NEA eyes 100 percent sitio electrification by 2022


21 July 2017

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) is targeting 100 percent electrification of sitios across the country by 2022.

Speaking at the 5th Annual Philippines Power and Electricity Week held at Paranaque City on Wednesday, NEA Chief Edgardo Masongsong said that from 2011 to 2016, the agency has completed the energization of 32,441 target sitios.

Masongsong said 23,464 sitios in the country have yet to be energized through the Sitio Electrification Program (SEP), and the cost to electrify one sitio is more or less P1 million.

To enable NEA and its partner electric cooperatives to meet the target of energizing the remaining intended SEP beneficiaries, Masongsong said an estimated budget of P5 billion a year is needed.

The state agency aims to energize 2,410 sitios this year and 1,800 sitios in 2018. The funding allotted by the Department of Budget and Management for the SEP next year is only P1.8 billion, he said.

"We hope that by 2019 to 2022, we will be getting between P4.8-billion to P5.2-billion per annum so we will be able to energize all these sitios until 2022," Masongsong said.

"By 2022," according to the former party-list representative, "we hope that the last household will be served with electricity."

The NEA chief was invited to speak at the 5th Annual Philippines Power and Electricity Week on the current status of the Rural Electrification Program of the Philippine government.

During the conference, Masongsong also discussed the challenges faced by the agency and the 121 electric cooperatives in the implementation of the rural electrification program, foremost of which is the devastation in the wake of natural disasters.

He also talked about the initiatives being undertaken by the NEA to improve the financial and operational performance of the 10 electric cooperatives identified as "ailing." He also presented the five-point electricity agenda of President Rodrigo Duterte.

Apart from Masongsong, Energy Undersecretary Felix William Fuentebella and Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy, were also among the invited speakers at the conference. ###

NEA chief leads ceremonial switch-on of SEP in Surigao del Sur

BISLIG CITY, Surigao del Sur – National Electrification Administration (NEA) Edgardo Masongsong on Thursday (July 20) spearheaded the switch-on ceremony for the electrification of sitios within the coverage area of the Surigao del Sur I Electric Coopeartive, Inc. (Surseco I) during the distribution utulity’s 46th founding anniversary celebration.

Masongsong was assisted by Energy Undersecretary Benito Ranque, Surseco I General Manager Joceler Moralda, and the Board of Directors led by President Pacinta Saligumba. The switch-on ceremony was held at Surseco I’s newly inaugurated Member-Consumer-Owners (MCO) Center in San Fernando, Bislig City.

In his address, Masongsong thanked Surseco I for helping NEA in its continuing efforts to bring light to the sitios or far-flung areas in different parts of the country under the government’s so-called Sitio Electrification Program (SEP).

“Ang rural electrification ay kailangan ipagpatuloy kasi hindi pa ito tapos. Kahit na almost 100 percent na ang inyong electrification sa inyong mga sitios,” Masongsong said. Citing Surseco I’s data, he added, there are only 2,000 households that remain unenergized within the cooperative’s franchise area.

“The rural electrification is not just about construction of lines reaching the last household in our franchise area; it’s about social and economic development in the countryside it’s about sustainable rural development through rural electrification,” the NEA chief stressed.

He further explained that the rural electrification plays an important role towards rural development as envisioned by President Rodrigo Duterte in realizing the Ambisyon Natin 2040, the government’s 25-year roadmap to end poverty in the country.

In 2016, Surseco I was able to energize 2,272 homes, bringing the total service connections of the cooperative to 74,747. Bislig City has the highest service connections, followed by Barobo, Hinatuan, Tagbina, and Lingig.

Among the highlights of Surseco I’s anniversary celebration were the blessing of the cooperative’s newly renovated substations in San Fernando and Tabon, and the establishment of an MCO Center, which Masongsong helped finance through his annual development allocation when he was 1-CARE party-list representative.

