Freedom from Debt Coalition (FDC) expresses its dismay during the last Presidential debate hosted by ABS CBN held in Pangasinan last April 24, 2016. All the candidates proved disappointing and offered no solution to the current power crisis.
None of the candidates have a clear solution or platform on sustainable energy, worse presidential candidate Mar Roxas from the Liberal Party, reiterated the use of “ Clean coal” as the solution to the power crisis in the country. FDC Secretary General Sammy Gamboa reminded Mr. Roxas that clean coal is a dirty lie.
A latest case of MERALCO abuse, regulatory capture and collusion, and monumental failure of Electric Power Reform Act (EPIRA)”, the Freedom from Debt Coalition (FDC) assailed the latest round of power rate increase by MERALCO.
FDC led a protest action by a group of electricity consumers in front of the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) office today to denounce the looming power rate hike by the energy monopoly starting this month.
