“Upon reviewing the Joint Committees hereby recommend that the said resolution endorsing exploration, assessment and harnessing, development utilization, and commercialization 95 MW solar projects is declared valid,” he stated.

Energy Logics was granted the exclusive rights to develop the Ilocos Norte sun power project and Burgos-Pasuquin wind project in 2011, by the Philippine government.

However, the start of the solar project was delayed due to the pandemic and the issuance of endorsement solutions.

Energy Logics had originally planned to build a 132 MW wind farm in Burgos, and a 100 MW solar power plant at Pasuquin.

However, the solar project was moved to Tanap village in Burgos. It will soon be extended to Pasuquin.
