The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) gave the Provincial Council or SP Aklan an assurance that it will completely restore the electricity supply in the province.
In line with this, the Aklan Electric Copperative (AKELCO) is also confident that their services will go back to normal by the end of March.
On the 10th Regular SP Session this Wednesday, the NGCP led by Engr. Rey Jaleco and AKELCO General Manager Chito Peralta, said that they will do their best to put back the 138KV transmission lines’ service in Nabas Sub-station which in turn provides electricity in Boracay.
According to GM Peralta, AKELCO sources its supply from the 50MVA Sub-station Transformer at Panit-an, Capiz, while it is transmitted though the 69KV transmission lines.
Jaleco added that AKELCO’s current peak power demand is 43.69MW and the 69KV line only provides 87.1 of what the cooperative needs, half of which is consumed by Boracay Island.
Meanwhile, Vice Governor Gabrielle Calizo-Quimpo has earlier expressed concern over the rehabilitation and restoration project of energy authorities particularly this peak season.
