Stronger transmission for a stronger nation. This is the commitment the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) has undertaken to fulfill since its incorporation in 2008 when it assumed the crucial task of delivering safe and reliable electricity throughout the archipelago, a responsibility formerly held by the National Transmission Corporation or TransCo. A fully private corporation, NGCP won the franchise to operate and maintain the country’s transmission network in the biggest government auction conducted in efforts to reform the local power sector. This fifty-year franchise provides NGCP with the right to operate, maintain, expand and further strengthen the country’s power transmission system which, as of end-2009, involved 19,425 circuit kilometers of transmission lines and 23,853 MVA of substation capacity. As the system operator of the power grid, NGCP balances the demand and supply of electricity to serve efficiently all of its customers—generators, private distribution utilities, electric cooperatives, government-owned utilities, ecozones, industries, as well as directly connected companies. It is responsible for putting online the right mix of power plants that generate the high-voltage electricity and transmitting this to the various distribution utilities which, in turn, deliver the electricity at a lower voltage rating to households and other end-users. Equipped with technical expertise, a sound financial portfolio and impressive track record, NGCP is poised to successfully deliver the electricity needed to fuel the growth of the economy and thereby empower the Filipino people and the country’s business sector, strengthening the nation as a whole.
