NEA engages Daneco breakaway group in dialogue


20 June 2018


The National Electrification Administration (NEA) held a dialogue with members of the group that splintered from the Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Daneco) amid their continuing defiance of court rulings in favor of the NEA-backed Daneco.

Atty. Goldelio Rivera, the NEA Deputy Administrator for Legal Services, led agency officials in meeting with the Daneco faction headed by its representative Noel Quidilla after their brief demonstration outside the agency’s office in Diliman, Quezon City on Wednesday.

The group was associated with the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) whose registration currently hangs in the balance as it was deemed illegal in view of several court resolutions that were issued vis-a-vis the Daneco controversy.

Be that as it may, the NEA officials listened to what the Daneco breakaway group had to say, including their requests for the removal of the lawfully-recognized organization put in place by NEA in 2012, the recognition of their registration at the CDA as a stock cooperative, and permission to regain control of the management and operations of the distribution utility in Davao del Norte.

In response, Rivera and his fellow deputy administrators said they would relay their message to NEA chief Edgardo Masongsong. They also committed to look into the group’s other claims, such as the issuance of two electric bills that have been causing confusion among the power consumers.   

At present, only the legitimate Daneco organization backed by NEA has been recognized by financial institutions like banks and government instrumentalities like the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).

The judiciary had earlier ruled with finality on the issue with the Supreme Court affirming the Court of Appeals’ decision stating that the actions of the Daneco splinter goup were void from the beginning and that subsequent moves by the same––such as the holding of a referendum––were likewise null and void.


On hand during the dialogue were NEA Deputy Administrators Sonia San Diego (Electric Cooperatives Management Services), Atty. Rossan Rosero-Lee (Special Concerns), Atty. Vicar Loureen Lofranco (Corporate Resources and Financial Services) and Director Nollie Alamillio (Instutional Development Department).

Masongsong was not around to face the group as he was out attending a business meeting. In a statement, however, he assured all concerned parties that the rule of law shall apply with respect to the issue.

"Let me assure all the parties to this long-running feud that all measures being taken by the NEA is in accordance with its mandate and the rule of law, with the end in view of finally removing the member-consumer-owners in Davao del Norte and Compostella Valley in the cross-fire. We are cognizant that they are the ones most affected by this,” he said. NEA

NEA urges CDA to nullify registration of Daneco splinter group


20 June 2018


The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has reiterated its call on the Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) to formally grant its petition to cancel the certificate of registration that was unlawfully issued to the splinter group of Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Daneco) to aid efforts to resolve and end the ongoing intramurals between the legally-recognized Daneco group working with the NEA and the illegitimate Daneco splinter group using its CDA registration as a shield against legal action.

According to NEA Deputy Administrator for Special Concerns Rossan Rosero-Lee, “this appears to be the only productive way forward at this point to avoid derailing the progress made by the legitimate stakeholders of Daneco amid the ongoing rehabilitation of their electric cooperative (EC) under the reconstituted management of the NEA-backed Task Force Duterte Northern Davao Power (TFD-NDP).” 

“The more the illegitimate faction of Daneco drags this out, the worse it will be for the electricity consumers of Davao del Norte. They have been at this since 2012, and have no excuse to continue this senseless exercise because the courts have spoken,” explained Rosero-Lee.

The NEA official issued this statement in response to recent protests organized by desperate member-consumer-owners (MCOs) of the illegitimate Daneco faction who are in Manila in a bid to keep the illegal nature of their registration from officials of the CDA. The sacked Daneco officials had earlier made efforts to circumvent rulings by the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court, that have held that the breakaway group’s signing up with CDA after hastily conducting a referendum and subsequent board elections were “null and void.”

The Daneco splinter group is composed of officials that had been dismissed––as a result of a NEA Administrative Committee ruling in 2012––on charges of grave misconduct and gross neglect of duty after entering into highly questionable and anomalous contracts.  

Rosero-Lee emphasized that “the NEA has nothing against ECs that choose to enlist as a stock cooperative under CDA or stock corporation under the Securities and Exchange Commission as long as they went through legitimate and proper procedures.”

“Regardless of their affiliation, all power co-ops now fall under the supervision of the electrification agency by virtue of Republic Act 10531 or the NEA Reform Act of 2013,” added Rosero-Lee.

She said, however, that the breakway unit of Daneco continues to refuse to obey this law by continuing its illegal operations, which includes the collection of payments from its uninformed MCOs despite its absence of business permits from local authorities and recognition from power suppliers.   

According to Atty. Jeorge Rapista, legal counsel of Daneco, Inc., the illegal collection of the illegitimate Daneco faction is estimated 700 million pesos and this remains largely unaudited and unaccounted for, prompting the NEA to exert more efforts to address this issue.  

