When the power line snapped, the distribution post toppled, genset fuel totally consumed, bridges failed, and the community is totally isolated, the Barangay power plant will continue to give power through fresh greens and organic waste.
Besides giving community livelihood, sustainable income, and community waste management, it is also typhoon proof. It may be the only standing power source. Industrial by design, it will be an important “the-next-day-after” power support for a small community. It is indeed a perfect power plant for a 7000+ island nation.
This project can be funded in so many ways. The Barangay who wanted it must initiate a project proposal for funding allotment or grants. There are so many justifications involve: climate change mitigation, remote power generation, livelihood creation, waste management, sustainable Barangay income, etc., etc.. They must have the tenacity to source out possible funding to benefit their constituents. The project is long term, 20 to 25 years of power generation, so it is beyond the political term of the one who started it. It will be his grand and worthy legacy though for all time. If a Barangay can go beyond their usual “our-budget-is-limited” or “we-don’t-have-the–money” way of thinking, they will find the following funding avenues worth checking and submitting a proposal to:
– Line Special Project Budget Allotment or Grant from the Provincial or National Government
– Foreign grants to support climate change mitigation endeavors in developing countries.
– Barangay residents who lived abroad and who may have an association wanting to do a project.
– Any existing ADB or WB Renewable Energy funding to benefit the Barangay. It is not big so it may be easy.
– Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds of large companies, especially those located in your place, provided their logo or brand is painted on the power plant itself.
– A wealthy Barangay resident who may want to do it on a Build-Operate-Transfer agreement.
– Any government agencies with funds for the development and care of the environment, agriculture, LGU, poverty index, remote community leverage, etc. etc…
– PDAF? DAP? Whatever will happen to it would only mean more visual local projects that people wanted to see and hear for years to come. Not just on the term of the incumbent Barangay Captain. This project is one perfect example.
Funding for such projects would tend to go direct and with extreme transparency. It will create so much good for the general welfare but less SOP money. Corruption destroys. Service uplifts. Having your own Barangay Power Plant will be a new beginning.

The system is a first rate high technology biogas power generation package that is first in the world. It is similar to a state-of-the-art biogas power plant with all the automation and instrumentation to make it safe and efficient. To give you an idea what that is, click a short video link below.
An efficient and reliable biogas system must not be only tanks, pipes, and valves. it must be controlled and biogas production analyzed. Fuel mixed observed and studied to create the perfect system to give extra value for your money.

Helping the Poor.
I am currently for hire to do a highly profitable triple bottom-line business to raise the lives of the rural poor. It is a grass-root technology driven business to usher decentralized progress.
