Geothermal plant to provide ample electricity in Camiguin (Manila Bulletin)

A low enthalpy geothermal project (LEGP) will soon be undertaken in the island province of Camiguin, which is known for its seven volcanoes and several volcanic domes.

Sources for the LEGP were discovered by officials and technical men of the Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB) of the Department of Energy (DOE) who conducted a series of exploration and examination in areas of Mambajao and Catarman towns and other neighboring areas of that same province.

The DOE officials identified Camiguin as one of the potential areas for locally funded LEGP.
