Reminiscing Christmas Time in CDO

*Photo courtesy of http://pia.gov.ph

Way back during my childhood days whenever Christmas is near, the Gaston park located near the Saint Augustine Cathedral and Archbishop’s Palace in Cagayan de Oro is full of Christmas trees, lights and Belen or as what they called The Nativity or Manger.  


Every year, they hold Christmas themed contests for companies or business establishments.  In each contestant, they would use indigenous materials such as coconut shells on their entry for the competition.  After hearing the mass, we would stay for hours and see the entries of all contestants.  I missed those times when my mother and I stayed at the park and see the colorful lights and nicest belens.  


It has been years now that they did not have any contests.  Now that I have daughters, I would like to share with them my beautiful experiences when Christmas is around just like me and my mother.  I wished they will bring back those times because I wanted my daughters to feel the Christmas spirit whenever we go the park and it also feels good to see the park with so many colorful decorations all over the place.

Solar Energy Plant in Cagayan de Oro

The heat from the sun, or popularly called as Solar energy is one of the most available renewable energy on earth along with wind power and hydroelectricity and such. Solar powered electrical generation relies on heat engines and photovoltaics.There are many ways to harvest solar energy and the most common is to use solar panels.


Last August 6 at 9 o’clock in the morning, the CDOBloggers gather at CEPALCO’s office to visit the site of the world’s first and largest on-grid Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Plant at Barangay Indahag. They call the plant 1 Megawatt Photovoltaic Power Plant and it was inaugurated in 2004. It is a 1MWp polycrystalline silicon-based PV plant and connected with the distribution of network of CEPALCO.  Its commercial operations started last September 26, 2004. At its current generating capacity, the plant supplies no less than 900 CEPALCO residential customers.


The 1 MWp plant’s installation costs close to $5.3 Million, uses 6,500 solar panels on 2 hectares of land and partially funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) which was facilitated by the World Bank through the International Finance Corporation. It has already been visited by over 10,000 students and visitors both local and foreign renewable energy enthusiasts since it started operations. 


CEPALCO is now setting out on a larger 30-hectare solar park within the First Cagayan de Oro Business Park located in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental, just about 30 minutes from the Cagayan de Oro City. This proposed plant will be able to supply with not less than 14,000,000 kWh of electricity powering more or less 18,000 residents. Through CEPALCO, more people will be aware on renewable energy and how good it will be for our environment.
