Bulalacao ready by 2018

Local renewable energy developer Philcarbon Inc. will be ready with its 33.4-megawatt (MW) wind project in Oriental Mindoro by 2018, a top company official said yesterday.
Philcarbon president Ruth Yu-Owen said that its P3.43-billion Bulalacao wind power project is now being eyed to start construction by 2016.
She said that it would take about a year and a half to complete the project, therefore starting commercial operations by mid-2018.
Once completed, the wind facility is estimated to generate 73.146 gigawatt hours of wind energy.
The Bulalacao wind facility will be situated in a site in the southern tip of Oriental Mindoro which Philcarbon cited as having strong and constant wind averaging at a speed of 8.2 meters per second.
The power to be generated by the wind facility will be offered to interested electric cooperatives in the area.
