Meralco commissions new North Caloocan GIS substation

Meralco recently commissioned its new North Caloocan 115 kilovolts (kV)–34.5 kV Gas-Insulated Switchgear (GIS) Substation located along Quirino Highway, Novaliches, Quezon City which unloads the forecasted critical load of Novaliches and Camarin power transformer banks.

The project involved the commissioning of a new 83-Megavolt ampere (MVA) power transformer, one (1) 115-kV GIS, one (1) 34-kV GIS, four (4) new distribution feeders, and other substation equipment.  The new substation will serve the growing demand in the areas of Quezon City, Caloocan City North, and portions of San Jose del Monte in Bulacan, including the expected power requirement of the MRT-7 once operational.

Meralco and its subsidiaries are continuously working to improve its distribution system, delivering safe, adequate and reliable power service to its customers as part of its commitment to #KeepingTheLightsOn and to #PowerTheGoodLife.
