Meralco recently commissioned its new 50 MVA transformer bank no. 2 in its Pulilan 69 kV – 13.8 kV Substation located along the Plaridel-Pulilan Diversion Road, Pulilan, Bulacan, providing additional capacity to its existing 33 MVA transformer bank. Likewise, this project provides switching flexibility during contingencies, ensuring continuous power supply of the customers served by the said substation in the areas of Pulilan, Bustos, Baliwag, and Plaridel in Bulacan.
The newly installed transformer bank will also improve voltage regulation and reduce technical system loss in the area. Despite the continued implementation of community quarantine measures throughout the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Meralco and its subsidiaries are continuously working hard to improve its distribution system in order to provide safe, adequate, and reliable electric service to its customers.
