Hydropower project to rise in Isabela
Rio Norte Hydro Corporation (RNHC) launched the project by signing a memorandum of agreement with the local governments of Isabela and Echague in ceremonies held here on Wednesday (Oct. 10.
The power project is designed to annually supply 85 million kilowatts of energy to the Isabela cities of Cauayan and Santiago, and the municipalities of Alicia, Angadanan, Cabatuan, Cordon, Echague, Jones, Luna, Ramon, Reina Mercedes, San Agustin, San Guillermo, San Isidro, and San Mateo.
The system is considered one of the most environment-friendly energy methods available as it harnesses the natural flow of the water to generate electricity without greenhouse emissions, said Clarence Jandoc, RNHC vice president for legal and government affairs.
“We will also upgrade the existing provincial road into an ‘all-weather road’ that will extend into a municipal road going toward the majestic Ilaguen River,” Jandoc added.
RHNC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Citicore Power, Inc. (CPI), one of the renewable energy companies in the country./muf
