NEA undergoes major reshuffle to improve efficiency, performance

In a move aimed to improve its overall operational efficiency and performance, the National Electrification Administration (NEA) has undergone a major sectoral and departmental reshuffle effective April 2.

According to Office Order No. 2018-067 dated March 26, NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said the "new assignments provide, among others, for an opportunity to exhibit leadership and demonstrate people management, with the ideal of enhancing administrative competencies and introducing innovations to increase overall operational efficiency and performance of the Agency."

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.

Corporate Planning Office (CPO) department manager, Engr. Roderick Padua is now the new head of Information Technology and Communication Services Department (ITCSD). Meanwhile, Engr. Francisco Caymo is the new department manager of CPO.

ITCSD Department Manager Ana Rosa Papa is reassigned to the Office for Performance Assessment and Special Studies (OPASS) while Rosarita Salvador, public relations chief, is designated as Acting Department Manager for CCSMO.

"As leaders and managers in their assigned sectors and/or departments, (they) are expected to assume the functions and responsibilities in their respective sectors/departments, primarily geared towards the objective of achieving the NEA Vision and the accomplishment of the mandated Mission," the NEA chief said in the order.

This is the first major reshuffle of sector and department heads implemented since Administrator Masongsong assumed office in November 2016. NEA

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

March 20, 2018

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has welcomed the appointment of Atty. Janeene Depay-Colingan as the new Executive Director and General Manager of the Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association, Inc. (Philreca).


Philreca announced the appointment of Colingan on Monday, March 19, making her the first woman to take on the role. She replaced former Philreca general manager Wendell Ballesteros.


Philreca president Presley De Jesus said Colingan's extensive experience and impeccable track record made her the right fit to lead the association into its next phase.


"With her extensive knowledge and exposure in the operations and management of the electric cooperatives and our aspirations in the Rural Electrification Movement, we are confident that she would bring fresh ideas, innovations and strategic initiatives to our advocacy in support of rural electrification and consumer-driven reforms in the power industry," De Jesus said.


NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong welcomed Philreca's decision to designate Colingan as its general manager and executive director. He likewise expressed satisfaction with the changes being made by Philreca to make the organization more effective.


"Atty. Janeene Depay-Colingan is equipped with knowledge, skills and attitude required of the position and to take the cudgels in the execution of the policies, programs and projects set forth by the Board of Directors led by its dynamic and responsive president in the person of Presley De Jesus," the NEA chief said. 


Meanwhile, National Center of Electric Cooperative Consumers, Inc. (NCECCO) national chairman Akmad Mamalinta extended his warmest congratulations to Colingan, and assured her of their support. 


"Atty. Colingan is a well-respected figure in the EC sector. Her assumption as Executive Director of Philreca is a breath of fresh air. She has the support of NCECCO," Mamalinta said.


Colingan is currently the Consultant Coordinator of the Regulatory Affairs Office (RAO) Team of the NEA. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Commerce major in Banking and Finance, and a Bachelor of Laws from Saint Louis University, Baguio City.


Organized in July 1979, Philreca is a non-stock, non-profit national organization, which is comprised of 121 electric cooperatives operating in the country. Its member-ECs have provided electricity service for more than 12 million power consumers throughout the country. NEA

Gov't, ECs seek ways to bridge electricity access gap in rural areas

Media Release

March 26, 2018

The electric cooperatives (ECs) under the supervision of the National Electrification Administration (NEA) have reaffirmed their commitment to work together to bridge electricity access gap, especially in remote and far-flung communities with poor living conditions.

In a recent dialogue with the Department of Energy (DOE) and the NEA, the general managers of different ECs nationwide committed to submit a master plan identifying the unserved and underserved sitios within their respective franchise areas.

This was in response to the recent directive of President Rodrigo Duterte to DOE and the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) to expedite rural electrification by allowing the entry of private sector, giving the communities more options.

Among the agreements reached during the meeting was for the ECs to prepare and submit in two months a master plan, the purpose of which is to provide a roadmap to meet a specific goal: access to electricity for all by 2022.

