Quezon will become the “most powerful” province over the next five years with the ability to generate up to 5,000 megawatts of power, Governor David Suarez said.

“By 2019, Quezon province will be the most powerful province,” he told reporters.

Suarez said several power plants are set to be constructed in the province over the next five years to boost the combined capacity of 1,195 MW generated by the two coal power plants currently operating in Quezon.

The existing Pagbilao coal plant with a 735-MW capacity is operated by TeaM Energy Philippines while  while the expansion called Pagbilao 3 is jointly owned by TeaM Energy and Aboitiz Power Corp.

A new 460-MW coal plant will also be added to the existing 46-MW Mauban coal power plant owned by Quezon Power Philippines Ltd.

Aside from the expansion projects, Suarez said Meralco PowerGen will also put up a 1,200-MW coal plant in Atimonan, which will also be run on coal.

Another 600 MW would also come from the LNG project of Energy World Corp. of Australia.

“EWC, by second quarter, they should be running on test capacity.  Last I heard, they will pick up around 400 MW,” he said.
