MGen Renewable Energy, Inc. (MGreen), the renewable energy arm of Meralco PowerGen Corporation (MGen), recently signed the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) contracts for its solar power plant projects in Cordon, Isabela and Bongabon, Nueva Ecija.

MGreen awarded the contracts to SUMEC Complete Equipment and Engineering Co. Ltd. and held a ceremonial signing ceremony last January 24, 2024, at its office in Ortigas, Pasig City.

The said EPC contracts are for the construction of the two MGreen pipeline projects: the 49 MWac solar plant in Cordon, Isabela, and the 18.75 MWac solar plant in Bongabon, Nueva Ecija—both of which are among the winning bidders in the Department of Energy’s (DOE) second round of Green Energy Auction Program (GEAP). These projects signify a strategic move by MGreen to expand its solar power capacity and contribute significantly to the nation’s renewable energy aspirations.

The target commercial operation schedule for the two solar plants is set on the first quarter of 2025.

“As we move forward on this journey, the real hard work begins—the day-to-day dedication to ensuring the timely completion of these projects. We encourage the team to bring forth the same level of hard work and collaborative spirit to effectively address any challenges that may arise along the way.”


– MGen Expanding Markets Division Head Dan Neil


“SUMEC will be our strategic partner as we embark on the transformative journey towards realizing our vision of becoming a company at the forefront of renewable energy utilization.

We hope that with the cooperation of SUMEC, we’ll be able to deliver the project on time, on schedule, and within budget,”

– MGen President and CEO Jaime Azurin


In response to Neil and Azurin’s messages, SUMEC’s Senior Marketing and Sales Director Lennon Zong mentioned that MGen is one of their most valuable clients and that they would ensure the timely completion of the said projects.

Also present at the event were MGen Chief Operating Officer (COO) Dominic Camu and SUMEC Senior Director Dr. Ye Je.

MGreen currently has three operating solar plants: the PowerSource First Bulacan Solar Inc.’s (PFBSI) 55 MWac solar plant in San Miguel, Bulacan in partnership with PowerSource Energy Holdings Corporation; the Nuevo Solar Energy Corp.’s (NSEC) 68 MWac solar farm in Currimao, Ilocos Norte with Vena Energy’s Pasuquin Energy Holdings Inc., and the PH Renewables, Inc.’s (PHRI) 75 MWac solar farm in Baras, Rizal with Mitsui & Co.’s Mit-Renewables Power Corporation.
