Meralco PowerGen Corporation (MGen) and San Buenaventura Power Co. Ltd. (SBPL) donated PhP1.5 Million worth of goods to aid the Quezon provincial government’s COVID-19 relief efforts.
The companies on May 1 turned over 425 sacks of rice and more than 200 boxes of canned goods to the Quezon Provincial Social Welfare Office in Lucena City.
MGen owns 51% of SBPL, which in turn operates a 500-MW supercritical coal-fired power plant in Mauban, Quezon.
With the donation, the power companies hope to help the province in sustaining the needs of Quezon residents amid the extended enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).
Other subsidiaries of MGen also provided aid to the host communities of their planned power projects.
Atimonan One Energy, Inc (A1E) as early as March provided personal protective equipment (PPE) including six boxes of N95 face masks, 450 pieces of washable face masks, 100 gallons of alcohol and 10 boxes of surgical gloves for the frontliners of Atimonan, Quezon.
A1E and its employees also donated 19 sacks of rice; while its technical partners and contractors extended help by providing financial support and distributing food for residents and volunteers manning the checkpoints in the municipality.
On the other hand, Redondo Peninsula Energy, Inc., another subsidiary of MGen, provided hygiene products to the residents of Barangay Cawag in Subic, Zambales.
MGen and its project companies recognize the seriousness of COVID-19 and are committed to support the government and the private sector in the fight against the pandemic.
