Nestle Philippines switches to renewable energy sources

Food giant Nestle Philippines, Inc has shifted to renewable energy for the operations of its manufacturing facility in Lipa, Batangas.

In February, the Nestle factory is now getting its power supply from the MakBan Geothermal Power Plant of the AP Renewables, Inc., a subsidiary of AboitizPower Corporation.

“The partnership between AboitizPower and Nestle Philippines is a testament to the shared commitment of both companies to continually look for better and sustainable solutions to reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment in a more sustainable manner,” Nestle Philippines Technical Director, Peter Winter, said.

AboitizPower President and COO Antonio R. Moraza said that the power company’s ‘balanced mix portfolio guarantees that consumers have reliable, ample and reasonably priced power for their needs.

“We value our partnership with Nestle as we share the same passion to do better than the ordinary to provide our customers with quality products and services,” APRI president and COO Felino M. Bernardo said.

Currently, AboitizPower has a net sellable capacity of more than 1,200 MW in its renewable energy portfolio.

Last April, the company launched its 6 MW binary plant at the MakBan facility after its full restoration.
