Mindanao Consumers paying too much for electricity from coal power plants

Consumers in Mindanao who are supplied by coal power plants have been paying too much for their electricity. The reason is that distribution utility companies (electric cooperatives and investor-owned DU’s) have been imprudent in contracting for power supply from coal power plants. For instance, MORESCO2 in Northern Mindanao paid probably the highest rate of around P21.00 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for their loads in excess of the base load requirements in July 2018. That’s because MORESCO2 used power from the FDC Misamis coal plant to supply their intermediate and peaking loads. (This is termed “above-baseload” power supply in the simulation. Please refer to the Table: Cost of Coal Power Supplied to MORESCO 2 Consumers, July 2018)......»»

Rx for Global Competitiveness – How Solar Power Can Curb Normin’s Rising Power Rates

Solar power may now appear to be more expensive per kilowatt hour. However, when used properly, it is much cheaper than electricity from coal fired power plants and can be used to reduce rising electricity rates in Northern Mindanao. The Mindanao Coalition of Power Consumers (MCPC) and their allies have been advocating the construction of solar PV plants in Mindanao since 2011 but so far the power industry has failed to exploit this resource to curb the rising costs of electricity in the island......»»

Asean military spending not really about China

H NI -- Although Southeast Asia countries are spending more on military defense equipment, it doesn't mean they are increasing the risk of conflict in the region, according to Tim Huxley, Executive Director at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.   Speaking at a session on understanding Asia's new balance of power, one of the activities as part of the 2018 World Economic Forum on Asean in H Ni, Huxley revealed some surprising numbers on regional arms spending.   In 2017, Southeast Asian countries spend more than US$39 billion on defense.

Russia launches biggest ever war games

CHITA, Russia -- Russia launched Tuesday what it called its largest-ever military drills, with hundreds of thousands of troops taking part along with Chinese soldiers in a show of force NATO condemned as a rehearsal for "large-scale conflict."

No pressure for Donnie Nietes as he makes his super flyweight debut

With 46 professional bouts and three world championship runs across as many weight divisions, ALA Promotions star Donnie Nietes is certainly no stranger to the bright lights.  On Saturday evening (Sunday morning, Manila time), Nietes steps back on the big stage as he looks to add a fourth world championship when he makes his highly-anticipated super flyweight debut against compatriot Aston Palicte on the SuperFly 3 card at The Forum in Los Angeles, California.  Nietes and Palicte will fight for the vacant WBO Super Flyweight World Championship.  While he's the smaller man in terms of height and reach, Nietes comes in as the bigger star among the two Negrense protagonists.  As mentioned earlier, Nietes has been here before, challenging for a world championship. For his opponent on the other hand, this is the closest that Palicte has been to a world championship.  "For me, wala naman nang pressure." Nietes shared with ABS-CBN's Steve Angeles. "Iniisip ko lang na parang normal na laban para hindi tayo ma-out of focus sa gameplan natin." After years of dominating in the light flyweight division, where he eclipsed Filipino boxing great Gabriel "Flash" Elorde as the longest-reigning Filipino boxing world champion, Nietes made the jump to the flyweight division. While his run at the 112-pound division lasted for all of just three bouts, it saw him capture and defend the IBF world title.  Now set to embark on his super flyweight journey, Nietes says he's comfortable and confident in his new weight division.  "Yes, for now masasabi ko na nadagdagan ko yung power ko kasi umakyat ako ng timbang. yung katawan ko kumportable talaga sa 115-pounds." Not to overlook the task that's in front of him, but Nietes knows that Palicte is just the beginning for him.  The 36-year old Murcia, Negros native is finally in a spot where he can go after all those 'big names' that he's wanted to face for so long.  Names like Roman 'Chocolatito' Gonzales, like Juan Francisco Estrada, like Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, and even fellow Pinoy Jerwin Ancajas.  Simply put, Nietes wants all of them.  "Lahat ng nasa super flyweight, gusto ko kalabanin. Hindi naman ako medyo maliit kumpara sa kanila, talagang makakatapat ako sa kanila sa timbang." "Talagang pinag-hahandaan namin ang super flyweight." he added. .....»»
