Agriculture-based manufacturing company SPMI is now being powered by clean, renewable, reliable energy from Lopez-led Energy Development Corporation (EDC), the world’s largest vertically integrated geothermal energy company. For two years, SPMI’s manufacturing plant in Leyte will be supplied with geothermal power from EDC’s Tongonan facility within the area.

“SPMI believes that its business goals must be in step with the interests and welfare of the community.

EDC is one of the world’s largest geothermal producers and the country’s leading renewable energy company with an installed capacity of over 1,400 MW, which accounts for 42% of the country’s generated renewable energy.