Both Rosero-Lee and Rapista stressed that it is incumbent upon the CDA to do its part and refrain from further exacerbating the conflict by revoking outright the certificate of registration of the illegitimate Daneco group.  

Meanwhile, the TFD-NDP has intensified its operations against people who are unduly capitalizing on the situation by putting up stringent measures that would bring electricity consumers back to the fold of Daneco, Inc.   

On May 30, NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong through Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi wrote a six-page letter to President Rodrigo Duterte to shed light on the Daneco controversy.   

“It is the arduous desire of the NEA in compliance to its mandate of ensuring the operational viability of electric cooperatives, including Daneco, that the Supreme Court decision affirming the ruling of the Court of Appeals be implemented and put an end to the confusion sowed by the Daneco-CDA group,” said Masongsong.   

“It is only then that the full rehabilitation of Daneco will be achieved and its MCOs enjoy the benefits of a stable and reliable supply distribution utility service, which they deserve and which this administration aspires for,” the administrator added. NEA

NEA cited for compliance to '8888' hotline system



20 June 2018

State-run National Electrification Administration (NEA) has been cited by the Office of the Cabinet Secretary (OCS) for its compliance with collaboration requirements for the implementation and operation of the 8888 Citizens' Complaint Hotline.

Administrator Edgardo Masongsong received the Certificate of Collaboration from Undersecretary Dale Cabrera of the OCS-Strategic Action and Response Office (STAR) in a simple ceremony held Tuesday (June 19) at the NEA building in Quezon City.

"This is to formalize our engagement. We hope to have a good cooperation under the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte," Undersecretary Cabrera said. 

The OCS-STAR recognized the NEA for its designation of focal and technical persons, attendance in the orientation and simulation seminars, and enrollment of the agency's online account with the 8888 hotline system. 

"We are elated by this recognition. This is a testament, not only to the NEA's adherence to the President's order to act with dispatch on public complaints but to the agency's culture of service which primarily puts the concerns of member-consumer-owners at the topmost of institutional priorities," Masongsong said.

On October 14, 2016, President Rodrigo Duterte signed Executive Order No. 6 institutionalizing the 8888 Citizens' Hotline and Complaint Center under the direction and supervision of the Office of the Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr.

This serves as “a mechanism where citizens may report their complaints and grievances on acts of red tape, as defined under Republic Act No. 9485 and other relevant laws, and/or corruption of any national government agency, government-owned or –controlled corporation (GOCC), government financial institution (GFI), and other instrumentalities of the government."

The complaint center operates 24/7 excluding national holidays and work suspensions. NEA

NEA BIT Phase 3 implementation launched


5 June 2018

State-run National Electrification Administration (NEA) on Monday rolled out the third phase of the implementation of the NEA Business Intelligence Technology (BIT) system, signaling the completion of the project.

Speaking at the NEA BIT Phase 3 Go Live Program held at H.E.S. Auditorium, NEA Building in Quezon City, Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said the project was designed to address the current situation and progress towards strategies to assist the 121 electric cooperatives (ECs) in rural electrification.

"We celebrate that all FITP Modules are now implemented: the NEA BIT is complete for the Finance, Institutional, and Technical and Project Monitoring Modules -- paving the way to the new NEA wherein information derived from reports infused into the NEA are maximized to support our 7-point agenda," he said.

Masongsong said the information generated from the web portal would assist the NEA in gaining timely and holistic analysis on the EC's current state and business operational performance. 

"It is our tool in fulfilling our mandated mission under Republic Act 10531," the NEA chief said.

The NEA BIT Phase 3 covered Finance, Data Entry Templates (DETs) designed for generation to cater the data requirements of not only the NEA, but also for the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM). 

"The DETs submitted by the ECs via the NEA BIT are the official EC data submission and used as a single source of truth specially on critical data elements," Masongsong said. 

"At the NEA, we need to challenge the data to truly reach the maximum potential of NEA BIT. This means deriving from the meaningful reports and analytics generated by the system to be able to provide strategic interventions to the electric cooperatives," the administrator added.

Launched on August 14, 2017, Phase 1 of the NEA BIT focused on the institutional and project monitoring reports specifically the overall energization status, the Sitio Electrification (SEP) and the Barangay Line Enhancement Programs (BLEP). 

The NEA BIT Phase 2, meanwhile, covered the technical and rates, allowing the electrification agency to gain deeper insights on EC submitted data on energy utilization, system loss and sales from the information that has been generated.

"With the use of this technology, we are given the avenue for the provision of timely interventions and to act decidedly, with dynamism and efficiency, towards the realization of our core services for our partner electric cooperatives," Masongsong said. 

Funded by the World Bank with technical assistance from IT firm Indra, the NEA BIT was a result of the collaboration between the NEA and the ECs through discovery and design sessions back in 2015. A series of workshops had been undertaken on the use of the NEA BIT specifically on the DET for the preparation and submission of reports. NEA
