Bangui Windmills

Bangui, Philippines

If you visit Ilocos Norte, it is a must to see the Bangui Windmills which is located in Bangui. These windmills are actually a project called the NorthWind Bangui Bay Project which is created by the NorthWind Development Corporation.

The main reason this project was created was to be able to renew energy sources and help reduce the greenhouse gases that cause global warming. This project is the first Wind Farm project in the Philippines which consists of wind turbines facing the South China Sea. These wind turbines are also the largest in southeast Asia. The project produces around 74,482 Mwh of electricity every year. The expected life of the wind turbines is 21 years. This place is accessible through Laoag – Cagayan route towards Burgos. The directional marker on the left side of the road leads to a dirt road heading to Bangui Bay. Be ready for another educational and fun tour in Ilocos Norte.
