Summary

This project will rebuild a typhoon-damaged microhydro power plant to provide lighting and improve the livelihood of poor households on the Rapu-rapu island in Albay.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The 30 kW Binosawan microhydro project in Rapu-rapu island in Albay, Philippines was damaged by 2 supertyphoons - Milenyo and Reming last 2006, rendering it non-operational. Again, the 148 poor fishing households in Rapu-rapu had to resort to buying expensive batteries/diesel/oil for their energy needs - i.e., lighting and block ice for cold storage/preservation of their fish products. Large scale mining activities further exacerbates poverty conditions and adverse climate change impacts.

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will provide a clean, affordable, accessible, and renewable energy supply for the 22 fishing villages in Rapu-rapu island.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will improve the lives of households in the fishing villages, and support economic opportunities such as ice storage for fish, rice milling, copra drying and abaca stripping.
