How to Get Out of Credit Card Debt – Get a 3-5 year bank loan

How to Get Out of Credit Card Debt – Get a 3-5 year bank loan

Yes, your technology expert and business development consultant who is also a personal financial planner and married to a chartered personal financial planner has demonstrated that getting a short term loan of 1.67% per month (20% p.a.) for 3 years is far a better way out of a credit card debt of 3.5% per month interest (42% per year) and 5% minimum payment of amount due. The 5% minimum due is calculated by adding the 3.5% interest due to the outstanding balance. A simulation by the expert has shown that paying the 5% minimum due will only liquidate the date after 20 years (1 / 0.05 = 20 years).

Here is a sample calculation that will prove that consolidating all your credit card debts into a single or split bank loan of lower interest and 3-5 year term is the better choice. More »

Thanks to the visitors of my energy technology and pricing blog – my global audience and expertise

Thanks to the visitors of my energy technology and pricing blog – my global audience and expertise

Since the start of my blog, a number of readers throughout the world have visited my blog.  As an author and blogger, I am deeply honored and very happy with the response and continued interest.

Your support will surely be appreciated as it gives me greater hope that by sharing my expertise and experience, I would be able to foster greater understanding on the various market, technical, environmental, social, economic and financial aspects of providing energy to support global economic growth.

It is only with sustainable and cost-effective provision of energy such as electricity, process heat and space cooling/heating and lighting that both developed and developing economies will continue to provide the growth needed keep the global economy at pace with population growth, otherwise, poverty and underdevelopment will continue.

Again, cheers to our readers worldwide. To those who donated and ordered my spreadsheets on cost of power generation technologies, levelized cost of energy and electricity, simple gas turbine, clean coal technology, etc, a million thanks for supporting your energy technology expert.

Thanks also to a leading energy and exploration company for engaging my services in preparing the market, technical, economic and financial model and feasibility study for a lignite coal-fired CFB and a natural gas-fired CCGT power plants. More »

Where to Get Assistance for Energy & Electricity Investment Opportunities in the Philippines

Marcial Ocampo provides a blog on issues and concerns regarding current and future fuel cycles and power generation technologies as they affect the environment, fuel supplies and power generation capacities, efficiency of utilization of fuel or energy resource, pollution & greenhouse gas emissions, and cost of power (overnight capital cost $/kW) and energy (levelized $/kWh).

He provides market, technical and economic feasibility studies and prepares project finance models for determining asset value (bid price), levelized price of energy or electricity, or equity returns (DCF IRR).

He is also familiar with investment opportunities in the Philippine energy and electricity sector (Philippine Energy Plan, Power Development Plan) and the regulatory framework (EPIRA and RE laws,  implementing rules and regulations, Distribution Code, Grid Code) for purchasing a power plant from PSALM/NPC or for putting up a new power plant (conventional, fossil or renewable).

He can guide you in securing incentives under the latest Philippine Renewable Energy (RE) law and its implementing rules and regulations (IRR).

In addition, he could guide you in securing the needed endorsement from the Philippine Department of Energy (DOE), permits and licenses from the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and other government agencies (DTI, SEC, BIR, DENR, EMB, NWRB, PNRI, DOLE, NTC, BOC, PPA, ATO, PDEA, BOI, NCIP and LGUs) in order that the facility is duly licensed to operate as a power generation facility with an electricity tariff that is the “best new entrant” for the given location and application in order to balance the need of the customers for affordable electricity and the need of the investor to meet its investment return criteria.

Should you need assistance in preparing a project finance model and a feasibility study (market, technical, economic, financial) using Philippine oil, energy and electricity data, please don’t hesitate to contact Marcial.
