Ceneco buying cheaper
EDC geothermal power


Central Negros Electric Cooperative will start buying cheaper, more reliable and cleaner power from the Tongonan plant in Leyte of the Green Core Geothermal Inc. starting this month, CENECO president Arnel Lapore said yesterday.

Based on a power sales agreement signed Monday GCGI, the power arm of Energy Development Corp.,  will supply 10 MW to CENECO from Dec. 26, 2011 to June 25, 2014, and 20 MW beginning June 26, 2014 up to December 25, 2021, he said.

Also included in the contract is a commitment by GCGI to make Ceneco its priority for power from its Palinpinon geothermal plant in Negros Oriental as soon as supply is available, Lapore said.moremoremore

Yap likens police
relief to martial law

Mayor Melecio Yap and members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Escalante City yesterday slammed the regional and provincial leaders of the Philippine National Police for allegedly trampling on the rights of policemen assigned in their city, by not giving them due process, in relieving them of their assignment.

Yap said the system applied to the Escalante policemen was like “Martial Law”, as they were relieved without justifiable reason.

With the imminent relief of the second batch of Escalante policemen, after the 22 already re-assigned to Iloilo since June, Councilor Santiago Maravillas, an ally of Yap, yesterday called for the relief of Chief Supt. Cipriano Querol and Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan from their posts that he claimed may help solve the police problems in the city.moremoremore
