BY ADRIAN NEMES III
The multi-million 18.9 megwatt diesel plant to be constructed by the Central Negros Power Reliability Inc. in Brgy. Calumanggan, Bago City, is expected to be fully operational in November this year, Henry Sia, project manager, told the DAILY STAR yesterday
At the ground-breaking for the plant yesterday in Purok San Jose, Brgy Calumanggan, Sia said, the project is expected to be completed by either September or October this year.
The diesel plant was conceptualized as part of Central Negros Electric Cooperative’s Power Reliability Program to protect Bacolod and Central Negros from power interruptions in the Visayan Grid and the price unpredictability of the Visayan Wholesale Electricity Spot Market, he said.
