See the external sitedaily power situation in Luzon, Visayan and Mindanao in the website of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP).

NGCP is the Philippine government entity that operates the power grid of the nation. It provides electricity to Misamis Oriental from two major generators in Mindanao -- the Agus River Hydroelectic Plant in Iligan City and the Pulangi IV Hydroelectric Plant in Bukidnon. TransCo distributes the energy from these to the Cagayan de Oro Electric Power and Light Company (CEPALCO), and Misamis Oriental Rural Electric Service Cooperative (MORESCO) I and II.

The three utilities then sell the power to end-users: CEPALCO takes charge of industrial, commercial and residential consumers in Cagayan de Oro and some areas in Misamis Oriental, like Tagoloan, Jasaan and Villanueva. MORESCO I (609 MVA) runs the easter municipalities and MORESCO II (30 MVA) the western areas.

This scheme has energized 98 percent of the province. But some power-intensive companies connect directly to TransCo.

The province also benefits from non-hydro sources:

  • The 1-MW Solar Photovoltaic (PV) plant in Indahag, which is connected to the 7-MW Bubunawan Power Company (BPC) Run-of-River Hydropower in Baungon, Bukidnon -- together the first PV-Hydro tandem project in the world.
  • The US$350-million, 210-MW coal-fired power project of STEAG State Power Incorporated (SPI) at the PHIVIDEC Industrial Estate, supplying 15 percent of the power need of Mindanao.
  • Mindanao Energy Systems (MINERGY), a diesel plant with a total capacity of 18.90 MW. It is a subsidiary of CEPALCO.

The Northern Mindanao Power Corporation in Lugait has not been operating for years. It is a project of Alson’s Power Holding Corporation, which used to operate a Bunker "C"-fired Diesel Power Generating Plant with an annual registered capacity of 58 MW.
