  DBP-funded mini-hydro plant to provide electricity in Romblon
March 11, 2010

SAN FERNANDO, ROMBLON – The 900-kW Catingas mini-hydro power plant was inaugurated by officials of DBP and local officials of Romblon during simple ceremonies last March 4, 2010 in this seaside town in Sibuyan Island, Romblon.

Using the vast potential of the Cantingas River as the source of hydropower, the mini-hydro power plant is expected to address the increasing demand for electricity in the island of more than 50,000 residents. The project is also in consonance with the Bank’s thrust to supporting new and renewable sources of energy that not only protect the environment through reduced greenhouse gas emissions but are also cheap and sustainable.

The Cantingas mini-hydro power plant will enable the Romblon Electric Cooperative (ROMELCO) to supply round-the-clock electricity to residents and business establishments in the entire island of Sibuyan.In the past, the island’s three municipalities- San Fernando, Magdiwang and Cadijiocan- relied on two 600-kW diesel generators that can only provide electricity for 18 hours.

DBP senior vice presidents Brillo Reynes and Cresenciana Bundoc joined Romblon Governor Natalio Beltran III and Representative Eleandro Jesus Madrona in inaugurating the mini-hydro power project.

According to Bundoc, the mini-hydro power plant is a testament to DBP’s commitment to improving the lives of Filipinos. On the other hand, Representative Madrona said that the provincial government of Romblon, together with ROMELCO, is looking forward to tapping the mini-hydro power plant in providing electricity to the other islands of the province.
