The Project

Benguet Electric Cooperative, Inc. (BENECO) has planned to set up a Run-of-River type hydroelectric power generation facility along Brgy Sebang, Buguias, Benguet, in accordance with the Renewable Energy Law of the Philippines.

The first modest project of BENECO, DOE granted a Hydro Service Contract (HSC No.2009-10-30) to develop and operate a 3MW run-of-river minihydro power generation plant at Man-asok River in Buguias.

After securing the needed FPIC from the BADANG IP Group and consent from the LGUs, the groundbreaking was finally made on November 18, 2016.

Project Objectives

  • Provide low cost electricity

  • Provide a "game changer" model of local, sustainable energy-based community development which will lead to financial and economic freedom or rural communities via partial ownership of the asset forever.

  • Promote the development of sustainable hydro power resources

  • Provide employment opportunities for rural communities during construction and operation of the power plant

Benefits

  • Provide low cost electricity

  • Encourage socio-economic development in host communities

  • Provide basic energy needs to improve living conditions

  • Develop an environmentally, economically and socially sound power generation project

  • Develop the technological capability of rural communities relative to local hydro resource projects

  • Reduce dependence on imported energy sources

  • Reduce CO2 emissions and improve world climate

Project Location

The project area is located within the Sitio Alapang, Brgy Sebang, Buguias Benguet, about three hundred thirty (350) km north of Metro Manila.

Buguias Municipality is in the northern most part of Benguet. It has temperate climate, meandering rivers and magnificent scenic spots. Tourism contributes much to its economy. Buguias leading agricultural activity is vegetable production. Major crops produced are white potatoes, beans, peas, strawberries, cabbage, lettuce and, carrots. with the fabulous rivers. The target rivers, Loo and Man-asok currently serve as potable and irrigation water supply. Installation of a hydro-electric power supply in the area will provide adequate and reliable power supply to the area and thus provide impetus for more income generating businesses driving economic development of the municipality.
