just an observation, is this thread necessary here? would this be better in country-specific section. Camarines is not exactly an urban conglomeration.

it's not in the same standing as Metro Manila or other world capitals, or that there are noteworthy projects like a supertall project that will warrant its own thread in the City/Metro compilations section, that's why im trying to say.

As long as there are urban developments, infrastructure projects and construction activities, it's fine...

Massive deployment of solar plants seen
Quote:
MANILA, Philippines—Local solar power producers are just waiting for word from regulators before they undertake massive construction of generating facilities that may provide the three main grids with an additional 350 megawatts over the next three years.

According to Philippine Solar Power Association (PSPA) president Tetchi Cruz-Capellan, members of the solar power industry plan to generate a combined 125 MW this year, 130 MW in 2012, and another 95 MW by 2013.

Depending on the capacity of a facility, investments in a solar power plant may range from $3.70 per watt (or $3.7 million per MW) to as high as $4.90 per watt. Based on economies of scale, a smaller facility will require a bigger investment, Capellan explained.

Industry leader told reporters that the PSPA is optimistic that the feed-in-tariff (FIT) rates will be issued within the first half of the year, after the National Renewable Energy Board announced that it would recommended to regulators the approval of FIT rates no later than March 31.

“Given the 90-day review process of our regulators, the industry is optimistic that the FIT will be in place no later than June 30,” Capellan said. “Having said this, we anticipate massive deployment of solar power in 2011. Solar energy is the only renewable energy technology capable of deploying (power) plants in less than a year.”

FIT rates determine the economic and financial viability of renewable energy projects.

Under the feed-in tariff system, developers are assured of future cash flows, as electricity end-users will be charged fixed amounts to cover production of energy from renewable sources. With this in place, utilities may spread the cost of clean power among customers.

While investors are waiting for the issuance of FIT rates, most solar power producers are already preparing and constructing their respective plants, Capellan said. Those that have already put up their own solar power facilities are planning to sell their output to the wholesale electricity spot market (WESM), which is operational in Luzon and Visayas.

The Lopez-led First Philec Solar Corp. targets to sell the output from its 180-kilowatt solar facility to WESM, Capellan said. Located in the First Philippine Industrial Park in Tanauan, Batangas, First Philec’s solar facility is considered as the country’s first rooftop-installed solar facility of “utility scale.”

Other investors that have begun preparations for their respective facilities include South Korean listed firm Youil Ensys, Filipino-Japanese venture Eco-Merge Philippines, Dutch-based SunConnex Projects BV, and local firm Cagayan Electric Power and Light Co. Inc. (Cepalco).

Youil Ensys wants to invest roughly P7.2 billion to put up two solar power plants with a combined capacity of 40 MW in the Visayas.

Eco-Merge will similarly invest around P7.4 billion for four facilities to be put up in Camarines Sur, Negros Occidental, Agusan del Norte and Zamboanga. The projects are expected to generate a total of 41 MW.

Cepalco, for its part, will put up more solar plants to produce another 30 MW over the next few years, to add to its existing 1-MW solar facility.

Peña and Acting Provincial Administrator Fermin Mabulo unanimously passed CamSur’s hefty P4.511 Billion 2011 Annual Investment Plan designed to sustain and enhance the development momentum the province gained in the last few years that catapulted CamSur to a world-class province among the top ten richest local government units of the Philippines, an international tourism destination and a center of international sports.

PILI, Camarines Sur – To take advantage of the development momentum the province has gained in the last few years, the Provincial Development Council passed a comprehensive and ambitious development agenda with a grand total of P4,511,854,781.76 focused on agricultural programs and projects.

Korean firm to harness power from Naga garbage
Quote:
NAGA City – Garbage problem in the city and adjacent towns is expected to ease with the proposed construction of a power plant by a Korean company using trash.

Last Jan.18, Mayor John Bongat said officials of CJ Global and former City Mayor Jesse M. Robredo signed a Memorandum of Agreement which was ratified by the Sangguniang Panglunsod.

CJ Global will use German technology to construct the $76 million (P3 billion) plant dubbed “Waste to Energy Facility” using 200 tons of garbage collected daily to produce 19 megawatts of electricity.

Bongat said the project is in consonance with Republic Act 9003 which requires LGUs to adapt a Material Recovery Facility and close open garbage dumps. Few LGUs, however, were able to comply.

Last week, Bongat said a symbolic groundbreaking was held on a lot in Barangay Balatas. It was attended by Interior Secretary Jesse M. Robredo, Energy Undersecretary Jorge Yorobe, DENR Bicol director Marcus Fragada, and city officials.

Bongat said safety nets will be provided by the Korean firm in processing biodegradable and nondegradable garbage in enclosed and concreted facilities to prevent garbage leak.

The city government will allow neighboring towns to dump their garbage in the city dump to sustain the 2000-ton garbage daily requirement as the city collects only 60 to 80 tons a day.

The city government is negotiating for a 15-hectare lot of Fil-Chinese mall owner Robert Obiedo in Barangay San Isidro for the power plant.

The project is the biggest investment in the city after the P900-million Shoemart complex built in 2009.

HISTORIC MOA SIGNING
Quote:


Principals of the Counter-Parting Program spearheaded by CamSur Governor LRay Villafuerte (top photo, left) sign the Memorandum of Agreement that establishes the framework and mechanics of a cost sharing scheme between the national government and LGUs to construct school buildings in areas experiencing acute classroom shortages nationwide. Top photo also shows DBM Secretary Florencio Abad, DepEd Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro, LPP President Gov. Alfonso Umali and LPP Chairman Luis “Chavit” Singson.

DepEd, DBM, LPP forge counterpart program to build schools nationwide
Quote:
PILI, Camarines Sur --- An executive session of the heads of the Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and the League of Provinces of the Philippines held Thursday, February 3, reviewed and signed for implementation a counterpart financing scheme to build school buildings in local government units with classroom shortages nationwide.

Dubbed the Counter-Parting Program, the novel and innovative project is actually a cost-sharing brainchild of LPP Executive Vice President CamSur Gov. LRay Villafuerte whereby participating LPP members shall share cost of building new classrooms particularly in many areas experiencing acute dearth of classrooms.

It will be recalled that after Gov. Villafuerte assumed his third and final term and elected EVP of the LPP, the official organization of provincial executives, he called on President Benigno Aquino, Jr. and presented the concept of a counterpart arrangement for the national government and LGUs to forge collaborative endeavors to address national concerns.

The Counter-Parting Program is a direct off-shoot of that presentation and a proposal initiated by Gov. Villafuerte at the LPP level, for which he was specifically cited for his initiative and innovative approach to local governance by the President in his very first State of the Nation Address (SONA).

Under the program, participating LGUs may provide the initial 50% of cost of construction of school buildings from their Special Education Fund (SEF), Local Development Fund (LDG), Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) or other internal sources, and after completion of the initial phase the national government will contribute the remaining cost from regular educational allocations of the national budget.

The formal signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) establishing the framework and mechanics of the Counter-Parting Program was held at the DepEd central office in Pasig City with the principal agencies represented by DepEd Secretary Bro. Armin A. Luistro FSC, DBM Secretary Florencio B. Abad and LPP President Governor Alfonso V. Umali, witnessed by other major supporters of the program led by Gov. Villafuerte.

The program will be initially implemented in 20 pilot provinces including CamSur.

Gov. Villafuerte’s participatory financing scheme was very well met even from its inception because of its far-ranging affectivity and application that could be applied not only for schools but also for infrastructure, health, agriculture and other national concerns.
