Some 500 households in an island in Zamboanga City will be assured of a 24-hour power service once a P25-million diesel power plant becomes operational, the city government said.
This as the National Power Corporation (NPC) officials, together with Acting Mayor Rommel Agan and District 2 Representative Mannix Dalipe, led the ceremonial inauguration of the Sacol diesel power plant at a local hotel Friday, November 8.
The 500 households to benefit from the project came from four barangays in Sacol Island – Landang Gua, Pasilmanta, Busay and Landang Laum.
The power plant falls under the Small Power Utilities Group (SPUG) operations of the NPC and is estimated to cost P25 million, said Engr. Abdulsana Hasinon, Sacol Plant head.
The Zamboanga City Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Zamcelco) will take care the distribution lines.
