How did BBM solved the power crisis?

Senator Bong Bong Marcos

Solving the Power Crisis

Bangui wind turbine
How it Started?

In the 1990s former Governor Ferdinand Marcos, Jr. aggressively pursued the development of a power plant in Ilocos Norte due to the poor quality of power provided by the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR).  Ilocos Norte is located at the end of the power grid that comes from Bauang, La Union which is a province away from Ilocos Norte, making the province most vulnerable to power outages. Poor quality of power discouraged investments in the province.

 How it works?

 Each wind turbine is capable of producing electricity up to a maximum capacity of 1.65MW, totaling to 24.75MW in all. They have three vertically oriented rotor blades on top of a 50m-high tubular tower. he wind turbines capture wind energy and transformed by electrical generators to be transformed into usable energy. The NorthWind Bangui Bay Project produces a total of 74,482MWh of electricity annually


Anti Air Pollution

The Northwind Bangui Bay Project approximates that 56,788tCO2e (tons of carbon dioxide equivalent) of Greenhouse Gases will be reduced per year for the duration of the project activity

Consumer Friendly

In 2006, the project produced a 5% discount of the weighted average price in the wholesale electricity spot market (WESM) or a generated savings of approximately USD1.4 million (PhP 70 million)

Who Started the Bangui Windmills?

Senator Bong  Bong Marcos started the Bangui windmills solving the power problem in Ilocos Norte. The technology that was used in this particular project was advance and was also used in Denmark. Generating power by harnessing the power of the wind is a big step towards solving the oil crisis problem. Oil as we all know is depleted and other sources of power should be tap in order to sustain our way of life. Another problem in using oil is pollution. Pollution in our environment, water and air. Not to mention the effects of oil in our ozone layer, that includes the  greenhouse effect and climate change.

We should find a leader who could think and act to answer the problem on oil. Former President Marcos has the Geothermal energy then.

 Just like his father Bong bong Marcos initiated  the Bangui windmills, both are power saver , consumer friendly and anti-pollution. How much money can we save from these technologies? How many lives can it save from pollution? And this technology contributes to the saving of ozone layer.
As I have said we need a leader like Bong Bong Marcos. We need someone who has the initiative to solve our future problems. We need someone who has the ability to make our country stand again. We need a leader who will steer us to economic growth. We need Bong Bong to continue this kinds of project that will help our economy rise again.

Bong Bong Marcos Power of Hydro, Power of the future

Magat Dam and  the Hydro power plant
Magat Dam is a large rock-fill dam in the island of Luzon in the Philippines. The dam is on the Magat River, a major tributary of Cagayan River. Construction of the dam started in 1975 and was completed in 1982. Magat Dam is one of the largest dams in the Philippines. It is a multi-purpose dam which is used primarily for irrigating about 85,000 hectares (210,000 acres) of agricultural lands,[1] flood control, and power generation through the Magat Hydroelectric Power Plant.
The construction and appurtenant structures was authorized by P.D. 693 signed on May 7, 1975 by the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos. The Magat Dam was constructed in 1978 and inaugurated by the Late Pres. Ferdinand E. Marcos on October 27, 1982 and started operations in 1983

Bangui Wind Turbine

The hydroelectric power plant is a four-unit powerhouse with an installed capacity of 360 megawatts. It is designed to accommodate two more units that will allow it to generate up to 540 megawatts. The hydroelectric plant is a peaking power plant, which means that it only operates when there is a high demand for electricity in the Luzon power grid, to which the plant is connected.
The most common type of hydroelectric power plant is an impoundment facility. An impoundment facility, typically a large hydropower system, uses a dam to store river water in a reservoir. Water released from the reservoir flows through a turbine, spinning it, which in turn activates a generator to produce electricity.

The Magat Dam a double purpose project of President Ferdinand Marcos is a monumental project that until now Filipinos are benefiting. These types of project should be enhanced and generated for Filipinos to move and further utilize. The vision of President Marcos for the future should be one characteristic of our next president. The future of the Philippines depends on the visions of our next leaders. Just like President Marcos he envisioned that one day oil products will deplete.
The construction of Magat with the Hydro electric power plant economizes the production of power. Now Bong Bong Marcos was able to harness the power of the wind by wind turbines. These natural sources of power are efficient and economical. Wind turbine is not only economical but also timely since the production of oil is slowly depleting. One of these days oil will be scarce that a natural source of power is needed. Bong Bong Marcos has initiated this power supply and I hope that one day soon emerges with another source of power. Bong Bong Marcos has the vision, he has the will, let us give him a chance. Let us give him the leadership

Senator Bong Bong Marcos. Philippines chance for recognition

President Ferdinand Marcos created the Light Rail Transit Authority on July12, 1980 by virtue of executive order No, 603 giving birth to what was then dubbed the "Metrorail". First Lady Imelda Marcos, then governor of Metro Manila and Minister of Human Settlement became its first Chairman.

On july 20, 1980 Ferdinand Marcos created the Light Rail Transit Authority as a government agency. Its first chairman was former First Lady Imelda Marcos. The LRTA confined it's activities to determining policies, to the regulation and fixing of fares and to the planning of the extension of the system. The project was called "Metrorail"and was operated by a sister company of the former tramway company Meralco, called Metro Inc.

 All The Following MRT And LRT2 Is Just Copycat Of The Original Plan By Ferdinand Marcos. Many Filipinos Does Not Know That LRT Was A Project By The Marcos Regime. The Philippines Was A Country To Reckon That Time, Emerging As More Advance When It Comes To Technology And Agriculture. Many Of Us Doesn't Realize That At One Time Our Country Was Looked Upon By Neighboring Asian Countries. Maybe It Will Take Time For Filipinos To Achieve That Recognition Again. Maybe It Will Need Another Marcos To Begin That Journey. And Maybe We Should Start Now By Giving Bong Bong Marcos A Chance.

Senator Bong Bong Marcos and the Bangui Wind turbine

Bangui wind turbine
The Northwind Bangui Bay Project is located at the municipality of Bangui, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. Located at the north-west tip of Luzon island, the windmills face the sea from where the wind blows towards the land. Its location along the shore is optimal in removing windbreaks and has a terrain roughness of 0. The site is free of any trees and vegetation, and stretches approximately 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long and 100 metres (330 ft) wide. The area is undeveloped and uninhabited making it ideal as a site and poses no threat to the environment.

One of the biggest problem that our country not only our country but of the whole world is the production of power. Oil as we know is slowly being depleted.  Sources of oil around the world are not abundant like before. We should find another source of energy that is not coming from the products of oil. One of which is the wind turbine that uses wind to produce power.That wind power is one of the reason I believe why Bong bong Marcos  should be elected. Just like the geothermal energy that uses current to produce power which was made under his father”s regime the wind turbine is the future for power sources. I think our leaders should focus and invest in these projects. They should know the outcome once our oil is depleted.  Not to mention the savings that the government and consumers get from these project. So let us think twice who among our leaders need to have a second chance to serve us. After all we are the once who will be affected most.
