Meralco, First NatGas sign 414 MW power supply deal

Lopez-led First Gen Corp. said its wholly-owned unit First NatGas Power Corp. has entered into a power supply agreement with Manila Electric Company (Meralco).

In a regulatory filing submitted by First Gen corporate secretary Rachel Hernandez noted the agreement covers approximately 414 megawatts of baseload capacity.

“The power will be sourced from the currently operational 414 MW San Gabriel combined-cycle natural gas-fired power plant which is located within the First Gen Clean Energy Complex in Batangas City,” Hernandez said.

The supply contract will be implemented once approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission. It will expire on Feb. 23, 2024, unless extended.

First NatGas will provide the baseload capacity and will be the immediate source of replacement power during outages of other baseload plants.

Solar Philippines has expressed its intent to supply Meralco with clean energy, but participants in the selection process were required to offer the same fuel as the original supplier— in this case, natural gas.
