ORMOC CITY-Some delegates of the Visayas Area Business Conference (VABC) got oriented on how clean energy is produced by Energy Development Corporation (EDC) from the company’s geothermal plants in Leyte.
The plant visit was part of the activities that the conference organizers lined up for delegates.
Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez, in his message at the opening of the VABC, cited EDC’s geothermal plants as one of the major factors why the city is being increasingly preferred by investors as they are assured of clean, reliable and uninterruptible power supply.
He added that the geothermal plants and the way its operations are harmonized with nature are also a potential ecotourism destination.
Geothermal is the only renewable energy that is available 24/7, all year round.
The Leyte geothermal plants with an installed capacity of 701 MW supply clean reliable power not only to Leyte but also to Visayas and Luzon. (PR)
