In times of shortage, windmills help Oriental Mindoro.

According to the Oriental Mindoro Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ORMECO), residents of this province enjoyed the entirety of Tuesday without experiencing a power outage.

The Philippine News Agency (PNA) was informed by an ORMECO representative that the Puerto Galera-based Philippine Hybrid Energy Systems, Inc. (Phesi) wind project was responsible for the day-long electricity supply.

The province experienced a one-hour power outage on Monday due to the absence of renewable power facilities like Phesi. However, the causes of this were not completely acknowledged.

As long as renewable power plants can produce electricity, which can be difficult during the dry season, the province will likely have a relatively consistent electricity supply, according to the ORMECO spokesman.

In the municipality of San Teodoro, ORMECO now runs two micro hydropower plants with a combined 5.1 megawatts (MW) of power output.

The Inabasan micro hydro power plant, located in San Teodoro, and the Catuiran hydro-electric power plant, which produce 18MW combined, are two other power plants in the province that rely on water to run.

The Phesi project near Puerto Galera uses wind turbines to produce 16 MW of power.

Meanwhile, Governor Humerlito Dolor requested that the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and the Department of Energy (DOE) take the required action to prevent future deterioration of the province’s power supply situation.

He asked concerned organizations to make sure that Oriental Mindoro’s electricity situation did not resemble that of Occidental Mindoro, its sister province, which currently has to deal with hour-long daily brownouts.

At the 41st Annual General Membership Assembly of ORMECO on Monday, the governor urged.

Administrator of the National Electrification Commission Antonio Almeda stated during the same event that if Oriental Mindoro’s proposed power projects are successful, the province may wind up delivering electricity to mainland Luzon.
