Background on Plant

In September 2018 the San Miguel Corporation announced that the Department of Energy (DOE) had approved its application for a grid impact study (GIS) had been approved August 1, 2018.[1][2]


The project is opposed by the Green Alert Network (GAN) and the Diocese of San Carlos in Negros Occidental, which pointed out in a position paper that San Carlos was recently named one of the world's 100 most livable cities.[3][4]

Provincial ban on coal plants

In March 2019 Gov. Alfredo G. Marañon Jr. signed Executive Order 19-08 banning new coal plants in Negros Occidental.[5] Given the ban the project appears to be cancelled.[6]
