Family Trip to Bangui Wind Farm

Over the Holy Week break this past year, the family went to Vigan. From there, we traveled to the Northern tip of Luzon to Bangui, Ilocos Norte, site of the Bangui Wind Farm. Unlike the Pililla Wind Farm that we recently visited which sits on a mountain, the Bangui Wind Farm is found along the beach facing the South China Sea. Twenty wind turbines standing in line along the sandy shore makes for quite a dramatic view.

The Bangui Wind Farm is the output of the NorthWind Bay Project, an initiative that explores renewable and environmentally sound energy sources. It supplies 40 percent of Ilocos Norte’s power requirements.

The Bangui Wind Farm is considered to be the biggest in Southeast Asia, and a trip to Ilocos will not be complete without a visit to this site.
