Mayor to hold another forum
on 60MW geothermal project
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE & JUDY F. PARTLOW

Mayor Edgar Teves of Valencia, Negros Oriental, is proposing another public hearing on a larger scale on the proposed 60-megawatt geothermal power expansion project of the Energy Development Corporation.

Teves said yesterday the planned public consultation would have to be after this month because of the town's upcoming fiesta celebration on October 12.

The public hearing will be for a larger audience this time, to get a clearer perspective and consensus of the Valencia residents on the proposal of the EDC to expand its geothermal power production by 60MW at its existing Palinpinon geothermal plants. .
