In line with President Rodrigo Duterte’s order on the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Meralco PowerGen Corporation (MGen) would like to announce that activities at sites owned by its project companies have been suspended since Wednesday, March 18.

Sites affected are that of Atimonan One Energy, Inc. (A1E) in Atimonan, Quezon; and PowerSource First Bulacan Solar, Inc. (PFBSI) in San Miguel, Bulacan.

Meanwhile, San Buenaventura Power Ltd. Co. (SBPL), through a skeleton workforce, continues to operate its 500MW power plant in Mauban, Quezon to ensure availability and delivery of stable and reliable supply to electricity consumers.

MGen and its subsidiaries also banned all non-essential travels of their personnel to and from the power plant sites in Bulacan and Quezon.

The company is currently implementing a Business Continuity Plan and other key safety measures to ensure that despite halt on site activities, all mission critical  activities will continue. Employees based in its head office in Pasig City are currently working from home.

“We recognize the seriousness of the COVID-19 and we at MGen put utmost importance to the health and safety of all our employees, partners and stakeholders,” said MGen President and CEO Rogelio L. Singson.

“We acknowledge the challenge we are all facing now, and we are committed to support the government and the private sector in fighting this pandemic,” he added.
