Jana said PML would negotiate more Power Purchase Agreements with potential Independent Power Producers (IPPs).
According to her, the said the IPPs would generate power from different technologies, including but not limited to Solar PV, hydro, Wind, Biomass, Biogas, Battery Energy Storage System and Geothermal.
“It is high time the country explores other power generation technologies beyond hydroelectric power with run-of-river technology affected by the climate change. Renewable resources are clean energy and quick to implement, and as PML, we believe that mixing the technologies will reduce blackouts in the country,” said Jana.
Jana further disclosed that PML has developed short to medium term communication strategies to communicate and disseminate information about their company and the Single Buyer function.
