PIA Press Release

TransCo schedules public consultation on Transmission Development Plan

Manila (26 September) -- The National Transmission Corporation (TransCo) will conduct its annual series of consultation meetings with electric power industry stakeholders in key cities nationwide to discuss its 2007-2016 Transmission Development Plan (TDP).

The TDP is a program for expansion, reinforcement, upgrading, and rehabilitation of the transmission system, which is prepared by TransCo and submitted to the Department of Energy (DOE) for integration to DOE's Power Development Plan (PDP) and Philippine Energy Plan (PEP). TransCo, through its Corporate Planning Group, prepares and revises a ten-year TDP annually to reflect significant changes in the power industry landscape and priorities.

The TDP consultation will formally start in Grand Regal Hotel in Davao City on September 27, 2007 for Mindanao customers and stakeholders, then in Cebu Midtown Hotel, Cebu City on October 2 for Visayas customers, and in TransCo's Head Office in Quezon City on October 8 for customers from Luzon.

Section 9 of the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA) of 2001 requires TransCo to conduct a thorough information dissemination and public discussion of planned power transmission projects prior to their integration into the DOE's PEP and PDP.

The TDP currently follows the demand projections and generation capacity set by the DOE. Part of the said consultation is a discussion of the latest demand projection and generation capacity being used by TransCo as basis to identify future transmission constraints and expansions.

The state utility firm will also discuss completed and ongoing projects with the electricity stakeholders to assess the measures for improvement of the transmission network.

Around 285 companies from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao including independent power producers, electric cooperatives, private distribution utilities, directly-connected industries, local government units, business groups and non-government organizations are expected to participate in this year's TDP consultations.
