No to BNPP Revival Power Issues

  1. 1. Power Plays Electric Power and the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant The projected shortage in 2012 can be addressed by building geothermal, hydro power, natural gas, wind, and solar power plants even without the operation of the nuclear plant in Bataan if only government builds the necessary indicative capacity additions and develop and upgrade exisiting power plants. We discuss the historical background of the power industry in the Philippines in relation to the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant and address the reasons raised by the proposed bill in Congress as to the need for building the Plant. We further point out the immediate impact of the proposed bill on electric power rates.
  2. 2. Power Shortage? Quoting figures from the various updates of the  2012 GAP Philippine Energy Plan from the DOE on their (1495 mw) website, the projected shortage in 2012 can be addressed by building geothermal, hydro power, natural gas, wind, solar and coal plants even without the operation of the nuclear plant in Bataan if only government builds the necessary indicative capacity additions and develop and upgrade exisiting power plants. (combined data 2006 PEP Update+Supply Demand Profile, Napocor +simulation of half growth rates ) Kayang sagutin ang “kakulangan” sa 2012 kahit wala ang BNPP kapag itinayo ang mga geothermal, hydro, natural gas, wind, solar at iba pang pagkukunan ng enerhiya

  9. 9. Where are the plants? Government has  pursued a policy of privatization Has sold or in the  process of selling our generation plants Electric Power  Industry Reform Act (EPIRA)
  10. 10. Direct cost to people: nuclear tax The proposed bill would pass on the cost of the BNPP to ordinary  consumers as a nuclear tax of P 0.10 per kilowatt hour for the total electric power generated in the country. According to Section 22 of the Bill  − “SEC. 22. Alternative Sources of Funding. – The State may raise equity through a surcharge of PhP0.10/kWH of the total electric power generated in the country: Provided, That such collection of surcharge shall not exceed five (5) years from the date of its initial imposition. The funds collected shall be reimbursed to the electric consumers after such time that the BNPP shall commence commercial operations. The time frame for such reimbursement shall not exceed three (3) years. The State is also authorized to enter into international or domestic loan agreements to fund the implementation of this Act: Provided, That the total funds raised from the surcharge and the loan combined shall not exceed US$1 billion.” De-facto nuclear tax of 10 centavos per kWh
  11. 11. Direct cost to people: nuclear tax According to figures from the , the total electric power  sales in 2007 is 48,009 GigaWatt hours (1,000,000,000 or billion watt-hour) or 48,009 million kilowatt hours. 4 billion pesos per year or 100 M USD per year  For five years, the total would be 20 billion pesos.  For household of 300 kwh per month, you would  have to pay an additional of 30 pesos (no VAT yet) per month or a total of 1800 pesos for five years. PhP 20 B for five years = PhP 1800 per 300 kwh user (DOE website)
  12. 12. More loans and more costs The remaining 500 Million USD balance from  the projected one billion dollar cost is to be obtained by entering into international or domestic loan agreements. Delays and interest repayments can drive this  higher and become a new burden for the Filipino people. Overnight capital cost (2008 $/kW) : 4038 USD  620 MW = 2.5 B USD (excluding interests)  Posibleng mas lalaki pa sa 500 M na paunang uutangin dahil Www.nei.org sa interest at iba pang gastos http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/inf02.htm A comparative study published in January 2008 for a Connecticut Integrated Resource Plan, USA,
  13. 13. Decomissioning costs • P 15.35 B for 30 years of operation set aside for decomissioning (0.002 USD/kWh) = 326 M USD • Cleanup of Three Mile Island costs: TMI Dec 93 = 975 M USD • Decommissioning costs in the US: $325 million per reactor all-up (1998 $), France 480 million euro (70MW), UK 32 MW power plant 117 M EUR, 100MW power plant, cost about 90 M Kulang ang itinatabi para sa decomissioning
  14. 14. Waste disposal costs • P 7.67 B for 30 years of operation set aside for decomissioning (0.001 USD/kWh) = 163 M USD • These costs (decomissioning and waste disposal) shall be passed on to us by NAPOCOR or the concerned government agency • Total addon cost: 0.003 USD = 0.1413 PHP Kulang ang itinatabi para sa disposal
  15. 15. Total costs to be passed on to us? NPC either will absorb decomissioning costs or add it to  our generation rate For a 300 kWh household total for first 5 years  P 20B for five years = P 1800 pesos  P 7.67 B for 30 years disposal cost (first 5 years) = P 847  P 15.35 B for 30 years decomissioning (first 5 years) = P 1696  First five years = Additional of 4343 pesos  Or equivalent to additional 72 pesos per month!  Remaining costs to be collected throughout the lifetime  of the plant: 42 pesos per month Dagdag na singil ng 72 pesos kada buwan
  16. 16. Global Financial Crisis The projected peak demand for 2012 should be  recomputed to include the effects of the global economic crisis and recession. There should be a second look at the growth  projections used in the simulation for the 2012 targets due to the global economic crisis that is expected to foster GDP growth in 2009 to be only half or even less than in 2007 which would be the slowest since at least 2001. We need not rush and nor make “IMMEDIATE” the reopening the nuclear plant. Bagong targets dahil sa krisis: mabagal ang ekonomiya
  17. 17. Adjusted 2012 GAP (165 mw) (combined data 2006 PEP Update+Supply Demand Profile, Napocor +simulation of half growth rates
  18. 18. Adapted from Fernando Y. Roxas, Why is Napocor Losing So Much Money in The IPP Experience in the Philippines Erik J. Woodhouse , Program on Energy and Sustainable Development Center for Environmental Science and Policy , Stanford University http://pesd.stanford.edu
  19. 19. Stable supply = lower rates? Having a stable or even a surplus of electricity capacity does not necessarily translate to lower energy costs. In recent years when we had an energy oversupply, power rates have still gone up due to Surplus and yet electricity one-sided contracts and the prices is around 8.75 pesos per kWh!! (included are VAT, IPP pass-on provisions of contract costs, systems losses, etc; to be included NPC stranded EPIRA. debts, etc) (combined data 2006 PEP Update+Supply Demand Profile, Napocor +simulation of half growth rates)
  20. 20. Other sources can also provide baseload power. Nuclear plants are said to be able to supply baseload power as opposed to renewable energy, which can supply only a fraction of the energy demand. We need to develop and expand geothermal to supply baseload capacity in our energy mix as well as funding and developing energy-storage solutions that can compensate for the disadvantages of wind and solar power.
