$9M solar wind, mini-hydro power plant in Albay

BACACAY, Albay – Energy Secretary Angelo T. Reyes led the groundbreaking ceremonies for the $9 million Misibis Solar, Wind and Mini-hydro Power Project in Cagraray Island in this town last July 29.

The Secretary of the Department of Energy (DoE) flew here by a chopper from San Miguel, Catanduanes where he had earlier officiated the groundbreaking rites for a Mini-hydroelectric project.

The Misibis Solar, Wind and Mini-hydro Power Project is owned by Sunwest Water and Electric Co., Inc., a firm under a Sunwest Group of Companies headed by Elizaldy S. Co, the chairman of the board. It is adjacent to the Misibis Residential Resort, Sunwest’s resort venture.

In a press conference after a groundbreaking rites, Co told the local media that the power project had already started. “The wind and solar plants could be completed by December 2008 but the mini-hydro project is expected to be finished in the of next year, He said.

Co revealed that the Misibis power project is a 100% Filipino-owned company. When completed, the combined power plant can generate 2.7 megawatts, enough to supply the energy requirement of Cagraray including Misibis.

Asked for his message, Secretary Reyes said: “We have to congratulate Mr. Elizaldy Co for this very firm and resonant support and confidence in our economy.”

“It is very laudable to have Filipino investors investing in projects of this magnitude. Mr. Co has not only invested in resorts and real state but also in power generation especially in renewable energy,” he said.

Reyes said he has been very supportive of Co’s projects particularly in power generation. “We approved all his requests in record time and facilitated all the documents required to set up the plant, “ he added.

Co announced that Discovery Bay Resources, which manages the No. 1 resort in Boracay, and a chain of hotels, will be managing Misibis Residential Resorts and Hotel Venezia in Legazpi City.(BicolMail)
