Government takes action to ensure country’s electricity supply

The government takes action to ensure that the country has ample supply of electricity, in the wake of the shutdown of 12 power plants with combined output of 2,200 megawatts of electricity. According to Communications Secretary Sonny Coloma, government-owned Malaya I plant will be fully operational in two weeks. The government is also taking measures to avoid electricity price hike this summer with the Department of Energy conducting daily price monitoring to curtail possible abuse.
