fuentebella said the department has finalized the rules of the program and Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi will sign the document this month.

A salient feature of the Green Energy Option is the setting up of a 100 kilowatt hour threshold for consumers choosing renewable energy.

"Sa Green Energy Option kasi 100kW up ka palang ay puwede ka nang mamili," he said.

The challenge is how the DOE can prepare customers for the shift to renewable energy.

"Papano natin i-e-equip 'yung demand side na makawala ka doon sa kontrata na pinasok mo sa distribution utility mo na dati captured ka, ngayon magiging contestable ka," Fuentebella said.

"That's the power of choice," he added.

The DOE was mandated by Republic Act 9513 or the Renewable Energy Act of 2008 to establish a Green Energy Option program and provide end-users with the power to choose renewable energy as their source of electricity.

"Upon the determination of the DOE of its technical viability and consistent with the requirements of the green energy option program, end users may directly contract from renewable facilities their energy requirements distributed through their respective distribution utilities," according to RA 9513.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
