Location: Bangui, Ilocos Norte
Attraction: Bangui Windmills
Date: April 7, 2009
Encounter with the 15 tall, white wind turbines of Bangui, which were built by the NorthWind Power Development Corporation to help reduce emission of harmful greenhouse gases causing global warming and to accelerate the rural electrification of the goverment.
These tri-blade windmill which began operating in 2005, provides 40 percent of the power needed by the entire province of Ilocos Norte. Each kilowatt-hour produced by the Bangui wind farm is also seven centavos cheaper than fossil-fuel power.
Each gigantic windmill is 70 meters high, and each blade is 41 meters long extending a total of 9 kilometers along the Bangui Bay. Too great to ignore :D
Another attraction here in Bangui is no less than "Kangkang Windmill Cafe" - the only cafe and restaurant you'll find near Bangui Windmills. The word "Kangkang" is the name of their sitio which originally a name of a rural bird that creates the sound "kangkang."
Food that is served generously, healthy and fresh.
Plus cool sea breeze.
Plus friendly and accommodating crew & staff
Equals superb and indulgent breakfast at Kangkang Cafe :D
Opps, make sure you won't miss to order their special Kangkang Brew - made from fine, whole coffee bean imported from Switzerland... fresh roasted... brewed perfectly... fragrant aroma... rich flavour... superb taste :D ( caution HOT )
For only Php45.00 per cup... cheap at its best:D
For your eyes only :D
How to get there?
From Burgos Lighthouse, we followed Pan-Philippine Highway (also known as the Maharlika Highway) and head to Cagayan. After passing through Burgos town proper, you'll see directional marker in the left side of the road. Turn left before the bridge which will lead you to gravel road heading Bangui Bay.
