Basic energy in the form of renewable energy project has been conceived by the Alternergy Holdings Corp. in collaboration of listed Basic Energy Corp. has started assessment energy from wind power.

It was learned from the Alternergy chief technical director that the corporation has recently installed an 80-meter tall meteorological mast in Alabat, Quezon province intended”. . .to measure the wind resource in the area. The mast “will validate the strength and capacity of the wind resource over the next two years. ”The Alabat meteorological mast “has more than seven meters per second average wind speed, similar to the wind resource in Rizal province where the corporation has a 54-megawatt (MW) Pililla wind farm is located.”
“Aternergy aims to develop up to 1,370 MW of additional wind, off-shore wind, solar, and run-f-river hydro projects in the next five years”, per its Chairman.

On the part of Basic Energy, “. . . in a stock exchange filing, said wholly owned subsidiary Mabini Energy Corp. has officially commenced the wind resource assessment campaign after successfully installing and testing the meteorological mast facility at Mabini, Batangas for its potential 50-MW Mabini wind energy project.” Furthermore, it was learned that “a favorable one-year period would lead to the micro sitting process to determine the wind turbine locations, as well as its design. ”Also, Basic Energy management has allotted P6.35 million to explore areas for wind power development, and to deliver energy to the grid by 2027.”

May I suggest to both Alternergy and Basic Energy corporations to explore areas further south in the Visayas particularly Eastern Samar’s Guiuan coastal town.
