A coal-free Negros is within our reach

Know more

For decades Negros Occidental has been caught in a tug-of-war between coal and renewable energy.

Negros has demonstrated that communities can take the renewable energy route and challenge the will of the coal plant industry. In 2002, Pulupandan, Negros Occidental became the first ever community in the Philippines and Asia to reject a coal power plant installation.

SMC Power Holdings threatens to derail this record with its new 300 megawatt coal power project in San Carlos City.

Last March 6, Gov. Alfredo C. Marañon Jr., signed an executive order declaring Negros Occidental a “coal-free” province.

Together we can move Negros towards a  low-carbon future by asking the the Provincial Board to declare Negros coal-free an ordinance — to seal, once and for all the decades long peoples’ struggle against dirty energy development in the province.
