Power supply issues of the island province of Mindoro were discussed this morning by NPC officials led by President Ma. Gladys Cruz-Sta. Rita and representatives of Oriental Mindoro Electric Cooperative (ORMECO), Occidental Mindoro Electric Cooperative (OMECO), Emerging Power Inc., and the Department of Energy.
Among the issues raised were the net metering agreement between the two electric cooperatives and completion of the transmission looping of the island by NPC. The net metering agreement intends to export power from Oriental Mindoro where there is excess power supply to Occidental Mindoro where power supply is deficient.
With the completion of these projects, a more reliable and sufficient power supply is expected for Mindoro.
