Geothermal plant

Geothermal firm Energy Development Corp. announced yesterday that it re-commissioned the Northern Negros Geothermal Power Plant in Mailum, Bago City, for three months while validating data gathered from its technical tests.

In a disclosure at the Philippine Stock Exchange, EDC said it completed studies on 61 percent of the geophysical stations at the Northern Negros area at the end of March, a government press release said.

“EDC would be conducting an initial assessment of the quality of data already gathered before resuming and completing the programmed survey," the company said in the press release.moremoremore

Former Ceneco
heads back hearing

Two former presidents of Central Negros Electric Cooperative yesterday said they support the investigation to be conducted by the Bacolod City Sangguniang Panlungsod today on the firm’s “controversial” agreement with KEPCO-Salcon.

Former presidents Ed Guillem and Vicente Sabornay said the investigation is a must for the purpose of transparency and so the consumers will know the truth behind the agreement.

Roy Cordova, spokesperson of the Consumers Advocacy of the Philippines-Negros, sought the intervention of the SP on the non-contracting of CENECO with the Green Core Geothermal Inc. and on the status of the power supply vis-à-vis the contracts it has with the other power suppliers.moremoremore
