Micro Hydro Power for 1,000 People in Philippines

Oct 18, 2010

Electricity vs. food

October 2010: For the last 6 months, food production and irrigation work have been given priority over electrical work.  In addition, the heavy rainy season has impeded access to the community for engineering work.   So there has been no progress on the electrical generation and distribution system.

Official commissioning of the electrical system is scheduled for November, and will be followed by a more in-depth report.

Thanks for your interest and support.
