    MEXICO, Pampanga – The regional head for North Luzon of the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) has   assured enough power supply for the region in the  coming summer months. 

    Engr. Jose Arellano, NGCP regional  head for north Luzon, gave the assurance  at the sidelines of the inauguration of the NGCP Power Training  Center here on Wednesday. 

    In the wake of as persistent reports of “possible” power interruption due to low  supply  and big demand, Arellano said: “I  don’t think that will happen for as long as we have a balance of demand and  generation.”

    Arellano assured that there is “enough  supply of power” since “participation of other sectors and the interruptible load    program” could totally eliminate the problem.

    “Ma-iibsan or totally maiiwasan (It can be eased or totally avoided),” he    said. He also said the NGCP gives out a forecast  to the media on a daily basis. Earlier, Henry “Big Boy” Sy Jr., NGCP   president and CEO, was on hand to lead the ribbon-cutting for the opening of the  NGCP Power Training  Center (PTC) as well  as the unveiling of the building marker and blessing of the NGCP Switchyard. 

    The PTC will serve  as the training hub of the substation maintenance and testing en-  Henry Sy Jr. by the inaugural marker of the  NGCP gineers and technicians in Luzon.
