The windswept town of Bangui, Ilocos Norte, on the northern end of Luzon Island, The Philippines, will become the site of the first wind farm in Southeast Asia – a major turning point in tapping the immense potential of renewable power sources in the region.
When was the first wind farm built in Southeast Asia?
But wind power is not just being developed in the Philippines, but is picking up speed throughout Asia. South Korea inaugurated its first wind farm in 2005.
Where can we find wind energy in the Philippines?
Some of the most recent developments are the Bangui Wind Farm, Burgos Wind Farm, and Caparispisan Wind Farm in Ilocos Norte, the Wind Energy Power System in Oriental Mindoro, San Lorenzo Wind Farm in Guimaras, Nabas Wind Farm in Aklan and Pililla Wind Farm in Rizal.
