The Mindanao Power Crisis is a hot issue today that we should not missed. As Mindanaons, we need to know what is the cause of this problem. Is there really a shortage in electricity? Is this a marketing ploy? Or simply a diversion on what's really happening in Mindanao?
There are two opposing solutions proposed by the Private sector and the Environmentalist/Civic Organizations. These are the Privatization of power producers & distributors (private sector); and the rehabilitation of hydro power plants in Mindanao and the promotion of renewable energy sources (environmentalist). The first Mindanao Power Summit held last Friday, April 13, 2012 at Davao City was succesful. It was attended by Pres. Benigno Aquino III to present the solutions to the public. Here are the videos from PTVPhilippines.
