These companies have struck a deal to supply Manila Electric Co. with 50 MW each and are awaiting the approval of the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) on the power supply agreements (PSAs).

The COE is a requirement for the issuance of Certificate of Compliance (COC) by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC), which is necessary before any generation company can commence commercial operations.

The COC has a term of five years during which period the generators are required to comply with the terms and conditions set forth in the ERC’s guidelines for the issuance of certificate of compliance for generation companies/facilities that include reportorial, technical and financial requirements.
