Davao Light and Power Company is the third largest privately-owned electric utility in the Philippines. It holds the franchise for distributing electric power to Davao City, the largest city in the world in terms of land area, as well as Panabo City and the municipalities of Carmen, Dujali, and Sto. Tomas in Davao del Norte. On September 29, 2000, the franchise was renewed for another 25 years by virtue of Republic Act 8960. 

In 2011, the company sold 1.583 billion kilowatt-hours to 294,159 customers with a peak demand of 288 megawatts (MW). Among the country’s most efficiently run power utilities, its systems loss rate of 8.44% is below the government mandated cap of 8.50%.

Davao Light & Power Company (DLPC) is the power distribution utility in Davao City, Panabo City and Carmen, Santo Tomas and Dujali municipalities in Davao del Norte.

Davao Light operates in a Geographic Information System which has the Automated Tools for Locating AssetS (ATLAS) as one of its subsystems and utilizes the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Systems for the whole franchise, which allow remote control and monitoring of distribution facilities.

Davao Light has close to 295,000 customers, with 23 distribution substations and 2 sub-transmission substations strategically located throughout its franchise. On hot standby is its 54.8 MW Bunker C-fired standby plant with a rated capacity of 58.7 MW, but can provide an average of 40 MW on a sustaining basis. The standby plant is capable of supplying 19% of Davao Light’s electricity requirement.


High-end computers, sophisticated software, and other devices are being used to speed up meter reading, streamline billing, provide efficient and prompt response to customer inquiries, generate management information, and analyze electrical grid information.

Special attention has been devoted to improving Davao Light’s service standards. Innovative re-engineering efforts have cut down service cycle times. Outsourcing of tasks and reallocating manpower and other resources has allowed the utility to improve productivity while keeping costs relatively stable. Current efforts focus on teamwork, service excellence, and professionalism, in preparation for a deregulated and competitive environment.

Now and in the future, Davao Light is committed to deliver reliable and efficient service at reasonable rates.
