Brownouts back again
Just more than a week after its turbocharger was finally repaired, the 3.6-megawatt bunker-fuel generator of the Catanduanes Power Generation, Inc. (CPGI) is set to undergo preventive maintenance shutdown this week, with the island set to suffer several days of brownouts. The First Catanduanes…

Yes he truly is from Payo. Had it not been for the emergency call slip for a shooting of a film, Payo had him as a guest for the fiesta affairs and also to visit his families of Velasco and Quintana.

Jim Reyes commented on article Catanduanes tourism, where to?
I totally agree with you sir on your opinion on tourism. It is basically all lip service from our leaders probably in aid of election in 2016. As what you said this a private sector driven industry and without any active plans or marketing strategy this will remain dreams forever. There was a tourism summit in Albay just recently what have we learned from there?

Siguro because of its huge delegation and scope this was never touch but with the presence of the tourism leaders national and regional baka informally na touch or nai lobby man lang...Cheers!

Mayor Obet Fernandez has in his list 9 potential tourist spot for development. Don't know if this was presented and noticed in that summit and or ever get potential funding in the near future. Anyone who have idea may we be updated po. Salamat

I have been going the rounds and can see half the price of 85k pesos. My suggestion is for the LGU to initiate few lamp post for the people to see this is reality, enthusiasm will follow and eventually passion. With a sincere support from the LGU, I can see donors coming in to offer help and get a dip of the existing problem of the province. The PCES building in Payo did not even come from Dept of Education nor from the LGU but from the people. I am hopeful this can be replicated. How about LGU leading this

Hi Jim, I support your idea of solar streetlights. However, we may also consider solar streetlights are still expensive at P85,000/lampost (including batteries). Although, since 2010, we observed improvements in terms of price (downtrend) due to increasing competition among suppliers and improving efficiency in lighting technology.

dapat ganito ang gawin sa kontrata ng solar: 1. Power purchase agreement- Hindi bibilhin ang buong sistema ng solar kundi bibilhin lamang ang kuryente na gagamitin, hindi yung mage-generate. Walang gamit kapag walang pasok ang kapitolyo. 2. Dapat ang solar proponent ang magmaintain ng solar PV. 3. Dapat ang solar proponent, mayron nang previous experience of the same project.

Available capacity therefore can be used for households with minimum brownout situation and you make your stakeholders a little bit relieved. Managing the power crisis of the grid is now less of a burden. This is a direct answer to the issue of COAL proposal . Renewable energy exist and works. The only problem I see is , since people will directly donate solar post there will be no SOP and With SOP in mind I am concern this will not get support.

I have a simple solution to make in lighting up the province. 1. Each municipalities to initiate installation of few solar post in strategic areas of the town. 2. Open up a program " ADOPT A SOLAR POST " to the people . 3. LGU to come up with the resolution on specification of the solar street post and designated areas. What will this program bring? 1. People empowerment 2. You have a lighted community even with your FICELCO problems. 3. Load will be reduced and therefore available capacity

My Dad was a victim too 2 years ago in the same area, ganito din nagyari sa kanya pati sa mga kasamahan nya. Sana ma imbestigahan kung sino ang mga magnanakaw na to at makulong. Kawawa naman po ang mga masisipag nating kababanwang negosyante. Please, police force, NBI, etc... paki investigate po.

Peter Buchner commented on article Gov. Wong dares OIC-PD to act vs. illegal activities
I think important for the Pepole of Catanduanes is that the Gov. Wong install some generators so that are no more Brown outs in Catanduanes and beside also to secure that the Pepole of Catanduanes are provide with a good health care and continius to be able to use and have water supply. Thats for me important things but until now no Governor was care about it,sorry to say that.
