“Our 236,000 consumers in our franchise areas will benefit from sustainable and reliable power.  With baseload power, our region’s economic growth and competitiveness will further improve.  We are happy with this deal and look forward to a longer partnership with EDC,”   INEC Board President Reynaldo Lazo added.


EDC remains the country’s leading producer of geothermal energy with total installed capacity of 1,169 MW in Leyte, Negros Islands, Bicol and North Cotabato.  In keeping with its mission to develop only clean and renewable energy projects, EDC also owns and operates the 150-MW wind farm in Burgos, Ilocos Norte and has 60% equity in the 132-MW Pantabangan-Masiway hydropower plants in Nueva Ecija.
