This page discusses my obsession with the Philippine power network (including but not limited to power lines and related infrastructure).

The network of power lines are an important part of infrastructure networks in any country. The Philippines is no exception.

Among other things, I specialize in adding power lines and related infrastructure in OpenStreetMap, especially in the Philippines.

Status of the Philippine Power Grid

Most power transmission lines are owned and/or operated by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, while power generating sites are owned by various companies. It is currently divided into three grids: the Luzon Power Grid, the Visayas Power Grid, and the Mindanao Power Grid. They are further subdivided into dozens of transmission lines, which carry up to 500 kilo volts of energy

Why are you obsessed with the Philippine power networks?

I am interested with power lines since it brings the juice needed to power up many items (including computers). Also, I'm not a fan of power outages.
