Three towns situated in the northern part of Iloilo Province are being eyed as sources of renewable energy – specifically the towns of Ajuy, Carles, and Concepcion. Moreover, the Provincial Government of Iloilo headed by Governor Arthur Defensor Jr, inked a memorandum of agreement with the Department of Energy (DOE) for the Development of Renewable Energy Applications Mainstreaming and Market Sustainability (DREAMS) Project.
Department of Energy’s DREAM Project, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Global Environment Facility (GEF) are eyeing the three aforementioned towns.
