Nine sugar mills are in full production even though the sugar harvest
has not yet started; they are generating electricity to alleviate the
energy crisis in the country, said Sugar Industry Minister Oscar
Almazn, although he did not specify which sugar mills are involved.

He did say that by the end of October, 16 mills will be added to the
power grid.

Sugar mills usually generate power when they are operating, a necessity
since they tend to be the only sign of civilization for miles around.
During operation, they generate electricity by burning the spent husk of
the sugar cane. The mills producing electricity now are burning oil.
