PIA Press Release

Feature: Energy fundamental to economic growth

Koronadal, South Cotabato (16 April) -- Energy is fundamental to economic growth and a catalyst for alleviating the poverty.

In remote rural communities in Mindanao where about 60% of the populations live below the poverty.

People remain poor because they are denied access to basic opportunities for development, like electricity.

The nation faces a major challenge of bringing electricity to more than 3, 500 barangays.

Roughly half of these communities are ideal candidates for renewable energy electrification because they cannot bring electricity economically from existing electricity grids.

The Alliance for Mi8ndanao Off-Grid Renewable Energy (AMORE), a seven-year profit of the United States for International Development (USAID) in partnership with the Government of the Republic of the Philippines, through the Department of Energy (DOA) and the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and the private, sector through Mirant Philippines, provides a sustainable approach to bring electricity to these remote communities of former rebel combatants on Western and Central Mindanao.

This program will also contribute to peace and development initiatives in Mindanao by improving the quality of life in those communities. (AMORE/MCD/PIA 12) [top]
