“Our country has missed out on economic opportunities because electricity has been either too expensive or in short supply. This fact is evident. The magnitude of this opportunity loss over the last 25 years is in trillions of pesos. Even today, economic growth spurts are capped by expensive electricity or a very short supply of it.
What hope then do we have to create jobs and eliminate poverty in the Philippines if this basic prerequisite to any economic activity, electricity, is not provided in abundance and at a competitive, cheap price? None!”
