Castro’s prophecy of darkness

The darkness is real, but so is the potential for a brighter future

In the heart of Iloilo City, shadows are stirring, threatening to plunge the metropolis into an abyss of darkness.

Roel Z. Castro, the vigilant president and CEO of MORE Power, sounds the alarm, a prophetic voice warning of the impending doom if we remain indifferent to the delays in the crucial NGCP Iloilo substation project.

In a recent inquiry chaired by Rep. Lord Allan Jay Velasco, Castro, a modern-day oracle, emphasized the urgency of constructing the 3×100 MVA substation in La Paz district.

He unveiled a grim prophecy: “If the Iloilo substation isn’t operational by the end of 2024, Iloilo City will face rotating brownouts due to increased power demand.”

As the saga unfolds, lawyer Mark Anthony Actub of NGCP assures us that negotiations for the substation’s land acquisition are in their final stages.

But skepticism lingers, casting shadows over Actub’s assurances.

Castro, a lone hero battling the forces of uncertainty, warns the construction timeline proposed by NGCP raises doubts about meeting the deadline.

“If the construction takes 405 calendar days, we are at risk of rotating brownouts, considering there are only 365 days in a year,” he solemnly declared.

Castro’s foresight paints a chilling picture — a city grappling with darkness, a consequence of procrastination and sluggish progress.

He weaves a narrative of a small project, seemingly inconspicuous in the grand tapestry of NGCP’s plans, yet holding the key to Iloilo City’s fate.

The city’s lifeline, the CNP3 project, weaves through Panay, Negros, and Cebu, offering a lifeline to prevent prolonged power blackouts.

As Castro bemoans the delayed Iloilo substation, he points to the CNP3 as a beacon of hope.

The completion of this intricate web of power transmission lines promises to be the antidote, a safeguard against the looming darkness.

But why should the people of Iloilo City, be concerned?

Castro, in his stark wisdom, paints a canvas of consequences.

Rotating brownouts, the harbingers of chaos, will disrupt our lives, our businesses, and our city’s progress.

The economic center of Region 6 will be crippled, shrouded in uncertainty and instability.

In this suspenseful saga, Castro’s words echo through the city streets, creeping into every home.

These aren’t mere cautionary tales; they’re urgent calls for action, a rallying cry against the encroaching shadows poised to swallow us whole.

However, in every tale of foreboding, there lies a glimmer of hope.

If we heed Castro’s warnings, if we rally behind his proactive initiatives, there is a chance for a different ending.

The completion of the Iloilo substation, the linchpin of our power supply, could mark a turning point.

Imagine a future where the CNP3 stands as a symbol of resilience, where the 3×100 MVA substation guards Iloilo city against the darkness.

Castro’s vision includes a thriving metropolis, unburdened by the specter of rotating brownouts, where businesses flourish, and homes are filled with uninterrupted light.

As readers of this chilling tale, we must not remain passive spectators.

Castro’s vigilance demands our response.

Let us rally behind his cause, urging the powers that be to expedite the substation’s completion.

The benefits are tangible — a city free from the shackles of power shortages, a community thriving in the glow of uninterrupted electricity.

The people should heed Castro’s words as they would heed the warning of a modern-day oracle.

The darkness is real, but so is the potential for a brighter future.

Let us not succumb to the shadows; instead, let us be the architects of our illuminated destiny.

The choice is ours, and it begins with embracing Castro’s call to action.
