Laguna Province headed by its Governor, Hon. Ramil Hernandez awarded AP Renewables Inc. (APRI) as one of Laguna’s top tax payers last March 15, 2024 at the Laguna Cultural Center. The awarding was held during the Laguna Stakeholder’s Summit in conjunction with the celebration of the annual Anilag Festival of Laguna.

As one of the biggest sources of renewable energy in the Philippines, APRI was nominated by its two host LGUs – Bay and Calauan for the award. The summit was also attended by Senators Imee Marcos and Mark Villar. In her speech, Senator Imee Marcos highlighted that her father, former president Ferdinand Marcos Sr., introduced a decree (Presidential Decree 1111 of 1973) designating 162,000 hectares of land as a geothermal reserve. She emphasized that this decree significantly contributed to enhancing the Philippines’ energy supply. Furthermore, she proudly noted that the company (APRI) operating the geothermal power plant is one of Laguna’s top tax payers.

APRI, through its President Jeffrey Estrella, shared “We are honored to be recognized as a top taxpayer by Laguna and the municipalities of Bay and Calauan, underscoring our commitment to contributing positively to the community where we operate.”

Bay Top Tax Payer.  The municipality of Bay gave recognition to AP Renewables Inc (APRI) as its Top 1 Tax Payer for 2023. Headed by Bay’s Municipal Administrator Atty.
