Augmentation of the Current Bohol Power Source. Engr. Noel Galinato of the Conal Holdings Corporation (CHC) presented the proposed 95.2 MW In-Island Baseload Power Plant Project. The purpose of the presentation is to seek PDC endorsement to the Sannguniang Panlalawigan for appropriate legislative action.
The 95.2 MW In-Island Baseload Power Plant intends to resolve Bohol’s increasing demand for electricity, particularly due to demographic and economic growth. CHC’s diesel power project is to be located in Barangay Imelda, Ubay and will be connected to the electricity grid through a 138kV transmission line connecting to the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) Ubay Substation.
