Two barangays in San Carlos endorse coal-fired power plant
SAN Carlos City Vice Mayor Renato Gustilo revealed yesterday that two barangays in the city have expressed their support on the coal-fired power plant.
Gustilo said the village councils of Barangay Punaw and Barangay Palampas have passed a
resolution posing no objection to the coal-fired power plant for as long as it follows the standard set by the government especially by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
He also said that members of the San Carlos City Council have already conducted a study tour at some coalfired power plants in the country and that based on their observation, SMC Power Holdings which plans to construct a 300megawatt coal-fired power plant in the city is also following the standard set by the government.
