- +

Saraburi locals protesting against a power plant project won another administrative case on Tuesday to guarantee their right of access to a power purchase agreement. 

The Central Administrative Court ruled that Power Generation Supply Co, the developer of a 1,600-megawatt power plant in Nong Saeng district of Saraburi, must follow the Office of the Official Information Commission (OIC) and the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand's (Egat) resolution on the disclosure of the power purchase agreement deal to people affected by the project.

The court, however, ruled that thevillagers could have access to the power deal only if the company did not appeal against the verdict within 30 days.
