Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) said that the 600-kilowatt (kW) solar power project in Tawi Tawi, Philippines will be operational by November.


Maria Belen Sunga-Acosta, MinDA Chairperson, stated that the solar project in Sibuto (Tawi-Tawi) targets increasing economic activity, particularly in the seaweed farming communities.

“This will help the seaweed farmers as they can now sell semi-processed seaweed products instead of raw materials which have a lower value. With the help of the facility, the farmers can produce quality products which can be exported to the European countries and our neighboring Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations),” Acosta said in a statement.

Acosta hopes that the solar project will lead to more processing facilities, as it will lower the costs of farmers and increase their income.

The project was coordinated with the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (partner agencies) and is expected to dramatically improve the electricity supply in the island region.

MinDA estimates that the project will generate 600kW of clean energy once it is completed.

MinDA’s hybrid solar/diesel technology was developed in partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Authority. This will allow for more hours of power.
