All barangays in the province are served by power facilities and completely energized but some far flung sitios of the barangays are not yet energized. This gap has been addressed by rural electrification program and still on going to cover other remote areas not yet served. The program has served 96.75% (64,281 households) of the projected number of household served. Cabadbaran and RTR had served more than 100% of its projected number of household served.

Since 2006, residential energy consumption in KWH has been consistently increasing from 36.44% to 42.30 in 2009. Industrial has the highest energy consumption of 53.50 in 2006 but it gradually decrease in 3 years at an average of 2.3%. The decrease might be an effect of wood based industries located in Magallanes slowing down production due to scarcity of raw materials.
