CAVITE Gov. Juanito Victor “Jonvic” Remulla Jr. and Batangas Gov. Hermilando “Dodo” Mandanas on Tuesday led the groundbreaking ceremony for the Maragondon 3 solar power plant in Maragondon, Cavite.

The 140MW solar PV power project is set to rise at the 70.7865 hectares property in barangays Pantihan 2 and 3 in Maragondon.

Also leading the groundbreaking was Katrina Razon, chairman of Solar Tanauan Corporation.

The construction of the solar power plant is targeted to be  completed  come December this year.

According to Maragondon Mayor Lawrence Arca, they are  happy that once again they will have a share not only in the tourism sector in Cavite and the neighboring provinces but also in the field of energy. 

“Just like the call and mandate of our President Bongbong Marcos regarding renewable energy and clean energy transition, I believe that this is the right time for all government agencies and even the private sector to help each other to promote various projects related to energy and other programs to prepare other resources that are currently gradually or slowly running out,” Arca said.

“Along with our local programs for the development of the citizens and additional job opportunities for the people of Maragondon, we are with you and with the help of God for the upliftment and advancement of the Philippines,” he added.

The Maragondon 3 power plant , which costs around $196.7 million is a ground-mounted solar project developed and owned by Solar Philippines Tanauan.
