Cordillera - A solar power plant that could be able to generate 5 megawatts is soon to rise in the province of Kalinga. 

A leading global solar power company, Sunpower Renewable Energy Corporation (SREC) has been eyeing the province of Kalinga to put up a solar power plant, according to Tabuk city Mayor Darwin Estrañero during an executive meeting last Month.

"Through solar energy, not only will electricity prices get cheaper, it does not produce any greenhouse gases making it pollution free," Estrañero added.

He said that the Tabuk city government is ready to issue SREC business and building permits after being endorse by the Province Board of Kalinga and submit the construction plan to the Department of Energy for approval.
