Trans-Asia ramps up spending on Philippine wind project

Trans-Asia ramps up spending on Philippine wind project | ECO Enclave | Eco REnergy | Scoop.it
Trans-Asia is boosting its spending to get ahead of schedule on its 54-MW San Lorenzo wind power project in Guimaras island in the Philippines In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, Trans-Asia Oil and Energy Development Corporation said...
Vina's insight:

Excerpt:

It was one of the projects that had long-been delayed over feed-in tariff uncertainties but that received approval by the Philippines’ Department of Energy in May, along with another 154.5-MW of wind projects. These approvals are the first to be given under the country’s feed-in tariff (FiT) scheme for renewable energy.

 

 The policy laid down by energy secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla is that the FiT incentive will go to developers who finish project construction and grid connection, first. The wind sector is racing to finish projects so they can be included in the first 200-MW to which the government will allocate FITs.

Those first to get authorization for construction with Trans-Asia includes Energy Development Corp’s USD300 million 87-MW wind farm in Burgos, Ilocos Norte Province; Alternergy Wind One Corp’s 67.5-MW project in Pililla, Rizal Province.
