NGCP lends a hand to Cagayan local coop


 Members of the Board of Directors of Cagayan I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CAGELCO I), expressed their appreciation to the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) for assisting in the installation of the electric cooperative’s new transformer.

In a board resolution sent to the management of the power grid operator, CAGELCO I commended three NGCP engineers namely, Jose R. Arellano, Head of North Luzon Operations and Maintenance (NLOM); Raul Joseph G. Seludo, Head of Luzon System Operations and; Alexander G. Alvarez, Head of District 4 NLOM covering the province of Cagayan, who all promptly responded to the coop’s request.

NGCP assisted CAGELCO I in energizing its new 15-megavolt ampere (MVA) transformer at its substation in Solana, Cagayan which delivers electricity to the towns of Amulung, Enrile, Piat, Solana, and Tuguegarao City. Prior to the installation, NGCP was also involved in the testing and evaluation of the said equipment.

"Our company is always ready to help our customers in any way. We are honored that our customers asked for our help because it only shows that they trust us and they believe in our expertise. This is one way of ensuring the quality of electricity and service that we deliver to the public," stated Atty. Cynthia Perez-Alabanza, NGCP Spokesperson.

CAGELCO I is one of the two electric cooperatives serving the province of Cagayan. Led by General Manager Tito R. Lingan, it currently distributes power to twelve municipalities and operates five substations in the province.

NGCP is a privately owned corporation in charge of operating, maintaining, and developing the country’s power grid. It transmits high-voltage electricity through "power superhighways" that include the interconnected system of transmission lines, towers, substations, and related assets. NGCP’s regular maintenance activities and rehabilitation projects aim to enhance the reliability and quality of electricity delivered to grid-connected customers like generators, distributors, and large industries.
