No More Rotating Brownouts until December 2013
Last September 10, 2013, Treasure Steelworks Corp. (TSC) has assigned its unused energy to the City of Iligan through the intercession of the local government unit led by the City Mayor Celso G. Regencia.
The assignment is equivalent to 14 MW for September, 11 MW for October, 16 MW for November, and 15 MW for December.
Unless a major breakdown or shutdown will occur on the existing power plants in the Mindanao Grid, the energy assignment will ensure that the City of Iligan will be spared from the rotating brownouts experienced all over Mindanao as a result of the current power supply deficiency.
More importantly, with generation rates cheaper during wet season (July to December) coupled with this assignment, charges will most probably decrease considering that the power nomination with the Mapalad Power Corp. (MPC), a diesel-fired power plant, will significantly reduce.
Pursuant to the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) Decision dated January 28, 2013, covering ERC Case No. 2011-091 RC, the Honorable Commission has directed all Distribution Utilities (DUs) and the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) to collect from the customers the Universal Charge – Stranded Contract Costs (UC-SCC) of the National Power Corporation in the amount of PhP0.1938/kWh starting March 2013 billing period.
The Commission has authorized the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management (PSALM) Corporation to recover the said UC-SCC for Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao Grids. This is in accordance to Section 34(a) of the Electric Power Industry Reform Act
