GenSan co-op, AboitizPower ink pact

South Cotabato II Electric Cooperative Inc., which serves General Santos City and its surrounding areas, is pushing to balance its generation mix after signing a 20-megawatt renewable energy supply agreement with AboitizPower subsidiary Hedcor.

With Hedcor’s 69-MW Manolo Fortich hydro power plant in Bukidnon wrapping up its construction, SOCOTECO II is looking forward to receiving their energy supply by 2018.

“We are excited with this brand-new partnership with AboitizPower. For many years now, we have witnessed the company’s commitment in helping us provide the best service to our members-consumers” said SOCOTECO II General Manager Bong Sotelo.

The cooperative is currently serving the municipalities of Sarangani, Tupi, and Polomolok in South Cotabato and General Santos City.

SOCOTECO II is the latest addition to the list of electric cooperatives in Mindanao who have chosen AboitizPower’s “cleanergy” supply through its subsidiary Hedcor Bukidnon, and started their shift to a more balanced energy supply mix. 

Hedcor Bukidnon has also signed renewable energy supply agreements with Zamboanga del Sur Electric Cooperatives 1 and 2, Zamboanga del Norte Electric Cooperative, Misamis Occidental I Electric Cooperative, Siargao Electric Cooperative, Bukidnon Second Electric Cooperative, and  Surigao del Sur 1 Electric Cooperative, Inc.

Hedcor’s 69-MW hydropower facility located in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon is now on its commissioning phase.
