The National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR) will shut down the 69 KV Tie Line every weekend until the completion of its relocation and maintenance activities starting on July 1.

In a letter addressed to Engr. Rez Contrivida, general manager of Palawan Electric Cooperative (PALECO), Engr. Frederick B. Barrios, manager of the NAPOCOR Palawan Operations Division, informed that they have been mandated to complete the tie line relocation and other maintenance activities as soon as possible.

The letter also stated that NAPOCOR will be conducting a shutdown of the 69 kV Tie Line (Irawan to PALECO) from 8:00 AM on July 1st (Saturday) until 5:00 PM on July 2nd (Sunday). Aside from the mentioned dates, the shutdown of the 69 kV Tie Line will continue on the following Saturdays and Sundays until their tasks are completed.

Concurrently with NAPOCOR’s activities, the DMCI Narra Thermal Power Plant will conduct a 100% load testing to provide additional power supply to the towns of Narra, Brooke’s Point, Sofronio Espanola, Bataraza, Roxas, Taytay, and Dumaran (mainland).

Due to the unavailability of the 69 kV Tie Line that supplies power from the DMCI Power Corporation to the city, only PPGI and E Delta P will provide electricity.

PALECO said this is expected to be insufficient for the city’s power needs, thus it will implement a load shedding schedule every Saturday and Sunday.

The power coop also said southern and northern municipalities will experience power outages after the work for grid resynchronization.

Here is the schedule for July 1 to July 2:

July 1, 2023 (Saturday) and July 2, 2023 (Sunday)

*Restoration of grid from island operation to normal operation

PALECO said the availability of power supply will determine if power can be restored earlier than expected. In case it is necessary, a curtailment schedule will be put in place in advance. When it comes to load shedding, downstream reclosers will be given priority.

Before resorting to load shedding, Variable Load Control (VLC) will be implemented as a first step, it said.
