Fast tracking of electrification projects in Palawan pushed

The provincial government of Palawan called on both the Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Electrification Administration (NEA) to speed up ongoing projects aimed at illuminating its remote villages and island municipalities.

Palawan Governor Jose Chaves Alvarez and Representative Gil Acosta (3rd District) personally conveyed this request to Administrator Edgardo Masongsong who paid them a courtesy call on Friday (May 19) at the provincial capitol in Puerto Princesa City.

In a statement emailed over the weekend, Masongsong said the provincial government officials asked for the completion of the Sitio Electrification Program (SEP) and the Barangay Line Enhancement Program (BLEP), which the NEA has been implementing.

“[They] humbly requested DOE and NEA to fast track the electrification of the province through SEP and BLEP, including its island municipalities, barangays and sitios through renewable electrification with the use of stand-alone solar panels,” the administrator noted.

Masongsong was in Puerto Princesa City to meet with the Board of Directors (BOD) of Palawan Electric Cooperative (Paleco) before gracing its 37th Annual General Membership Assembly (AGMA) on Saturday (May 20).

Paleco is an AA-rated electric cooperative (EC) serving a total of 19 cities and municipalities in the province. It is currently led by its BOD chairman Jeffrey Tan-Endriga and General Manager Ric Zambales, Sr.

Latest data from the NEA showed that all 371 barangays under the coverage area of Paleco are already energized but it has yet to reach 100 percent of its estimated 215,000 potential connections.

Masongsong acknowledged the need to help Palawan fill its energy requirements as he found out that several of its barangays were waived of their Qualified Third Party (QTP) applications, rendering some 812 of its sitios unenergized.

A QTP is a DOE-sponsored mechanism under the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001 where interested parties can come in to provide electric service in far-off and unviable areas that the franchised distribution utility is unable to reach.

“Pero ang maganda sa Palawan, ‘yung provincial government at lahat ng mga stakeholder, they were able to come up with the so-called Palawan Island Comprehensive Power Plan,” Masongsong remarked after the flag ceremony at the NEA headquarters on Monday (May 22).

In addressing the 37th AGMA of Paleco, Masongsong assured its member-consumer-owners that the NEA remains steadfast in fulfilling its mandate to energize the countryside, in accordance with the five-point electricity agenda of President Rodrigo Duterte and the nine-point agenda of Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.

Engr. Artis Nikki Tortola of the NEA Technical Services Department and Mr. Guillermo Paz of the NEA Consumer Development and Protection Division joined the administrator in the recently concluded trip.

BOHECO I Celebrates Feast of Patron Saint, St. Isidore-The Farmer

       

The Board of Directors under the leadership of Board President Exequiel H. Agunod had unanimously approved a resolution installing a Patron Saint in the cooperative to be celebrated every year. Among the Saints nominated/suggested, Saint Isidore-The Farmer was chosen considering that He is the Patron Saint of the municipality where the coop is located. St. Isidore was also the model of all farmers and workers because of his great belief in God. His life story revealed that before going to his farm, he goes to church first to thank God and pray for His Divine Guidance. He did God first before anything else.

On May 6, 2017, the first fiesta in honor of Saint Isidore-The Farmer was celebrated at the main office. A Holy Mass followed after the procession around the compound. Rev. Fr. Gilbert Ilogon, the parish priest of St. Isidore-The Farmer Parish in Tubigon celebrated the Holy Mass. The celebration was attended by the members of the Board, management and staff and employees.  Lunch was served after the short program.

The feast of Coop Patron Saint, St. Isidore, The Farmer shall be celebrated every first Saturday of May every year.

NEA urges creation of bank tailored to electricity consumers

Citing its “tremendous potential,” the National Electrification Administration (NEA) has urged electric cooperative consumers to “come together” to establish a bank dedicated to them.

NEA chief Edgardo Masongsong made the statement before the Barangay Member Consumers Electrification Committee (BMCEC) on April 8 at the Fibeco Consumers Training Center in Maramag, Bukidnon.

