BY JOHN LOURENZE POQUIZ

The National Renewable Energy Board yesterday allayed fears of a spike in power rates with the tapping of renewable energy, saying the added cost will only be about 12.57 centavos per kilowatt-hour. (1 US$ = 41 Pesos, 1 Peso = 100 centavos)

In its proposed feed-in tariff (FIT) rates submitted to the Energy Regulatory Commission, the NREB pegged the rates at P6.15 per kWh for hydro, P7 for biomass, P10.37 for wind, P17.65 for ocean energy, and P17.95 for solar.

This gives an average of P11.82 per kWh. More »
