Seen in photos is the newly energized 100-MVA, 115 kV – 34.5 kV replacement power transformer with On-Load Tap Changer (OTLC) at its Dolores Substation located at  Philec Road, Barangay Dolores, Taytay, Rizal.

This new power transformer will improve system reliability, preventing prolonged power outages to customers in Antipolo City, Binangonan, Taytay and Cardona in the province of Rizal. The OTLC feature, which was not present in the previous transformer, can optimally balance the load among the feeders served by the new power transformer and the other power transformers at the adjacent Cainta, Masinag and Taguig Substations, and enhance system flexibility during contingencies.

Despite the heightened community quarantine measures imposed within the NCR+ bubble due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, Meralco personnel are continuously working round the clock to execute vital capital projects to provide safe, adequate, and reliable energy service for all its customers.
