Shell sourcing solar power from Citicore

Shell begins 2017 plans with Tabangao refinery

Shell Energy Philippines (SEPh) will be sourcing 20 megawatts of renewable energy (RE) from Citicore Power’s (CPI) solar plant in Mariveles, Bataan.

Citicore President Oliver Tan said that the collaboration is part of CPI and Shell’s joint mission to provide clean and sustainable energy to meet consumers’ requirements, while hoping for a carbon-free environment. He further said that the two firms are looking forward to accelerate and expand the country’s shift to RE.

Launched last January, SEPh is Shell’s retail electricity supplier (RES), which focuses on delivering cleaner, flexible, and innovative energy solutions to commercial and industrial customers. Shell’s old Tabangao refinery in Batangas City currently hosts a solar farm, which plays a role in the conversion of the facility into an oil import terminal.

The Department of Energy recently approved the inclusion of Citicore’s RES Citicore Energy Solutions, Inc. among the participants in its Green Energy Option Program.
