EDC's geothermal energy expansion project resumes operation

by BA Recebido

Sorsogon City (24 June) -- The city council here has endorsed the operations of th Rangas-Tanawon Geothermal Project, an expansion of the Bacon-Manito Geothermal Production Project of the Energy Development Corporation (EDC).

EDC's production field here supplies at least 80% of power needed for the Luzon Grid.

With the endorsement of the Sangguniang Panlungsod on the request of the EDC to continue with the operations of the expansion project, the city government thinks likely investors will be coming in to venture in business not only in this city but also in different business centers across the province.

Mayor Leovic Dioneda said after thorough deliberations with series of committee hearings conducted among members the city council and the community, the productive side of the project in terms of investment, employment and increase in royalty has ruled over.

"I am convinced that this project will certainly improve the lives of the Sorsoganons, that is why I am optimistic in pursuing this kind of developmental effort," Dioneda assures.

Moreover, he also said that the opening of Rangas - Tanawon Geothermal Project also promises sufficient power supply for the region that is clean, renewable and sustainable.

Governor Sally A. Lee meanwhile has stated that the project can be one of the reasons of pushing through charter change, which is one idea for a new kind of governance that can better propel the economy of Sorsogon.

"Whatever economic gains this project has for investment, it can be used in the operations and development of the province," Lee also said. (PIA Sorsogon) [top]
