NPC energizes Manalipa Island in Zamboanga City
On May 4, NPC switched on its new power facility in Manalipa Island in Zamboanga City, granting 8 hours of daily electricity to some 400 households on the island.
Manalipa is the third of five island barangays that NPC swore to energize. The Corporation also constructed and now operates its distribution line.
The switch-on ceremony was graced by Congressman Mannix Dalipe and NPC SPUG-Mindanao Operations Department led by Mr. Yahcob H. Darayan.
Manalipa Island’s major industries include fishing, carrageenan culture, and boat building. It is located 22 kilometers from Zamboanga mainland. The island is one of the city’s most promising tourist destinations.