The San Fernando Substation underwent a rehabilitation of its feeder structure where a 69kV power circuit breaker was installed. The Tabon Substation on the other hand, has been uprated from the previous 5 MVA (megavolt amperes) to 10 MVA power transformer.

Surseco I is a triple A rated electric cooperative. At the NEA Lumens Awards held recently in Tagum City, the power distribution utility received the following awards and citations: AAA EC, Best Region, EC with Majority Female Board of Directors, and EC with Fully Liquidated Subsidy Fund for Rural Electrification.

NEA is audit complaint anew

11July 2017


After clarifying some issues pertaining to its 2015 financial statement, the Commission on Audit (COA) once again declared the National Electrification Administration (NEA) as compliant with government transparency standards.

The NEA was rendered an unqualified opinion for calendar years 2015 and 2016 based on the latest COA Independent Auditor’s Report (IAR). This enabled the agency to keep its reputable standing among state-owned corporations.

Administrator Edgardo Masongsong welcomed this development especially since the NEA espouse absolute honesty as one of its corporate values. “We appreciate this opinion by COA and rightly so because we are building on the best practices of the former administration,” he said.

“As we continue to advocate good public governance, trust that the NEA and the 121 electric cooperatives nationwide will remain assiduous in carrying out their collective mandate to stay on par with our state auditors’ expectations,” Masongsong added.

The agency tasked to implement total rural electrification in the Philippine failed to secure a clear audit finding last year after COA found a significant variance amounting to P12.110-billion in its 2015 financial statement.

The figure stemmed from the P20.247-billion balance of the NEA based on Bureau of Treasury (BTr) records minus the P8.137-billion year-end balance of account posted by the agency representing national government (NG) advances on its foreign loans between 1971 to 1989.

Upon further assessment, however, COA said the NEA already recorded the unbooked interest on NG advances amounting to P6.499-billion and reversed the entry made for the Foreign Currency Adjustment of Prior Years amounting to P3.500-billion.

“Further, BTr reversed in its books the amount of P2.111-billion representing maintenance of value risk. Accordingly, our present opinion on the 2015 financial statements is no longer qualified concerning this matter,” COA said in its IAR.

The report signed by OIC Supervising Auditor Glorina Suson last May 23 covered the transactions, accounts and operations of the NEA for 2016 to determine the level of assurance that may be placed on the management’s assertions on its financial performance.

Also considered was the propriety of the transactions as well as its adherence to the existing rules, regulations and policies of the organization, and the extent of the implementation of prior year’s audit recommendations. ###

Cong. Uybarreta Meets with NGCP and NAPOCOR for Updates on Power Restoration Efforts in the Eastern Visayas Region

  In his desire to expedite the restoration of electricity which will surely alleviate the plight of the  victims of the earthquake that struck the Eastern Visayas region, Representative Carlos Roman L. Uybarreta met with the officials of NGCP headed by Atty. Luis Manuel U. Bugayong, General Counsel of NGCP, this morning. Also present were Mr. Dennis Gan, Head, Operation and Maintenance Management; Ms. Marik Manrique, Head, Revenue and Regulatory Affairs; and Mr. Raul Galano, Head, Visayas Systems  Operations. NGCP discussed with Rep. Uybarreta their plan on how to restore power in the region.

  First is the need to fix the inverter of the High Voltage Direct Current (“HVDC”) in order for NGCP to tap into the Luzon power grid. NGCP reported that the HVDC sustained cracks and has oil leaks because of the earthquake. ABB, the manufacturer of the HVDC, already inspected and made repairs on the inverter and is awaiting recommendation from its Sweden office on what to do next. Worst case scenario is if there is a need to replace a major part then it will take a month for the unit to be energized.

  NGCP also confirmed that four (Transformer Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4) of their six transformers are not working. There is an on-going replacement of primary bushing on Transformer No. 6 and hopefully it will be energized for testing within the day, together with Transformer No. 5. Moreover, a 1x150 MVA transformer from Compostela SS and 1x100 MVA transformer from Cebu will be transferred to Ormoc SS. NGCP already started the disassembly of the said transformers last July 12, 2017. It will take 4 days for the disassembly, 8 days for the hauling, and 6 days for assembly and will be ready for commissioning on July 31, 2017.

