Electicity Problems Alert
Constant alerts are now visible. These are due to the high cost of electricity and the lack of supply. NGCP is a private corporation in charge of operating, maintaining, and developing the country’s power grid. It is an interconnected system that transmits gigawatts of power at thousands of volts from where it is made to where it is needed. BBM explains the effects of his father’s abandoned power projects.
The Visionary Electric Projects of FEM
The late President Ferdinand Marcos already knew that the country would soon face the power crises happening during the pandemic. That was why he pushed for geothermal technology and nuclear power plants during his time. However, they were abandoned in 1986 during the EDSA mutiny. Now, 3 of the existing electric plants are shut down. That’s why the vaccine supplies are in danger.
Renewable Energy Sources
The windmill and solar electricity systems are now in an advanced state. The citizens of the country can greatly benefit from it. To be able to do that, changes in the laws are crucial. Lawmakers must study the appropriateness of such rules with the present time. Bongbong Marcos believes that renewable energy is the key. This is the kind of supply that will never run out, he added. Hydroelectric power may also be the future. It’s a relief to know that the Philippines has a vast supply of raw hydrogen necessary for its production.
