WITH THE possible health hazards from coal waste as well as environmental consequences from using it as a source of energy, Ilocos Norte Governor Ma. Imelda Josefa “Imee” R. Marcos is set to strengthen provincial efforts to ban the production and use of coal in Ilocos Norte. The province hosts the 150- Megawatt Burgos Wind Power Project of the Energy Development Corporation (EDC), the 81 MW Caparispisan Wind Power Station of Northern Luzon UPC Asia Corp., and the 52 MW Bangui Wind Power Project of Northwind Power and Development Corp. More recent developments are the 5 MW Agua Grande hydroelectric power plant in Pagudpud, and two solar farms: the 20 MW facility of Soleq Philippines Inc., and the 4.1 MW and 2.6 farms of the EDC.
