MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Energy (DOE) has issued certificates of endorsements (COE) to 49 power projects as of the end of July this year, government data showed.

The COE is a requirement for the issuance of Certificate of Compliance (COC) by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC). It is a prerequisite before any generating company can start operating its power project.

Data showed there are 26 renewable energy (RE) projects cleared with COEs.

Of these RE projects, there were 22 solar farms, the largest of which is the 100-megawatt Sta. Rita solar farm of Jobin-Sqm Inc. in Subic Freeport Zone in Zambales.

The list also includes the 63.3-MW solar farm of Solar Philippines Calatagan Corp. in Batangas, the 50-MW solar farm of Petro Solar Corp. in Tarlac and the 50-MW solar project of Sulu Electric Power and Light (Phils) Inc. in Palo, Leyte.

The DOE granted COEs to two hydropower plants – the eight-MW hydroelectric power plant of Mindanao Energy Systems Inc. in Claveria, Misamis Oriental and the one-MW hydropower project of Mindoro Grid Corp. in San Teodoro, Oriental Mindoro.
