Marcos Jr. appeals to NGCP to collaborate with gov’t to secure power infrastructure


President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. appealed to the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) to collaborate with the government to aid the country in its increasing demand for electricity.

Inquirer reported that the chief executive called on the grid operator to join forces with the government to guarantee the security of electricity in the face of growing demand.

Marcos Jr. also acknowledged the partnership of the NGCP with the San Ignacio Energy Resources Development Corporation (SIERDC) for the Isabela Ground Mounted Solar Project (IGMSP) in his speech, saying that this collaboration is an important step in guaranteeing the country’s RE goals.

Additionally, these projects aid the country in transitioning to RE and he considers clean energy a vital measure against climate change.

The Isabela Solar Project, amounting to Php 18 billion, is expected to bring about 440 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity annually, estimated to power around two million households, and offer opportunities for 4,000 workers during its construction.

The IGMSP, situated in a 392-hectare industrial land in Barangays Arusip, Bagong Silang, Cabannungan 2nd, and Pilar in Ilagan City, Isabela is slated to commence its construction in the last quarter of 2024 and is expected to be fully operational by 2026.
