Moreover, its distribution business also soared by 9%, from 1,404 GWh to 1,526 GWh due to an increase in demand as a result of the El Niño phenomenon.

The company had also reported an 11% drop in EBITDA to Php 2.6 billion due to advantageous timing in pass-through expenses that were recorded in 2023 as a result of falling fuel prices.
