PIA Press Release

Negros power boost approved

Iloilo City (22 August) -- The delivery of power services in the Northeastern part of Negros Occidental got another boost with the approval by the Regional Development Council of the proposed construction of the San Carlos-Guihulngan 69 kV transmission line of the National Transmission Corporation (TRANSCO).

With the RDC approval, the northeastern part of the Negros Island will have dual power sources from both Cadiz City in Negros Occidental and Alam, in Negros Oriental. This is expected to improve the voltage quality and further enhance efficiency and reliability even during peak demand. It is also seem to intensify and promote the National Government Total Electrification Program and provide critical infrastructure to accommodate future merchant plant players in the area.

The proposed project will include the provision of a 69 kV-Single Circuit-Steel Pole Transmission Line and one 336 MCM conductor veering some 52 kilometers.

With the approval of the Regional Development Council, the proposed project will be one of the two Negros 5 Transmission Project to be funded under the Miyazawa Fund.

The implementation of more power projects is line with the President Arroyo's ten-point agenda on energy and power supply which it is seriously pursuing. Of the 45,000 barangays all over the country, only some 4000 more barangays need to be electrified. (PIA-6) [top]
