The diesel plant in Iligan will start off generating 20 megawatts daily until it eventually reaches its 100 megawatts generating capacity. It is expected to resume operations in April. It’s full restoration is seen by the end of the year.

The government is also working on the rehabilitation of the Agus-Pulangi Power Plants. Once done, the power facilities can supply more than 50 percent of Mindanao’s power requirement. Antonino said the capacity of the 59-year old Agus-Pulangi Power Plants is now only about 570 megawatts from its former capacity of 1,000 megawatts.
