DOE sees Zambo City as potential hydro power site

Zamboanga City (19 November) -- The city has potential sites for the development of hydro-power according to a team of researchers from the Department of Energy Central Office.

Jaime Planas, senior science research specialist revealed this prospects to Mayor Celso Lobregat during a briefing last Sunday.

The briefing was conducted after completing 3 days of ocualr inspection of some of the city's major rivers and waterfalls with potentials for producing electricity.

Among the sites the group visited include the rivers at San Ramon, Limpapa, Anuling, Upper Lamisahan, Manicahan and Pasonanca. These sites can only meet the requirements for mini hydro-power plants.

The team also inspected the old and unserviceable Hydro-Power Plant at Pasonanca which was built in 1957 that provided the city's electricity needs. At the time of its operation, the plant had the capacity of 500 KW. The possibility of rehabilitating and re-activating the facility can also be looked into, according to the team.

During the briefing, the DOE team promised to submit to Mayor Lobregat a detailed report of the findings of their preliminary assessment.

Earlier, the Sangguniang Panlungsod adopted a resolution addressed to the Department of Energy thru Mayor Lobregat requesting the agency to conduct feasibility study on potential sources of alternative power of renewable energy in the city. (Zambo Today/ZCPIC) [top]
