Isidro Consunji, Chairman and CEO of SMPC, ruled out the possibility of purchasing existing plants instead. He said: “We are open to purchasing other plants, but the prices being offered in the market make it better for us to pursue developing plants rather than purchase existing plants.”

SMPC is the administrator of the Calaca plant, through its subsidiary St Raphael Power Generation Corporation.
