Location on ProPertY

General

No building shall be constructed unless it adjoins or has direct access to a public space, yard or

point one-third the distance from an assumed vertical plane located where the fire-resistive

protection of openings is first required to the location on property whichever is the least restrictive'

Distance shall be measured at right angles from the property line. When openings in exterior walls

applicable and(PEC-1) andPart2

ON 2. Electrical Regulations

2.1 General

consistent provisions of the two- (2) codes: Philippine Electrical Code Part 1

(PEC-2) and Philippine Mechanical Codes shall form part of this Ordinance.

\*\--H'7\ 2.1.7 Arcaded Sidewalk: Arcaded sidewalk is not compatible with the usual open supply line

construction unless back street is available for the distribution system. Proposed arcaded

sidewalk should therefore be reconciled with the development of the power diskibutionsystem in the area.

2.1.2 Safety of Construction Personnel: The building construction shall be responsible innotifying the electric utility if the nearby power lines may pose hazard to his workers. If theworking clearance is not enough, the power lines need to be guarded temporarily.

2.1.3 Falling debris Form High-rise Building Construction: Falling debris from high-rise buildingconskuction can cause contamination of line insulators if not outright circuit trip outresulting to service interruptions. Interceptors to catch that debris must be provided.

2.1.4 Clearances specified: The clearances specified are the minimum allowed for safety and donot consider the effect of electromagnetic freld (EMF) to human being. The effect of EMFis not considered in specifliing clearances to buildings, etc., since science has yet to proveconclusively the adverse effect of EMF to people.

2.1.5 Tree management: Tall and fast growing tress should not be planted beneath poser linesalong streets. The electrical utility firm has the right to trim offending trees before they

cause circuit intemrption.

On Clearances of Support Structures from other Objects

2.2.1 Measurement of Clearances: Clearances are measured surface to surface. When measuring

the clearances, energized metallic hardware connected to the supply line shal1 be

consideredaspartoftheline conductor. Metallic bases of potheads surge arresters and

similar devices on the other hand shall be considered as part of the support structure.

2.2.2 Clearance of Support Structures from other Objects

2.2.2.1 From fire hydrants: not less than nine hundred (900) mm.2.2.2.2 From streets, roads and highways: portion of the structures and attached

equipment not more than four point sixty (4.60) m above the roadway must have

a sufficient distance to avoid contact by passing ordinary vehicle. At the curb, the

distance must not be less than one hundred fifty (150) mm.

On Clearances of Energized Parts

2.3.1 Covered and bared conductors shall be considered for all clearance requirements.2.3.2 Yertical Clearances of Wires, Conductors, Cables and Equipment over Roadways:

2.3.2.1 The vertical clearances herein given refer to the minimum allowable verticalclearances ofthe conductor and will not require further correction to account foradditional sag due to high temperature operation or for long span installation. Nowind displacement is taken into account with the values given.

2.3.2.2 The voltages in Table 6 are line-to-ground voltages. If the supply line-to-groundvoltage is not defined, the line-toJine voltage shall be used.

2.3.2.3 PEC-2 provides the required clearances over a number of roadway conditions.

The vertical clearances specified in Table 6 are the allowable clearances over

roadways subject to truck traffic.
