CEBU CITY, November 20 (PIA) -- Residents in the Visayas are assured of stable power supply for now as the Department of Energy (DOE) - Visayas Field Office reported that there is 429 MW actual power reserve.
Engr. Rey Maleza, supervisor of the Energy Industrial Management Division of the DOE-Visayas, said peak demand for power in Regions 6,7 and 8 comprising is 1,489 MW. “The peak demand was recorded last August 16 while the minimum demand is 1,044 MW which was recorded in April 6,” said Maleza.
“The maximum power capacity in the Visayas is 1,869 MW so we have an additional power reserve of 400MW,” assured Maleza.
Maleza, one of the resource speakers during the recent Energy Lecture 101 Series on Renewable Energy and Electric Power Industry in Cebu City, presented the ‘Power Situation in the Visayas.’
But the DOE official said 150MW power capacity is needed by 2015 in the Visayas with the surging investments within the region and especially with the plan to put up a Mega World by the Ayala Business Group in Iloilo City.
“In fact, a 50MW new capacity is needed starting 2016 to meet the (increasing) demand and required (power) reserve,” added Maleza.
