I saw the Escudero Hydroelectric Power Plant at Villa Escudero last week. Originally it generated power for the Escudero coconut plantation in Tayabas province. It is the first hydroelectric plant in the Philippines. Although no longer in use, it is very well-preserved. (Architect Augusto F. Villalon)
