Electricity energy consumption

Electricity is still the leading used energy in the Philippines. From 2008 to 2017, the consumption of electricity in different sectors of the country increased over the years. The residential sector and industrial sector were one of the major consumers of electrical energy. A sign of slowing down is nowhere near since most of the sectors rely on electricity for their operations. Although some parts of the country, especially the rural areas where families belong to the lowest income brackets used kerosene for lighting. Majority of the Filipinos belonging to the urban areas have access to electricity.

Sources of energy

Electricity is derived from different sources of energy produced by powerplants. For electricity to be produced, power plants harness different resources. As of 2018, most of the power generated by the power plants in the country came from coal. The Luzon and Mindanao areas have shown their dependency to coal while the Visayas region opted for a cleaner energy out of renewable energies.
