GBP has been dedicated to fuel Cebu’s economic development. The Visayas region had experienced rotating brownouts in 2008 due to tight power supply. Through Cebu Energy, GBP put up 3×82 MW clean-coal power plant facilities in Toledo City to address the increasing energy requirements of the region. With the assurance of stable power supply, mining, tourism, retail shopping industries and major industries like shipbuilding prospered. In 2014, GBP, through Toledo Power, commenced operations of its 1×82 MW expansion project to serve additional energy demand.
GBP also operates 60 MW coal-fired and 40 MW diesel-fired power plants in Toledo City through Toledo Power Company. GBP is a member of the GT Capital Group of Companies.
