Smooth Operation: The first 100 days of Sabangan Hydro

  • Hedcor Sabangan has generated a total of 15M kWh for the Luzon grid
  • The hydro company continues to support the needs of host communities in education, environment, and enterprise development

More than three months after the start of its commercial operations, Hedcor’s Sabangan has generated a total of 15 million kWh to the Luzon Grid.

“With the regular monitoring of our electro-mechanical components, this ensures continuous operation and 100% plant availability to meet the demands of our customers,” shares Sabangan plant manager Berny Zamoranos.

As host to the power plant facility, the province will benefit from taxes, shares and royalties from the generation. Alongside this, Hedcor has been supportive to the needs of the host communities in terms of education, environment and enterprise development.

Last June, the company signed in two new scholars from Sabangan. Berlyn Jane Kigi-i and Mayrelle Licayo of Barangay Namatec are now part of the growing list of Hedcor scholars across the country. Hedcor allotted an amount of P120,000.00 for its Sabangan scholars this year to fund the college education of these deserving students including full payment of tuition, monthly allowance and book fees.

From the time of its construction to operation, Hedcor Sabangan planted a total of 101,752 trees in the municipality and nearby towns, and in support of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ Adopt-a-River project, Hedcor adopts the Chico River for river clean-up activities.
