The MOA was entered into by and among the DOE, Team Energy Corporation, RDC IV-A and the Mayors of Agdangan, General Luna, Padre Burgos, Guinayangan, Gumaca, Pitogo and Candelaria in Quezon.

The projects include: Installation of Solar Powered Streetlights, Construction of Environmental (Green House) and Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Center, Improvement of Water Supply System, Extension and Development of Materials Recovery Facility and Purchase of One Unit New Ambulance.

The LGU projects were the results of the three project development trainings for Calabarzon LGUs conducted by the NEDA Region IV-A last year. There were 20 LGU projects endorsed by the RDC to the power plant companies in 2015, of which, the remaining 13 are still under review by the power plant companies and DOE.
