Neltex Development Co. Inc., the country’s largest plastic pipe manufacturer, tapped Energy Development Corp.’s Bacon-Manito Geothermal Project in the Bicol region to supply electricity for its factory in DasmariƱas, Cavite.

“With its partnership with EDC, Neltex aims to make its production sustainable and safe for the environment, making it the first in the industry to be powered by renewable energy,” EDC said in a statement.

Geothermal energy is the only renewable energy source that is baseload which means it can run uninterrupted 24/7.
