Underutilized natural resource in the Philippines could answer energy deficit

The Philippines is the largest consumer of electricity yet is a huge geothermal source which could answer and provide for its own energy needs. Worldwide, the Philippines ranks second to the United States in producing geothermal energy, with Mexico coming as third.
