Interruptible Load Program (ILP) 


A growing number of commercial and industrial companies have heeded the Department of Energy’s (DoE) call to participate in the Interruptible Load Program (ILP) – a demand-side management solution regarded as one of the countermeasures meant to help mitigate the projected power supply strain in the summer months of 2015. With this, the DOE, Senate of the Philippines and the House of Representatives, together with Retail Electricity Suppliers Association (RESA) and Meralco, sounded a clarion call for nationalism for big power users to take part in the ILP and help address the power supply situation.
ILP works by calling on business customers with loads of at least 1MW to run their own generator sets, if needed, instead of drawing power from the grid.  

For those who are interested, you may contact the DoE Electric Power Industry Management Bureau at (02) 840-1773 or Meralco ILP Hotline  at  632-8188.
