Citizen Machinery Philippines Inc., a company based in Tanauan, Batangas that manufactures and assembles automatic lathe machines, tapped geothermal energy producer Energy Development Corp. for the supply of clean and reliable power.

“As a manufacturing company, Citizen Machinery Philippines desires to be supplied by stable and low-cost electricity, especially since our foundry consumes much power,” Citizen Machinery Philippines president Akihide Kanaya said in a statement.

EDC will supply CMP  with 2.5 megawatts of geothermal power from EDC’s BacMan Geothermal Project over a two-year period starting Dec. 26, 2018.

“EDC’s BacMan Geothermal Project meets these criteria. At the same time, we remain committed to give our customers the highest level of satisfaction as possible. This includes making sustainable contributions to society through innovative manufacturing solutions, while recognizing our impact to the environment. Choosing to be powered by 100-percent renewable energy strongly supports this commitment,” Kanaya said.
