Hedcor recognizes its responsibility to stand in solidarity with the communities. “Hedcor will continue to realize our host communities’ dreams and aspirations with life-changing impact; and become a beacon of hope that has the power of creating sustainable change,” said Rolando Pacquiao, President and COO.
Said amount is equivalent to one fourth centavo to one centavo per kilowatt-hour (P0.0025-P0.01/kWh) electricity sales. The computation is based on Hedcor’s Memorandum of Agreement with its host communities generated from the total attributable energy sales of Manolo Fortich 1 and 2 hydros.
The provincial government pledged to use the funds to implement relevant projects that benefit the community. “We thank Hedcor for being steadfast in their commitment to the implementation of our MOAs. We are excited to witness and to continuously partner with Hedcor for the conscious and consistent positive change that these funds will bring to our communities,” said Governor Rogelio Neil Roque.
