Bac-Man Geothermal Inc (BGI) owns and operates the 150-MW Bac-Man Geothermal Power Plant, a facility nestled on a 25,000 hectare geothermal reservation that straddles between Bacon, Sorsogon City and Manito, Albay in the Bicol region.
The Bac-Man Geothermal Power Plant (BMGPP) facilities consist of two (2) steam power generating plant complexes. The Bac-Man 1 facility originally included two (2) 55-MW units (Bac-Man Units 1 and 2), which were both commissioned in 1993.
Bac-Man 2 facility, on the other hand, originally comprises two (2) 20-MW units namely: Cawayan plant (Bac-Man Unit 3) located in Barangay Basud and Botong plant in Osiao, Sorsogon City.
BMGPP keeps its emissions low as a pure renewable energy facility while still being able to provide uninterrupted supply of clean, reliable power.
It consistently outperforms the grid with its average carbon intensity of 0.17 carbon dioxide per megawatt-hour (tCO2/MWh), which is much lower than the Luzon-Visayas Grid’s 0.7122 tCO2/MWh.
BGI is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Development Corporation (EDC), the world’s largest vertically integrated geothermal energy producer and the Philippines’ pioneer provider of 100% renewable energy (RE). With a current total installed capacity of over 1,400 megawatts, EDC currently supplies 42% of the country’s total generated RE.
