MANILA, Philippines- Naglaan ang  Department of Budget and Management (DBM)  ng P2.2 bilyon para sa tustusan ang  iba’t ibang programa ng Department of Energy (DOE) para sa taong  2023.

Sinabi ng  DBM na ang nasabing halaga ay “in line with the government’s bid to ensure affordable and clean energy supply in the country.”

Kabilang sa mga programa ng DoE ay ang Total Electrification Project, Renewable Energy Development Program, Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program, at Alternative Fuels and Technologies Program.

Sa ilalim ng  2023 National Expenditure Program (NEP), sinabi ng  DBM  na may P500 milyong piso ang inilaan para  “help the DOE fulfill its mandate of energizing around 10,000 households nationwide through the Total Electrification Project (TEP).”

Layon ng proyekto na tugunan ang pangangailangan sa  reliable power supply para sa mga natitirang “underserved at unserved Filipino households, na walang access  sa elektrisidad.

“This is good news, especially for far-flung areas where electricity is scarce. The Total Electrification Project of the DOE shall help improve and modernize industries in different provinces across the country, which will lead to the expansion of our economy,” ayon kay Budget Secretary Amenah Pangandaman.

Sinabi pa niya na ang P476 milyong piso ay ilalaan  para  pondohan ang Renewable Energy Development Program, Energy Efficiency and Conservation Program, at Alternative Fuels and Technologies Program ng DoE.

“These initiatives are part of the administration’s commitment to provide reasonably priced, sustainable, and sufficient electricity,” ang pahayag ni  Pangandaman.

“Consistent with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s directive to ensure the availability of reliable energy in various regions of the country, the DOE has been preparing for the implementation of viable electrification programs that will address the pressing issues faced by the energy sector,” ayon sa  DBM. Kris Jose
