Aboitiz Power Corporation’s retail electricity entities Adventenergy Inc. (ADVENT) and AP Renewables Inc. (APRI) entered into a power supply agreement with Nexif Ratch Energy Investments Pte. Ltd. for the supply of clean solar energy.


The electricity supply will be sourced from the 74-megawatt peak (MWp) solar project of Nexif Ratch in Calabanga, Camarines Sur once it is completed by the second quarter of 2024. This will further grow ADVENT and APRI’s portfolio of customers from the commercial and industrial markets. The partnership amongst the companies is a response to the call to promote the use of renewable energy and for businesses to adopt sustainable practices in their operations.

“As an energy retailer, we need to address the needs of our customers, one of which is their interest in knowing where their power comes from, given how more consumers want to take part in the energy transition,” said AboitizPower First Vice President – Head of Retail James Yu.
