NPC’s San Jose and Concepcion Diesel Power Plants have granted their 3,500 connected households round the clock power operations before 2020 ended.
Both power plants have huge power reserves which allowed for the extension of service hours into 24/7. San Jose and Concepcion have a power demand of 403 kW and 175 kW, while their current capacities stand at 850 kW and 1190 kW, respectively.
San Jose, Romblon is the home of the beautiful and pristine Carabao Island, a destination getaway that claims to be the next Boracay which is also true in proximity as it is only a boat away from Boracay Island. Concepcion, Romblon is also filled with interesting destinations like Tinigban Falls. Fishing and tourism are the primary economic activities in both islands.
In 2020, NPC increased the service operations of its 13 Small Power Utilities Group (SPUG) plants which benefited around 9,000 households. This did not only aided local commerce but also assisted communities in their campaigns against coronavirus.
