Suplay ng kuryente sa Western Visayas balik normal na

NABAWI na ang suplay ng kuryente sa Panay Island sa Western Visayas matapos na muling mag-operate ang power plant sa rehiyon noong Biyernes, ayon sa Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC).

“Ang huling planta na hinihintay na mag-operate, nakapag-synchronize na sa grid ng mga bandang 1:30 ng madaling araw kaya’t unti-unti nang naibalik ang suplay,” pahayag ni Monalisa Dimalanta, ang chairperson ng ERC, sa isang news forum sa Quezon City noong Sabado.

“Noong hapon, mula 12 ng tanghali hanggang mga alas-dos, bumalik na sa normal ang sitwasyon sa Western Visayas kaya’t itinaas na ng National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), ng SO, ng system operator ang lahat ng constraints at nag-resume na ang commercial operation ng Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM) sa Visayas Region,” dagdag pa niya.

Bagamat bumalik na sa normal ang suplay ng kuryente sa Western Visayas, patuloy pa ring babantayan ng ERC ang suplay ng kuryente sa rehiyon matapos ang mahabang panahon ng mga brownout ngayong linggo.

Sa pagsagot sa pahayag ng NGCP ukol sa kanilang serbisyo na sinasabi na ito’y limitado lamang sa power transmission, tinalikuran ni Dimalanta ang pahayag na ito, at sinabing itinadhana sa NGCP ang pamamahala ng system operations.

“Ang ibig sabihin nito, ito ay saklaw mismo ng kanilang prangkisa at ng EPIRA na ang trabaho ng system operator ay tiyakin ang ligtas at maaasahang operasyon ng grid,” paliwanag ni Dimalanta.

“Kaya’t hindi ito saklaw ng kanilang pahayag na sinabi na transmission lang ng kuryente – parang ang sistema ay magbabalanse ng sarili kung sila lang ang maglilipat ng kuryente. Hindi kasi ganun kadaling gawin ng sistema, kailangan talagang may nagpapatupad ng balanse. Ang trabaho ng system operator, ito ang kanilang responsibilidad.”

Sinabi ng opisyal ng ERC na patuloy ang kanilang imbestigasyon, at binanggit na sa simula, nakuha ng ERC ang impormasyon na ang unang yunit ay bumagsak mga bandang 12 ng tanghali noong Enero 2, at sinundan ito ng sunud-sunod na pagbabagsak ng iba pang yunit hanggang sa magtotal ng anim na yunit sa oras na iyon.

“Subalit hanggang ngayon, wala pa kaming napapansin, at hindi rin nila sinasabi (NGCP) kung ano ang kanilang ginawa sa loob ng dalawang oras maliban sa pagsasabing normal ang kalagayan sa loob ng dalawang oras na iyon – doon siguro kami nagkakaroon ng kaibahan ng opinyon sa sitwasyon,” sabi ni Dimalanta.

Noong Biyernes, inatasan ni Pangulong Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. ang ERC na agad na ipatupad ang reset ng mga rate ng NGCP matapos ang island-wide blackout na sumiklab sa Western Visayas mula Enero 2.

Ipinag-utos din ng pangulo na tiyakin na ang NGCP ay patuloy na sumusunod sa kanilang batas at regulasyon na obligasyon.

Nagbigay ng malungkot na pahayag si Marcos na bagamat naibalik na ang kuryente, ang sitwasyon ay nagdulot ng malaking kahirapan sa mga residente, nagdulot ng pinsala sa negosyo, naapektohan ang kabuhayan, at nagpapanganib sa mga nangangailangan ng pangangalagang pangkalusugan.
