According to Department of Energy of the Philippines (2017), the nation is under a great energy crisis. There are a lot of parts of the archipelago that are experiencing blackouts due to the shortage of supply of energy in power stations. However, the government is making new laws to remedy this crisis through the Energy Crisis Act. This aims to create a reservoir of energy. As of this moment, even though the efforts of the government are good, there are still areas that do not have a consistent energy supply.
