Pineda, investors eye independent energy source

Pampanga Governor Lilia “Nanay Pineda on Monday met with some investors from Davao City to talk about putting up Liquefied Natural Gas plants in the province and in the surrounding areas, and the development of the cacao program in the province.

Philip Dizon, aide of Mindanao Cacao Center (MCC) proprietor Sonny Dizon, said the group of investors are looking forward to partner with the provincial government of Pampanga in setting up an independent source of energy.

“This will be good for the province especially that we are connected to the Grid [National Grid Corporation of the Philippines]. Lagi tayong yellow alert lately, at makakatulong ito sa Grid lalo na hindi na tayo makikihati sa supply ng kuryente kapag independent na tayo,” he said.

The investors from Davao, led by Sonny Dizon, hope to help Pampanga reach its goals of future development starting with its independence to its source of energy.
