A Chinese state-owned conglomerate is planning the development of another 100-megawatt photovoltaic electric power plant project in Currimao, Ilocos Norte. If successful, it would become the largest solar farm in the province next to Soleq Philippines Inc.’s 20-MW solar power farm also in Currimao. The Soleq solar power farm is a joint venture with the Ilocos Norte provincial government through a co-development agreement. To jump start the project, the Sangguniang Panlalwigan (SP) ratified a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the provincial government and the China Energy Equipment Co. Ltd.
