BAGUIO CITY — The continous rise of the demand for electricity in the province of Benguet pushed Benguet Electric Cooperative (BENECO) to look for alternative sources of energy to meet the province’s supply of electricity through its minihydro project.
Gerardo Versoza, General Manager of BENECO said they are tapping two municipalities of Buguias and Tuba in Benguet for the said minihydro plants.
Mr.Versoza said once the minihydro plants are operational that would mean cheaper power costs for the consumers. The Department of Energy (DOE) has given the go signal to BENECO to start the exploration, research and feasibility study in these places where the mini-hydro plants are proposed to be set up. # nordis.net