  NGCP will also reconfigure the Compostela-Daanbantayan-Tabango-Ormoc 230kV line to be energized at 138 kV in order to supply power to Ormoc SS and possibly to the adjacent cities.

  Three power barges from TransAsia and another one from Salcon Power Corp. are also available for deployment to the region. Two will be deployed in Bohol and the other two in Leyte. It will take 4 days to tow the power barges from their present location while NGCP will need around 3-5 days to prepare the transmission lines that will connect the power barges to the grid.

  Rep. Uybarreta commended the NGCP with their work and joined them with their hope that electricity will be restored the soonest possible time for the people of the Eastern Visayas region.

  After the meeting with NGCP officials, Rep. Uybarreta also met with Atty. Melchor P. Ridulme, the general counsel of NAPOCOR to ask for their assistance in identifying possible mooring location of the power barges in Bohol and Leyte. NAPOCOR gave assurance to Rep. Uybarreta that they will extend any possible help in order to address the current problem in the Eastern Visayas region.

NEA activates PRRD task force in the wake of Leyte quake


09 July 2017

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has organized the Power Restoration Rapid Deployment (PRRD) task force to assist the quake struck electric cooperatives (ECs) in Visayas, Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said over the weekend.

Masongsong likewise stated the mechanism for a quick response fund is already being drafted in aid of power coops with ravaged facilities per the instruction of Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.

“The NEA has mobilized the PRRD task force to make sure that power is restored in the quake-hit towns of Leyte and its neighboring areas sooner rather than later. I am also constantly in touch with the general managers of all the concerned ECs to check on their progress,” he said.

Latest ground information from NEA Deputy Administrator Engr. Artis Nikki Tortola said all ECs in Eastern Visayas provinces and Bohol still experience blackout even though no significant damages have been reported in their distribution systems.

Thus far, they are awaiting energization from the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) and other providers such as the Energy Development Corporation (EDC) whose power plant in Ormoc, Leyte was shut down shortfly after the quake.

As of noon Saturday, NGCP said it has expedited the construction of a bypass line connecting its Tabango and Ormoc substations, which would carry power from Cebu to the affected islands of Leyte, Samar, Bohol and Biliran. It is expected to be completed by Monday.

Update from Leyte V Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Leyeco V) said its 5MVA Tambis substation in Tabango, which was originally intended to cater for just three municipalities, has been spread out to cover the towns of Calubi-an, Matag-ob, Kananga and soon Palompon.

Leyeco V general manager Engr. Juanito Jorda, Jr. thus advised all electricity consumers within their franchise area to conserve power amid a low voltage currently being experienced in the affected villages to avoid rotational brownout.

“Please minimize the use of electricity during day time and use only necessary lights and appliances at night time. Avoid using air conditioning units, freezers, rice cookers, electric irons and other energy-hungry appliances at this time,” Jorda said.

Meanwhile, the Department of Energy (DOE) also directed National Power Corporation (NPC) to run its diesel plant to augment electricity supply in Bohol. The NEA is closely monitoring its potential impact on the rates to ensure that customers would not be placed further at a disadvantage.

According to Bohol I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Boheco I) general manager Engr. Dino Nicolas Roxas, price variance is pegged at more or less P3 per kilowatt hour compared to their average rate at this point and it cannot address their total demand.

In his text message to the NEA chief, Roxas said Boheco I has a peak demand of 34 megawatts (MW). The NPC diesel power plant right now may generate only 16 MW and private distribution utility firm Bohol Light Company, Inc. also plans to utilize the same.

“Based on our conversation with the plant manager, they will share the available power to the utilities in Bohol. We can also run our hydro plants (around 7 MW capacity) if we have already feedback power coming from the diesel power plant,” Roxas assured nonetheless. ###
