ERC issues compliance certificates to 19 MIMAROPA power plants

QUEZON CITY, Jan. 17 (PIA) -- The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has approved the Certificates of Compliance (COC) for generation facilities located in the provinces of Romblon, Palawan and Marinduque.

The ERC amended the COC of KW Hydroelectric Power Plant in barangay Taclobo, San Fernando, Romblon under the Catingas Hydro Power Plant Corporation. Eleven power plants from Palawan and three power plants from Marinduque under the National Power Corporation (NPC-SPUG) were given a renewal of COC. A power plant from Palawan and three power plants from Marinduque under the National Power Corporation (NPC-SPUG) were also issued COC.

The ERC found merit in the granting of renewal or amendment of the COCs of power plants in Palawan, Marinduque and Romblon after complying with the technical, financial and environmental standards set in ERC’s Rules for the Issuance of Certificate of Compliance (COC) for Generation Companies and Facilities (COC Rules). The generating units were also found to be compliant with the Philippine Grid Code (PGC) and Philippine Distribution Code (PDC), the WESM Rules, and environmental and other applicable laws.

A COC is a pre-requisite to the commencement of the commercial operations of a power generating plant. It is valid for five years and must be renewed six months prior to its expiration. The issued or renewed or amended COCs will be valid for five years or until 2016.

A total of 32 COCs has been approved for generating companies/facilities which will cover MIPAROPA, North Luzon, Quezon, Siquijor and Cotabato City.

“The issuance of these COCs for NPC-SPUG gives assurance to the consuming public of a sustainable, viable, safe and reliable supply of electricity,” ERC Chairperson Zenaida G. Cruz-Ducut said. (TBO/JAC/PIA-MIMAROPA.Quezon City)
