I really appreciate if this project will be realized because may be it can solve the scarcity of energy in the province and i know pretty well that using wind mill means cheaper.

Danish wind mill technology is a little expensive. There are available alternatives, such as the ones produced by China. A 2 MW wind turbine built by Haizhuang Windpower Equipment Co, cost around 12 million RMB, a 2 MW wind farm cost around 20 million RMB (1 RMB = 6.75 PhP). You do the math!

I really think that windmills are potential in bohol as a sustainable supply of electric power, moreover, it's nature friendly.....i hopr that this would happen in not long time....i'm waiting...i mean...we're waiting....

There are many small wind turbines available in the market and would be a good fit in Calape, Bohol. However, the trick with non-grid connected wind turbines is harnessing the electricity. You would need a battery to store the energy made from the Wind energy. A great way to be self sufficient and a clean renewable energy free living.

Hi, I have a question. Is there any way a mini turbine be installed in my yard facing the ocean for my own electricity consumption? If its possible, I would like to learn about it. By the way, I live in Calape, Bohol. Thanks and best regards. Helen

Hi, I have a question. Can a mini turbine be installed in my yard to supply electricity to my house? I live in a small island in Calape, Bohol. If it is possible, I would like to learn about it. Thanks.

This a very awesome project. I am very proud of the people who mastermind in this project being a boholano residing in Florida is just I felt exciting to see this website erected those spinning wind mill. Am very grateful also to the people who choose bohol to invest this project as i felt bohol is moving forward to a very promising future to see great innovations. Certainly i am hundred percent support this project. God Bless you all.

I hope this project pushes through. But this will only happen if we have local government officials pushing for it too. I have seen the first windfarm in Southeast Asia (not just the Philippines) located in Bangui Bay in Ilocos Norte (North Luzon). If I'm not mistaken, it provides 40megawatts to the area. It's a sight to behold as well. Tourists (like me) actually go there just to behold the awesome huge turbines. In effect, it has also become a tourist attraction.

With the widespread concerns of global warming nowadays, and issue of continue rising of oils prices, windmills are a great thing and I think this project should be realized in Bohol, and other parts of the Philippines. its very friendly to the environment and its great to utilize an existing natural resource that is always there (the wind).

Very positive information and wind power should definitely be utilized. Any non-fossil fuel energy source needs to be invested in. The pressure on government officials to invest in this technology needs to be greater than the pressure to keep things as they are in the interest of short term profit-making. Oil companies and petroleum refiners are not going to be happy about losing sales in the Philippines.

At long last we are starting to tap what we have alot in our country. Thanks to you guys. I know you also consider to tap solar energy which is also very abundant. I just saw on TV the small wind turbines to power atleast lamposts. Please have a program for home/personal use. Salamat po & mabuhay kayo!

Great project! i think there should be more projects like this. i'd like to ask whether there are plans to construct a wind farm in negros occidental. if there are, i totally support the project. hopefully, there will be political support for such a project in my province. more power to you guys. keep up the good work.

It's environmentally great and with the energy price cpontinually increases...Is there a program for backyard wind farm?I have read that in some countries they can build their own wind drive turbines in their community.Will that be possible here in our country?

We needed this wake up call in what concerns electricity. Lets use this technology to prevent useless polution.

PLEASE do this, we need it here desparately. in Naga near Cebu the Korean investor is looking to build yet another DINOSAUR power plant running off COAL of all smokey things in an already polluted to death air environment. Cebu's low mountain peaks are great for wind power as they're good for nothing else but a nice view. We're already planning to solarize and pneumatize a small island nearby for our own development in the next 5 years.
