Richard Gomez, Ormoc City Mayor Lucy Torres-Gomez, Sangguniang Panlalawigan member Lalaine Marcos, EDC deputy chief operating officer Jerome Cainglet, EDC corporate support functions head Regina Victoria Pascual and EDC corporate relations and communications head Atty. Allan Barcena.
“Today is a great day to celebrate EDC’s almost 40-year partnership with the beautiful and resilient city of Ormoc as it celebrates its landmark 75th charter day,” Barcena said in his message during the ceremony. “We are thankful to Mayor Lucy TorresGomez and Congressman Richard Gomez for including EDC in this laudable Ormoc City Museum that showcases the best of Ormoc in art form and recognizes our company’s role in the city’s history and progress.
“Through this exhibit, we hope to instill pride among Ormocanons, not only because of the benefits of geothermal energy and why we refer to it as Geo 24/7, but also because this source of indigenous, renewable energy is most abundant here in Leyte among all other parts of our country,” said Barcena.
