My comment: Combined total rated capacity of 1,000 MW, wow. RSA remains a very intelligent businessman. SMC has zero wind solar biomass plants, intermittent expensive subsidy-dependent unstable unreliable non-dispatchable plants, seems that RSA does not believe those climate drama. But there is a law (RA 9513, RE law of 2008) that has coerced all distribution utilities (DUs), electric cooperatives and WESM, that by hook or by hook, they should take those intermittents. So the Ayalas, Lopezes, Leviste, Perez, etc are into those expensive RE but they have no battery. RSA comes to give them battery, which will be a huge business project.
Earth Day 2021, first celebrated April 22, 1970 or 51 years ago. US President Joe Biden hosted the "Leaders Summit on Climate", April 22-23, 2021, attended by 40 other leaders in the world "to save the planet." This photo from vox.com. There is one odd-man-out in this photo. Can you spot it?... US Presiden Joe Biden, the only leader with no country flag in the background.

My comment: China is going into shale oil-gas fracking while the US under Biden cancels fracking in federal lands. China producing solar for UK and China using slave labor that UK hates. China and India building more coal plants that Biden and UK hate.

linked to Xinjiang forced labour
