PALAWAN - The Palawan Alliance for Clean Energy (PACE), a group of concerned citizens and non-government organizations (NGO), has announced support for the "Reclaim Power" campaign of the Philippine Movement for Climate Justice (PMCJ).
PACE, together with civil society groups Palawan NGO Network Inc. (PNNI) and Environmental Legal Assistance Center (ELAC), youth volunteers, and indigenous communities, joined the call to promote the use of clean and renewable energy in Palawan.
They are opposing a proposed 15-megawatt coal-fired power plant of D.M. Consunji Holdings Inc. (DMCI) in Palawan.
According to environmentalists, the coal-fired power plant will damage the health and livelihood of locals.
Environment Secretary Gina Lopez earlier said in a forum in July in Palawan that there will no new Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) to be issued for coal-fired projects.
