The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) plans to build a PhP 3.1 billion substation in Antipolo City in a bid to improve the reliability of the country’s power grid. NGCP has filed an application with the Energy Regulatory Commission for the approval of the project, which will be built in Barangay San Juan in Antipolo City. The proposed substation will have two power transformers with an initial installed capacity of 750 MVA; it can also accommodate an additional two 750 MVA transformers. Further, the new substation is expected to prevent system congestion and relieve the San Jose substation at Bulacan, which is currently carrying the bulk of Metro Manila’s power load.
