DOE to ensure uninterrupted power supply in Covid vaccine preservation

The Department of Energy (DOE) is taking measures to ensure uninterrupted availability of continuous and reliable power supply at all Covid-19 vaccine storage facilities in the country.

In a statement, DOE spokesperson Undersecretary Felix William B. Fuentebella said they are studying the feasibility of undertaking a “triple safeguard” approach to securing power services to ensure the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.

Fuentebella said there would be three power backups.

“The first line would be coming from the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP), the second from the distribution utilities, while the third and final back up would be the generators provided by the facility itself or the local government unit,” he said.

The DOE will closely coordinate with the concerned government agencies, LGUs, and other related industries to help ensure the success of the national vaccination program.

Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said the DOE would see to it that the entire energy family would be ready to cooperate, collaborate, and actively participate as ‘backliners’.
