RP Energy rehabilitates Cawag Barangay Hall through ‘Kasangga Mo’

MANILA, Nov 10 (PNA) – Redondo Peninsula Energy, Inc. (RPE) has rehabilitated the “Cawag” City Hall in Subic through the “Kasangga Mo” program.

Aside from the rehabilitation of the structure, RPE has also installed new bulletin boards and a community board.

RP Energy Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) head Victor Persius Chan said, “This project is a partnership between RP Energy and Barangay Cawag. We hope that this initiative will help them in a more efficient and effective delivery of services to their constituents.”

”Kasangga Mo” aims to empower local government units by providing peace and order, but also includes capacity-building for local officials.

RP Energy is a consortium among Manila Electric Company (Meralco) PowerGen Corp., Aboitiz Power Corp. and Taiwan Cogeneration Corp.

The consortium will build a 600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant along the Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Zambales.

RP Energy noted that the power plant will help “augment the power supply in the Luzon grid.”

Earlier, Meralco senior vice president Angelito Lantin said the consortium targets to start the construction of the power plant by the first quarter of 2016, while its commercial operations is slated for the second half of 2019.

He added the project is actively seeking its financial closing. (PNA)
