Published on August 2, 2019 12:00 AM
Pursuant to the government’s directive to connect off-grid areas into the main power grid, power transmission operator NGCP recently filed its application with the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) to pursue Stage 1 of the Palawan-Mindoro Interconnection Project (PMIP).
The PMIP Stage 1, with an estimated cost of PhP 6.4 billion, will serve as the preparatory stage for the interconnection of Palawan to the main grid. It aims to conduct further studies on the interconnection of Palawan to Mindoro through submarine cable and establish a transmission backbone designed to serve long-term power needs in the area.
