Baguio earns more from city-owned Asin hydros

BAGUIO CITY (Sept. 27) — City Administrator Peter Fianza claimed the city could earn more from the Asin Hydroelectric Plants (AHP) if it is run by the city government.

In a letter to Mayor Reinaldo A. Bautista Jr., the Technical Working Group (TWG) disclosed that the mini-hydros squeezed out 752, 623-kilowatt-hours (Kwh) from August 27 to September 26, which Fianza said amounts to P 3 million excluding power transformation losses to be provided by the Benguet Electric Cooperative. # Isagani S.
