c. Wind
Several wind potential areas in the region are being considered under the Wind Investment Promotion Round. These include potential sites in the following areas: (i) Caticlan, Aklan (10 MW); (ii) Pandan, Aklan (20 MW); (iii) San Remigio, Antique (20 MW); (iv) San Carlos, Negros Occidental (30 MW). A potential area in Dumangas, Iloilo is also presently being considered.

A. ENERGY SITUATIONER
A.1 ENERGY RESOURCES

a. Geothermal
As early as 1992, the Philippine National Oil Company-Energy Development Corporation (PNOC-EDC) has initiated geo-scientific and other exploratory activities in Mt. Mandalagan and Mt. Kanlaon, which came to be known as the Northern Negros geothermal project. This led to the awarding of a service contract to PNOC-EDC on March 24, 1994 to undertake the development of geothermal prospects in the said area. To date, this 40-MW Northern Negros geothermal power plant is targeted for commissioning in 2007. Geothermal prospects in Mambucal, Murcia, Negros Occidental for non-power applications are being offered for private sector investment under the Philippine Energy Contracting Round (PECR) 2005.

d. Other Sources
The exploration, development and production of a prospective coal area in Calatrava, Negros Occidental is currently being offered under the 2005 PECR.

A.2 b. Hydropower
Hydropower resource is likewise abundant in the region. Currently, there are four existing microhydropower plants operating in the region since 1996, with a total installed capacity of 9 kilowatts (kW). These micro-hydro power facilities, used primarily for REGIONAL ENERGY PROFILE Region VI – Western Visayas
