Fast-Track EC-Led Initiatives in Aid of Rural Electrification Developments


April 16, 2018

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) encouraged members of the Northeast Luzon Electric Cooperatives Association, Inc. (Neleca) to remain actively engaged on massive efforts aimed at unifying their communities in aid of rural electrification developments.

Administrator Edgardo Masongsong made the statement citing the demand for all electric cooperatives (ECs) to prove that they are operationally efficient, if only to silence their critics and detractors in the electric power industry.

Masongsong, in his remarks, recognized the role of Area Managers and CWD Officers as vital frontliners in helping to promote and protect the rights and interests of the member-consumer-owners (MCOs) within their respective coverage areas.

“We need to make the ECs excellently performing because there are several threats facing our [sector],” Masongsong told Neleca officials during a meeting hosted by the Batanes Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Batanelco) in Basco, Batanes last week.

“On the other hand, our national movement has been working hard to show our political leaders and the private sector that we are excellently performing so we need to strengthen our movement,” he added.

The NEA chief called specifically for the fast-tracking of various EC-led initiatives including the creation of a national headquarters, a savings bank, and a foundation that would cater to the needs of all community-owned distribution utilities in times of distress.

“While we are not praying for calamities to happen, even as it almost seems to be the new normal now, I think having a One EC Network Task Force Kapatiran Foundation to readily assist disaster-stricken power co-ops [will serve our communities well],” Masongsong said.

The Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association, Inc. (Philreca), Philippine Federation of Electric Cooperatives (Philfeco) and other allied EC organizations nationwide are expected to support this endeavor.

The administrator likewise proposed that Neleca officials speed up the organization of their member-consumer-owners under the Member-Consumers Empowerment Program (MCEP) to help them achieve these goals. “We have a lot of things to do so we need to move fast,” he said.

Masongsong told them he is even willing to spend his time with the board of directors, general managers, department managers and staff of Neleca-linked ECs to teach them everything they need to know about MCEP so it can finally take-off in their respective co-ops.

Neleca is composed of Batanelco and eight other community-owned distribution utilities namely Cagelco I & II in Cagayan province, Ifelco in Ifugao, Iselco I & II in Isabela, Kaelco in Kalinga, Nuvelco in Nueva Vizcaya and Quirelco in Quirino.

Their nearly two-hour meeting resulted in key agreements such as the P50,000 monthly contribution of each EC to fund their advocacies. Neleca president Presley De Jesus of Iselco I said this is necessary for them to be on equal legal footing with their big corporate rivals.

At the same time, De Jesus reiterated the need for Neleca to hasten the creation of a Regional Procurement Project Committee, which would ease the process of purchasing power supply equipment especially for ECs that are located in topographically challenging areas like Batanelco.

“Calamity season is coming up hence we need to have a regionalized procurement (system) so we can stock up (on power supply materials) and disperse it at the same in case these calamities strike,” said De Jesus, who is also the incumbent president of Philreca.

Other topics discussed during the recently concluded Neleca meeting are the individual concerns of each member ECs, progress reports on their Sitio Electrification Program-funded projects, as well as updates on their system loss reduction and collection efficiency measures. NEA

NEA inks deal with Japanese firm to improve power distribution system, serve more communities in Mindanao


April 17, 2018


The National Electrification Administration (NEA) recently entered into a contract with a Japanese firm for the procurement of distribution line materials and brand new boom trucks which will be used to rehabilitate the power distribution system of the six electric cooperatives (ECS) operating in Mindanao.

General trading company, Nishizawa Limited, bested the four other Japanese participants in the bidding for the "Project for Improvement of Equipment for Power Distribution in Bangsamoro Area."

The project will be financed through a grant aid worth 771-million yen extended by the Government of Japan through Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to Philippine government, which was signed on March 30, 2017.

As the winning bidder, Nishizawa Limited will supply and deliver the power distribution equipment and materials, such as boom trucks (16 units), transformers (425 units), poles, and wires to the six beneficiary ECs in Mindanao.

The Japanese firm will also be in charge of the implementation of training focusing on the handling of insulated wire and operation training of the boom trucks.

The project recipients are Lanao del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Lasureco), Maguindanao Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Magelco), Basilan Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Baselco), Sulu Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Suleco), Tawi-Tawi Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Tawelco), and Siasi Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Siaselco).

"The Philippine government thru NEA expresses deep appreciation to the Japanese government thru JICA for its immediate response to the call of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to help the country’s electrification program in the rural ARMM," Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said.

"The assistance will further the development of the ARMM, especially the BASULTA (Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi) area which had been identified by the President as a priority for socio-economic development," the NEA chief added.

Signing the contract were NEA Deputy Administrator for Technical Services Engr. Artis Nikki Tortola and Nishizawa Limited project manager Sumio Fujioka at the office of Oriental Consultants Global Co., Ltd., JICA consultant, on April 3, 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.

Also present at the ceremony was NEA Engineering Department manager Engr. Ferdinand Villareal.NEA

The changes include Deputy Administrator Atty. Goldelio Rivera being moved from Electric Cooperatives Management Services (ECMS) to Legal Services. Deputy Administrator for Corporate Resources and Financial Services (CRFS) Sonia San Diego is the new ECMS chief.

Also reshuffled are Deputy Administrator Atty. Rossan Rosero-Lee from Legal Services to Special Concerns Office; and Atty. Vicar Loureen Lofranco from Corporate Communications and Social Marketing Office (CCSMO) to CRFS as deputy administrator in an acting capacity.

Task Force Duterte Abra Power gains ground in rehabilitating Abreco


03 April 2018


Task Force Duterte Abra Power has hit the ground running and has made significant strides in rehabilitating the troubled Abra Electric Cooperative (Abreco) in just two months since the takeover.

Abreco Acting General Manager (AGM) Charito Mabitazan, in a report to the National Electrification Administration (NEA), said they already paid in full the utility's P7.319-million power bill to the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) for February.

Mabitazan also disclosed that Abreco's power bill to the Philippine Electricity Market Corporation (PEMC) for the month of February, which amounted to P20.336 million, was fully paid last March 28.

Further, the power distribution utility also made an additional partial payment of P1 million to PEMC in arrears. The Abreco employees had already received their salaries for the period March 16 to 31.

Despite these accomplishments, however, NEA Deputy Administrator and Task Force chair Atty. Goldelio Rivera expressed dismay over attempts to derail the Task Force's rehabilitation efforts, which aim to prevent Abreco from collapse and improve the delivery of service to its member-consumer-owners (MCOs).

"This demolition job may have been perpetrated by people who committed unbridled irregularities running to hundreds of millions in unaccounted funds and those who benefitted. They are trying to muddle the issues. We are dismayed that instead of lending a hand to run after the culprits, they try to sabotage our efforts to turnaround Abreco," he said.

"During the previous management, there was total breakdown of internal control. There were unabated irregular disbursements. We just took over and they are making a lot of noise. For many years, Abreco was run like piggy bank and nobody complained," he added.

The NEA official likewise explained the role of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in the performance of the duties of the Task Force. "We need the PNP because our men are under threat," he said.

Last February, NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong ordered the takeover of Abreco after PEMC issued default and suspension notices because of the distribution utility's failure to pay its dues which ballooned to over P200 million.

Aside from PEMC, NEA data showed Abreco has also outstanding obligations with other power suppliers and service providers including NGCP (P8.626 million), Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. (P421.444 million), and Aboitiz Power Corp. - AP Renewables, Inc. (P9.856 million). NEA
