THE National Power Corp. (Napocor) is planning to build power plants with 5 megawatts (MW) of generation capacity each in the provinces of Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi.

Napocor President Ma. Gladys Cruz-Sta. Rita said construction will be completed within two-and-a-half years, with the first 2 MW in each of the three provinces to be ready by 2016.  All power facilities will cost P800 million.

The Napocor chief, likewise, appealed to the local governments to assist the state firm in securing new areas for the new power plants.

Meanwhile, Sta. Rita urged all electric cooperatives to pay off their debts owed to the state firm. The three provinces owe the Napocor P3.4 billion in unpaid fees.
