NGCP continues with the restoration activities of all areas affected by Typhoon Quinta, given the large areas of land devastated by the typhoon. Mobilization of line personnel and equipment continue, and simultaneous restoration activities are being conducted on the areas already accessible.
A total of 33 line gangs, or 264 personnel, working 24/7 when weather and safety conditions permit, have been deployed to the affected areas to expedite restoration works. Additional 12 line gangs were activated from North Luzon, NCR, and Visayas to augment the 20 line gangs originally deployed from South Luzon.
As of 5PM today, 27 October, two 500kV lines, one 230kV line, and five 69kV lines are still de-energized.
Assessment and restoration efforts began as soon as weather permitted, even while the typhoon was still within the Philippine area of responsibility. NGCP has so far fully restored transmission services to the affected provinces of Pampanga, Laguna, Quezon, Albay, and Sorsogon.
NGCP commits to restore the remaining areas of Batangas and Camarines Sur at the soonest possible time, barring unforeseen circumstances. NGCP restoration targets are as follows:
BATELEC I and II – October 28
CASURECO 1 – October 31
CASURECO 2 – October 31
CASURECO 3 – October 29
CASURECO 4 – October 31
Please note that this schedule refers only to transmission services, and not to distribution services or generating capacity.  For complete restoration of power, all distribution and transmission facilities and sufficient generating capacity must be available. We defer to the Department of Energy and/or the National Electrification Authority for information on distribution and generation restoration. (PR)
