About 40 visiting pupils from Yeongdong South Korea toured the geothermal plants operated by the Energy Development Corp. in the municipality of Valencia to learn about renewable energy in producing electricity.

Prior to their tour, the Korean students, who are the top students in Yeongdong, paid a courtesy call on Valencia Mayor Edgar Teves Jr. and to Dumaguete Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo.

The educational tour of the Grade 5 and Grade 6 pupils is part of their Global Leader Camp while on their winter break.

The organizers expressed gratitude to Mayor Teves and EDC Negros Facility Head Engr. Noel Tan for the study tour, and to Engr. Julito Kwan and Mary Grace Tito for the lecture and guided tour.

The EDC prides itself as the largest producer of geothermal energy in the Philippines and second largest in the world.

Meanwhile, South Korea is heavily dependent on coal, natural gas and nuclear energy in producing electricity to power their homes and industries.

The Korean students also attended a welcome ceremony at the City Hall for an orientation about Dumaguete culture, arts, educational institutions, and governance. Youth leaders Franz Macion and Lei Marie Danielle Tolentino also answered questions from the visiting students.

Yeongdong-gun is Dumaguete’s sister city, and is known to produce quality grapes with high sugar content and sweet aroma thus, is home to the best wineries in South Korea. (PR)
