Napocor grants 24/7 power to Bohol islet, builds bigger office in the province

The National Power Corporation (Napocor) grants round the clock power service to Cuaming Island in Bohol to urge the local community to engage in small businesses.

“Fishing remains to be the number one industry in the island, but then we believe that with 24/7 power, non-fishermen can engage in other means of livelihood in order to boost local trade in the island,” said Napocor’s Acting Manager for Visayas Operations, Pete Llorente.

 NAPOCOR provides 24/7 power to Cebu’s Guintarcan Island

The National Power Corporation (Napocor) grants 24/7 power supply to over 1,000 consumers of Guintarcan Island to spur economic activities in this lesser known beautiful island of Cebu.

 “A sufficient reserved power allowed the round the clock operation since our Guintarcan Diesel Power Plant’s dependable capacity stands at 455 kW while our peak demand is only at 128 kW,” said Napocor’s Visayas Operations Department OIC Manager Engr. Pete Llorente.

 Napocor said that the island has great potential for tourism and fishing industry. It also hopes that students and teachers can maximize electricity use for learning especially in the use of the internet.

 Guintarcan Island, known as Kinatarkan among locals, is located at the northwestern tip of Cebu. It is part of the Municpality of Santa Fe which is located in a separate and more popular island of Bantayan.

 Guintarcan is still underdeveloped but has promising destinations for travelers like its long strips of white sand, clear ocean waters and the La-aw Lagoon. END

Napocor completes rehab, energizes Mobo-Aroroy transmission line in Masbate

 Residents of the province of Masbate can expect a better power dispatch and supply as the National Power Corporation (Napocor) completes the rehabilitation and successfully energizes its 46.59 km Mobo – Aroroy 69 kV transmission line.

 “The rehabilitation project allowed the replacement of old wooden poles with concrete and steel to make the transmission line more resilient against typhoon and other disasters,” said Napocor President and CEO Pio J. Benavidez.

 Napocor said that it likewise completed the construction of the 3.17 km extension project of the said transmission line. The extension project connected the transmission line to Masbate Electric Cooperative’s (MASELCO) 5MVA substation in Barangay Bangon, Aroroy.

 The rehabilitation and extension projects which have a total cost of 151 million pesos were funded from the National Government’s Special Allotment Release Order in 2013 and 2015, respectively.

 “The energization of the transmission is a breakthrough as it has been stalled for long years due to right of way issues,” Benavidez said.

 Napocor said that the said projects will help reduce power outages and systems losses of MASELCO who services 71,000 households in the island province.

 As mandated by the Republic Act 9136 or the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001, Napocor performs missionary electrification through its Small Power Utilities Group and provides associated power delivery systems in areas not connected to the main transmission grid. For this, Napocor operates and manage transmission systems for the island provinces of Palawan, Occidental and Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Catanduanes and Masbate.END
