We could now see the whole structure of the New 164MW Coal Fired Power Plant in La Paz District, Iloilo City. The tall smoke stack was installed last month, and it’s quite tall! It’s easily the tallest man-made structure in Panay Island. If you notice closely the main structure looks like two smaller structures joined together, it’s actually because the power plant is composed of two separate smaller (82MW) power plants.
It seems that the power plant is on schedule with their target of opening (partially) by the end of 2010. Already, we could see that the big developments in the city (Megaworld, Plazuela de Iloilo, Ayala) are on the rise because of the promised lower electricity costs and improved reliability.
