Citicore, Bench partner for RE deal


Citicore Energy Solutions, Inc. (CESI), the retail electricity supply (RES) arm of Citicore Power Inc., will be supplying renewable energy (RE) to the head office of local retail giant Bench in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.

CESI and Bench recently signed a deal that would provide for RE solutions inside the 22-storey Bench Tower.

Among the solutions are a virtual garden wall, a rain collector for water recycling, green pockets, and windows that would allow natural light to penetrate into the building.

CESI got its RES license from the Energy Regulatory Commission in January 2017. Under its portfolio, it supplies contestable customers with a total demand of up to 55 megawatts.

Citicore is a locally-owned firm involved in sustainable ventures, such as power generation from a diversified mix of pure renewable energy sources and woody biomass production.
