After overcoming the power shortage crisis, the Philippines still required the construction and expansion of power generation, transmission and substation facilities as further increase in the power demand was expected with the economic growth. In the Philippines, a plan was underway to connect the major islands by transmission lines to form a nationwide grid, aiming at ensuring reliable power supply and controlling the power generation capacity through the efficient use of emergency power. As of 1995, most of the main interconnection lines we re completed or under construction. The Leyte-Bohol route and the Leyte-Mindanao route were the only main routes that were left unconnected.
