The National Power Corp. (Napocor) inaugurated on Friday four new generating sets with total rated capacity of 2.4 MW in its Polillo Island Diesel Power Plant in Quezon to accommodate increasing demand and sustain the 24/7 power supply in the area. “These gensets will ensure more reliable power supply for more than 5,000 households in the three municipalities of Polillo, Burdeos and Panukalan,” said Napocor president and CEO Pio Benavidez. With the additional gensets, it is expected that local tourism and businesses in the island will continue to flourish as Polillo’s beaches are among the developing tourism sites in the country. On top of boosting tourism and economic industries that Napocor serves through its 273 Small Power Utilities Group (SPUG), development programs in infrastructure, health and education are also ensured and improved. The power firm continues to reach more islands to energize and continuously upgrade its SPUG power plants that it has commissioned a total of 58 gensets with a total capacity of 13.66 MW in 2016.
