The Alsons Power Group recently signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the Philippine Eagle Foundation, Inc. (PEF) to support the protection and preservation of the Philippine Eagle at the Mt. Busa Key Biodiversity Area (KBA) in Sarangani Province. The Mt. Busa KBA is home to a sizeable Philippine Eagle sub-population. Under the terms of the MOA, Alsons Power will provide material and personnel support for a three-year conservation and public awareness program. Alsons will likewise support the tracking and protection of a rescued Philippine Eagle that will be released into the area.
Alsons Power has two power facilities within the vicinity of the Mt. Busa KBA: the 210 mega-watt (MW) Sarangani Energy Corporation (SEC) baseload thermal power plant which has been operating since 2016; and, the 14.5 MW Siguil Hydro run- of- river hydroelectric power plant currently under construction.
Alsons Power is Mindanao’s first private sector power generator. The group currently operates four power facilities with a total generating capacity of 468 MW serving over eight million people in 14 cities and 11 provinces in the country’s second largest island.