The DOE, NEA and National Power Corporation (Napocor) will also join forces and consolidate their resources to address the concerns of the ECs with respect to lighting up the rural areas that have no electricity. And to assist the ECs to meet their action timelines, composite monitoring teams will be formed.

In his message during the dialogue, Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi underscored the role the ECs play in uplifting the economic status of underprivileged Filipinos.

"Electricity creates wealth. It empowers people to create wealth. So let's give them the opportunity to uplift their lives by giving them the electricity that they need," Cusi said.

He urged the ECs to face the challenges in bridging the electricity access gap and be creative in lighting up the rural communities. He said ECs should also find ways to lower down their electricity costs and systems loss to increase their power efficiency.

"The 2022 (timeline) let's make it happen earlier. Make it happen in 2020 or even earlier... I hope that we can put it in our hearts to really find ways on how to serve our community, especially the less privileged people," he said.

Moreover, Secretary Cusi assured the power distribution utilities of government's assistance.

NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong, meanwhile, welcomed the DOE's support and underlined the agency's commitment to total electrification.

Masongsong said the NEA and the ECs are "serious" about ensuring electricity access to every Filipino household by 2022 as envisioned by President Duterte.

A total of 114 general managers and representatives from 109 ECs nationwide attended the dialogue with DOE and NEA officials held on Thursday (March 22) at the NEA H.E.S Auditorium in Diliman, Quezon City. NEA

NEA, ECs vow completion of rural electrification projects by 2022

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) and its partner electric cooperatives (ECs) have pledged their full commitment to complete all pending state-funded rural electrification projects by 2022.

The commitment was made during the ECs General Managers' Session held recently at the NEA H.E.S Auditorium in Diliman, Quezon City that gathered 134 delegates, consisting of general managers, board members and representatives from 112 ECs.

Addressing the EC participants, Administrator Edgardo Masongsong reminded them of their mandate to ensure that the benefit of electricity reaches every Filipino household. He also urged the ECs to come up with strategies to fast-track efforts in achieving energy access for all by 2022.

"The ways of the past were already proven inadequate to the demands of the country's growing rural economy. We have to catch up, double our efforts and ensure that our services are more than enough to drive the Duterte administration's economic legacy after 2022," the NEA chief said.

NEA Deputy Administrator for Technical Services Engr. Artis Nikki Tortola, meanwhile, said there is still much work to be done but assured the ECs of the agency's commitment to providing necessary assistance to help them in carrying out the electrification projects.

"The end goal is [to ensure] that all potential consumers are energized. NEA will adjust accordingly to the strategies that the electric cooperatives will be taking in order to [keep the projects within] the proposed timeline," Tortola said.

Latest data from the rural electrification agency show there are still 23,464 sitios in the entire country that do not have access to electricity. Of the total number of unenergized sitios, 19,740 sitios are identified as "implementable" to date, most of which are in Mindanao with 8,535 sitios, followed by Luzon with 6,541 sitios, and Visayas with 4,664 sitios.

The figures are based on updates submitted by the ECs to the NEA in a series of Sitio Electrification Program (SEP)-Phase 2 summits conducted nationwide by its Corporate Planning Department, in coordination with the Accelerated Total Electrification Office, from November 2017 to February 2018.

For this year, the NEA and its partner ECs target to bring electricity to 1,817 sitios--560 in Luzon, 552 in Visayas, and 705 in Mindanao.

Further, the agency is requesting P5-billion from the national government to finance the 3,626 electrification projects under SEP for 2019.

Last February 21, the NEA gathered the general managers of different ECs under its supervision to discuss, among others, the progress of rural electrification projects in their respective coverage areas.

Before the assembly ended, the EC participants pledged their commitment to strongly support the government's Rural Electrification Program by fast-tracking the implementation of SEP, Barangay Line Enhancement (BLEP) and Household Electrification Programs (HHEP).

They also committed to "complete and energize the REP projects for BLEP, SEP, HHEP for the year 2018-2022 and adhere to the rules and regulations of the NEA concerning the efficient utilization and timely liquidation of subsidy funds. NEA
