A pioneering renewable energy project in the Visayas region, the 54 MW Guimaras Wind Farm generates over 120 gigawatt-hours of electricity annually, which can sustain the energy demand of over 48,000 households. It was developed to heed the higher energy demand in the province due to the surge in infrastructure and economic progress.

Guimaras Wind Farm took sustainability and tourism a step further with the launch of the Green Spark Project, a program that promotes the use of locally made “bambikes” or bamboo-made bikes within the wind farm. The bamboo bikes are set up near the Pasalubong Center, and will entail the use of the winding paths that traverses the wind turbines that tower like gentle giants over the terrain. Green Spark Project is a collaboration among Guimaras Wind Farm, National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, Bamb Ecological Technology Inc., the provincial government of Guimaras, and the municipalities of San Lorenzo and Buenavista.
Building a "Learning Forest"
In the local community of Tanglad, Sibunag, Guimaras Wind Farm is working with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources for the Arboretum Project, a program that will convert a 27-hectare woodland into a “learning forest”. Select species of trees in particular quantities were identified and propagated within the green space. The saplings were chosen based on its quality and potential to enrich the biodiversity in the area. In total, over 6,000 trees were planted in the forest with the objective to be an educational resource for students where they can observe the fauna and explore its symbiotic relationship with the land.
