The mushrooming of subdivisions and shopping malls in the western part of Davao Light and Power Co.’s franchise proves how economy is booming in the different parts of Davao City as well as its neighboring cities. One indication of the growing economy is the increasing demand for electricity particularly in the areas of Mintal and Calinan.
As answer to the ongoing development and various business activities in these areas, Davao Light inaugurated its new 33MVA Tugbok Substation last June 8.
“With the increasing customers, the existing substations namely Puan and Calinan will no longer be able to carry additional load growth in the future. The Tugbok substation will provide additional capacity and improved service reliability to new customers and those de-loaded from the nearby substations.” said Arturo Milan, Davao Light EVP and COO.
Currently, the Tugbok substation is serving the areas of Mintal from Network Bank going to Calinan proper.
