Alsons said net earnings attributable to the parent rose to P148 million in 2019 from P94 million in 2018.
Consolidated revenues in 2019 grew to P6.8 billion from P6.66 billion in the previous year, driven by the operation of the 210-megawatt coal-fired baseload power plant of Sarangani Energy Corp. in Maasim, Sarangani province.

The company is building a P4.5-billion 14.5 MW, run-of -river hydro power plant at the Siguil River Basin in Maasim, Sarangani—Alsons’ first foray into the renewable energy sector.
The Siguil hydro power plant is expected to begin commercial operations in 2022 and will provide power to Sarangani, General Santos City and key municipalities of South Cotabato.
Alsons is also building the 105-MW baseload coal-fired power plant of San Ramon Power Inc. in Zamboanga City, which is scheduled to begin operations in 2023.
