The Philippines has one of the highest power rates in the whole world. Antique I believe has higher than average rates due to the long transmission lines that snake through Iloilo-Antique mountains. Just imagine the amount of power loss! There is a glint of hope...as power is coming from a sustainable source. The hydro power plant in Bugasong is about to be completed, and Anteco will be the beneficiary! I say glint of hope because we don't really know how much they will charge for each kilowatt it can generate. At least there will be locally generated power...better than nothing. Here's hoping it will bring positive results!
