Dads wants updates on Asin power plants privatization
by PIO release

The city council invited members of the Special Bids and Awards Committee (SBAC) and other officers responsible in the bidding and privatization of the Asin minihydro power plants to update the members on why the project has not been implemented.

The resolution authored by Councilor Peter Fianza stated there is a need for the body to be apprised on the status of the privatization project and other possible recommendations to have the renewable energy plants operational and avoid further losses for the city government.

Earlier, the local legislative body passed Resolution 219, s. 2011 approving the terms of reference and pro-forma contract for the privatization of the Asin minihydro power plants.

The city council also approved Resolution 37, s. 2017 that confirmed the Jan. 30 memorandum of agreement signed by the local government and Kaltimex Energy Philippines, Inc. on the rehabilitation, upgrading, expansion, operation, and management of the Asin power plants.

However, despite the award and the issuance of the notice to proceed to the winning bidder, the contract has not been realized to the prejudice of the local government.

Instead of earning, the city has been subsidizing the preservation and maintenance of the existing facilities since Oct. 12, 2012 when the Benguet Electric Cooperative disconnected it from its system after the Energy Regulatory Commission issued a cease-and-desist order for the local government to stop the operation of the power plants.

Beneco has signified its intention to partner with the local government, the Tuba municipal government and the indigenous peoples of the host communities to make the renewable energy plants operational by providing quality power at cheaper cost.
