NPC Launches New Power Facilities in Zamboanga City
The National Power Corporation on Saturday, November 12 held an off-site launching and switch-on ceremony in Garden Orchid Hotal in Zamboanga City for its two new power plants in Great Sta. Cruz and Tumalutab Islands.
In his message, NPC Vice President for SPUG Larry Sabellina thanked the local government and the Congress for their unwavering support in the realization of the project which culminates the energization of the five island barangays in Zamboanga.
Moreover, Mayor John Dalipe also expressed his gratitude to NPC for its energization efforts in the city.
“This would greatly support our business agenda, especially our eco-tourism goals,” Dalipe said.
19th Congress Majority Leader and District 2 Congressman Mannix Dalipe sent his warm felicitations to NPC and the LGU. Congressman Dalipe is a constant supporter of NPC’s electrification programs and was instrumental in sourcing the budget for the realization of the electrification projects in Zamboanga being then the Vice-Chairman on Committee of Appropriations in the 18th Congress.
The other island barangays that were recently energized were Pangapuyan (October 2021), Tigtabon (March 2022) and Manalipa (May 2022).
NPC, as mandated by the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001, is tasked to provide electricity and associated power components in off-grid islands and communities in the country.
