‘DOE okay to hasten
Negros hydro power’


The Department of Energy has approved and is expected to release river service contracts soon to allow the start of a pre-feasibility study for the construction of hydro electric power plants early next year in the San Carlos and Don Salvador Benedicto areas in Negros Occidental, Jose Ma. Valencia, chief of staff of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said yesterday.

Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said bureaucratic red tape, especially by the DOE in the previous administration, had delayed the development of hydro electric power in Negros Occidental.

The process for setting up of power plants should be hastened before it is too late, he said.moremoremore
