”If you look at the whole picture, this German firm was referring to the first district and the only available 1,000 hectares of contiguous land area can be found in haciendas which are now planted by sugarcane,” Lacpn pointed out.

“I think the governor (Maranon) showed his concern about food security program in the province,” Lacson said.

“I don’t think we will go hungry if we lose this 1,000 hectares of land,” he said.

Earlier, Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. advised possible investors in renewable energy in the province to ensure that it is not on “prime agricultural land”.

A German firm, Buskowitz Development Inc. is looking for a 1,000 hectares site in the province’ first district as area for a solar farm that is targeted to generate 700 megawatts of power.

Thomas Deeg, chief operating officer and Cristina Vardeleon, recently met with Mayors Melecio Yap Jr. of Escalante City and Araceli Somosa of Calatrava, Councilor Christopher Paul Carmona, representing San Carlos City Mayor Gerardo Valmayor.
