House leader: Solar franchise will break monopoly in power sector

  Deputy House Speaker Arthur Yap on Wednesday defended his bill that would seek to grant a nonexclusive congressional franchise to a startup solar company that offers consumers a cheaper, cleaner and reliable source of electricity.   Breaking his silence, the Bohol lawmaker insisted that House Bill No. 8179 had provisions preventing Solar Para Sa Bayan Corp.
