The 2008 update of the Power Development Plan indicates that the country requires a total capacity addition of 4,100 MW. The Luzon grid needs a cumulative capacity of 3,000 MW, the Visayas grid demands 500 MW while the Mindanao grid requires 600 MW additional capacity. Since the government is prohibited to enter into new obligations, it has encouraged the private sector to build up 1,020 MW additional generation capacities.
