A very good thing, indeed. Competition moderates prices to consumers, and compels improvement in services.
I think we'll see a surge in the number of independent generators. This will, of course, diminish the need to build mega plants.

The trend will be for more wind, solar, and possibly mini hydro plants. These are cheaper to build and maintain; can serve a limited number of costumers much more reliably. Cheaper electricity with a lesser impact on the environment. What's not to like.?

I say this association will only serve to protect the power companies.

Hey guys, those private power companies charge the KW/H at a rate of between 16 to 18.00RD compare to the government power companies which charges from 4.51 to 11.00 or 13.00RD pesos.

Bernies, I much rather pay the higher rates than have endure the constant black-outs.
