President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. recently met with the officials of a renewable energy firm in Isabela to discuss the 440-megawatt peak Isabela Power Project.
The Politiko met with the representatives of the San Ignacio Energy Resources Development Corp. (SIERDC) to iron out details about the project that is expected to contribute to the government’s efforts to promote the use of renewable energy.
Presidential Communications Office Secretary Cheloy Garafil reported that the company is expected to start the construction next year on a 400-hectare land in Ilagan City, Isabela. The chosen location is currently being used for sugarcane and bioethanol production.
The facility is expected to commence operations by 2025 and is pegged to generate about 700 gigawatt-hours per year, equivalent to the electricity consumption of around one million households.
