‘P1.9B solar plant
ready by mid-year

The P1.9 billion 19.4-megawatt solar power project in San Carlos City will start commercial operations in the second quarter of this year, San Carlos Solar Energy Inc. (SaCaSol) chairman, Jose Ma. Zabaleta Sr., said yesterday.

Two additional solar plants are also in the pipeline for Negros, he added.

The SaCaSol project, located at a 35-hectare site in the San Carlos Economic Zone in southern Negros Occidental, has obtained the approval of the Board of Investments and construction has began, he told the DAILY STAR.moremoremore

Paglaum proponents
filing protest

Convenors for the creation of Barangay Paglaum in Bacolod City, who are questioning the results of the January 11 plebiscite, have 10 days to file any opposition or protest before the Commission on Elections, Bacolod Election Officer Mavil Majarucon-Sia said yesterday.

The creation of Brgy. Paglaum as the 62 nd barangay of Bacolod was rejected by majority of the voters of Brgy. Mansilingan during a plebiscite held Saturday with the “no” votes dominating the “yes” votes by a difference of 405 votes.

Those who opposed the separation of Paglaum Village from Mansilingan by voting “no” garnered 2,987 votes against the 2,582 who voted “yes” in favor of the creation of Brgy. Paglaum.moremoremore

Cop chief, 3 others relieved

The recapture of a jail escapee and the recovery of two M-16 assault rifles he had stolen from a police station, failed to stop the relief of a police chief and three of his men, assigned in Don Salvador Benedicto town.

Senior Supt. Milko Lirazan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, yesterday said the relief of Police Inspector Celjun Nemenio as Don Salvador Benedicto police chief, and three of his men, on January 10 was ordered by the Police Regional Office 6.

Lirazan said their relief was done while investigation of the jail break is going on, to determine if there had been laxity on their part.moremoremore