In his message, Masongsong urged the Rural Electrification Financial Corporation to convert itself into a banking institution for the consumers. However, if this is not heeded, he enjoined the consumers to create the EC Consumers Bank.

“With 11.8 million EC consumers all over the country, you hold tremendous potential. Imagine what you can do to challenge the old families in the banking and financial sector,” Masongsong said.

The NEA administrator likewise urged the EC consumers to get involved in the production of food and other agricultural goods, in industries, and in manufacturing.

He also echoed previous pronouncements that consumers should get significantly involved in power generation so that stakeholders can get itself out of the “stranglehold of the elite and the oligarchs who have entrenched themselves in the power generation industry.”

Meanwhile the First Bukidnon Electric Coopearative, Inc (Fibeco) consumers at the said event also elected the first municipal chapters and the fourth provincial chapter of the newly established National Center of Electric Cooperative Consumers (NCECCO).

Categorized as Triple A in the 2016 EC Overall Performance Assessment, Fibeco serves the electricity needs of the 12 municipalities and one city in the southern part of Bukidnon which include Dangcagan, Damulog, Don Carlos, Kadingilan, Kalilangan, Kibawe, Kitaotao, Maramag, Pangantucan, Quezon, San Fernando, and the City of Valencia.

Its franchise area also covers the Municipality of Wao in the province of Lano del Sur.

NEA seeks to revitalize 'ailing' electric coops; summit for electric consumers to be held in Tagum City

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) is eyeing the creation of more task forces to take over the operations of “ailing” electric cooperatives (ECs) or those "on the brink of bankruptcy."

NEA Chief Edgardo Masongsong issued this statement during the press conference for the official launch of the first National Summit of Electric Consumers on Thursday, April 6, at Ponce Suites Gallery Hotel in Davao City.

Masongsong said Task Force Duterte have been activated for Lanao Sur and Camarines area to enforce specific governance programs and help Lanao del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Lasureco)/Lanao Sur Power and Camarines Sur III Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Casureco III) become more economically and operationally viable.

"We are creating more task forces to cover the 10 electric cooperatives that are categorized as ailing," he said.

The creation of task forces forms part of NEA's legal power to exercise step-in rights both for ailing ECs and those whose operations can still be turned around. "When you say "ailing," there are so many parameters like the issue of financial capability, technical capability, institutional capability and legal capability," the Administrator added.

Step-in rights refer to the legal authority vested in the Agency to implement interventions that will address an ailing EC's arrearages in power supply purchases, high systems loss, low collection efficiency, operating loss, among others.

Masongsong cited the case of Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Daneco) recently categorized by NEA as "C" in the EC Overall Performance Assessment.

He said the agency activated early this year the Task Force Duterte Northern Davao Power to take over the operations and management of Daneco and ensure its compliance to NEA-set performance parameters and standards.

"The task force is now settling down in order to take over really the whole operation," the NEA chief said. "The ball is now with the Cooperative Development Authority or the CDA to cancel the registration."

Administrator Masongsong previously said that the task force was formed to bring closure to the legal problems that hounded Daneco which affected its member-consumer-owners.

Meanwhile, the Administrator expressed support for the 1st National Summit of Electric Consumers scheduled to take place on April 26 in Tagum City, Davao del Norte. Around 5,000 delegates are expected to attend the conference.

Organized by the National Center of Electric Cooperative Consumers (NCECCO) in coordination with NEA, the activity is aimed at finding solutions to address the urgent and strategic issues confronting the electricity consumers.

The 2017 NEA-Electric Cooperatives (EC) Consultative Conference and Recognition of Outstanding ECs will also be held in Tagum City on April 27 and 28.

The two-day activity, which will bring together around 1,200 delegates from 121 ECs nationwide, will discuss initiatives toward the strengthening of partnerships among NEA, the ECs, and the consumers.
