With the impending power crisis facing the Philippines next year, stakeholders in the power sector are looking at local sources for power.

The move of the newly- organized Negros Electric Cooperatives Association (NECA) to look for potential investors to tap the coal deposits in Calatrava got a boost after Negros Occidental Vice Governor Eugenio Jose "Bong" Lacson bared his support for it.

Lacson said that it will be up to the local government unit concerned to support it or not.
