SURNECO team deserves credit for speedy power restoration in quake-hit areas—NEA

The Surigao del Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Surneco) deserves credit for making power available in the quake-hit areas at the soonest possible time after a magnitude 6.7 quake resulted in power outages in Surigao City and other municipalities in the province of Surigao del Norte.

This according to National Electrification Administration (NEA) Chief Edgardo Masongsong, who on Sunday lauded the officials and employees of Surneco "for heeding the call of duty even if they themselves were affected by the earthquake."

"This crisis displays the commitment of the electric cooperative to prioritize the interests of the Member-Consumer-Owners and lessen the impact of the calamity on their daily activity,” said the NEA chief. 

As of February 12, 2017, Surigao City and all four affected municipalities under the coverage area of Surneco are already energized. The four municipalities include San Francisco, Malimono, Sison, and Taganaan.

Administrator Masongsong said that as of February 13, power restoration is already at 97%. The rest of the restoration works, he stressed, will be concentrated on reconnecting lateral lines and power lines near the coastal areas.

Masongsong flew to Surigao on Sunday to make an ocular inspection of the main office of Surneco, which was heavily damaged in the earthquake.

The estimated cost of the damage to the coop’s headquarters is estimated at seven million pesos, while line network damage is estimated at 300,000 pesos.

“We want to assure our affected Member-Consumer-Owners that the NEA and Surneco are doing round-the-clock operations to be able to provide power to areas that are as yet unenergized," Masongsong said. 

"We will likewise continue to upgrade the prepositioning capacities of electric cooperatives nationwide to allow them to better respond to calamities and other emergency situations."

Task Force Kapatid Nina upbeat on power restoration

Time-tested Task Force Kapatid (TFK) remains upbeat on completing power restoration works for Nina-hit areas by early February as its ground personnel now totals 1,074. 

TFK-Nina includes contingents from the National Electrification Administration (NEA), 43 electric cooperatives (ECs), and 8 private distribution utilities deployed in the various coverage areas of the eight ECs that were hit the hardest by typhoon Nina. These eight ECs are Quezon I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (QUEZELCO I), Oriental Mindoro Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ORMECO), Marinduque Electric Cooperative, Inc. (MARELCO), Camarines Sur II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CASURECO II), Camarines III Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CASURECO III), Camarines IV Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CASURECO IV), Albay Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ALECO), and First Catanduanes Electric Cooperative, Inc. (FICELCO). 

As of January 26, 2017, TFK has already energized 1,548,863 households out of the total of 1,683,012, bringing power restoration level to 92.03%. Meanwhile, cities and municipalities under the franchise areas of the 16 affected ECs are now 100% electrified. 

NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said, “Task Force Kapatid will always be indispensable to our efforts to alleviate the plight of our electricity consumers who are often caught in the crosshairs of typhoons and other natural calamities. NEA and the electric cooperatives cannot be in a wait-and-see mode. We always have to be on our toes to ensure that after a calamity strikes, power is given to member-consumer-owners at the soonest possible time.” 

“NEA s continuously pursuing service innovations to demonstrate its commitment to uplift the lives of the rural Filipinos. We are one with President Rodrigo R. Duterte in his clarion call to uphold the welfare of the people, especially the poorest of the poor,” Administrator Masongsong added. 

All volunteers of TFK-Nina are expected to be pulled out by the end of January, except for Sorsogon I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (SORECO I), Sorsogon II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (SORECO II), Central Pangasinan Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CENPELCO), Pangasinan I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (PANELCO I),  Pangasinan II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (PANELCO II), and Ilocos Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ISECO), all of which have committed to extend their deployment in the hard-hit areas of FICELCO. 

SORECO I and II will be deployed for another week, while CENPELCO, PANELCO I and II, and ISECO have decided to stay for two weeks. 

Similarly, the teams of the Aurora Electric Cooperative, Inc. (AURELCO), Nueva Ecija II Electric Cooperative, Inc.-Area I (NEECO II – Area I), Nueva Ecija II Electric Cooperative, Inc.-Area II (NEECO II – Area II), Peninsula Electric Cooperative, Inc. (PENELCO), First Laguna Electric Cooperative, Inc. (FLECO), and Aklan Electric Cooperative, Inc. (AKELCO) have decided to assist in power restoration activities of ALECO until February 7. 

Meanwhile, Administrator Masongsong said that an EC Comprehensive Disaster Risk Reduction Management Plan (EC-CDRRMP) is also being finalized by the NEA following a directive from Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi to come up with disaster protocols that will lessen the impact of damages to electric infrastructures and accelerate power restoration in calamity-hit areas. 

Specifically, the EC-CDRRMP intends to operationalize medium and long-term strategies in ensuring the stability and resiliency of EC distribution system facilities in times of calamities through the conduct of Vulnerability Risk Assessment (VRA) and the development of Emergency Restoration Planning (ERP). 

According to the Administrator, “The VRA is geared towards the identification of critical assets and instituting immediate and long-term solution towards a more resilient distribution system, while the ERP is used in ensuring that the operation of the cooperative is maintained under calamity condition and the establishment of different protocols of actions in order to hasten the restoration of the system of the affected EC.” 

“These standard operating procedures will be our basis on how to respond to emergency  situations and effective carry out post-disaster action, review, and as such, will cover every aspect of emergency planning from the establishment of control and mitigation measures, to the setting up of communication protocols, and the guaranteeing of stocking and material availability,” he said. 

He added that policy are also being studied to further streamline the processing of calamity loans for availing ECs. Calamity loans offered by NEA are normally processed within six days, and bear 3.25% interest per annum, with a repayment period of 10 years but not exceeding the remaining franchise life of the EC. 

As of January 25, NEA has already extended Php100.678 million in calamity loans to three Nina-affected ECs, namely FICELCO (Php26.580 million), CASURECO I (Php11.805 million), and CASURECO IV (Php62.294 million). 

In process as well are calamity loans for MARELCO (Php14 million), CASURECO II (Php24.239 million), and CASURECO III (Php10 million), totaling Php48.239 million. 

These ECs are given a maximum grace period of one year to settle their loan obligations, while the amount of loan to be extended depends on the evaluated cost of the rehabilitation and restoration project and the availability of the funds of the NEA.

NEA vows to intensify electrification of rural communities, empowerment of electric coops

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has crafted plans anew to intensify the Rural Electrification (RE) Program and capacitate its partner electric cooperatives (ECs) following NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong’s vow for a more strengthened partnership between the Agency and the ECs. 

In the NEA 2017 Strategic Thinking Conference-Workshop held on December 26-28, 2016 at the NEA Building, Diliman, Quezon City, Administrator Masongsong batted for multi-pronged initiatives that will not only accelerate the energization of unlit areas in the country, but will also make the services of the Agency more responsive to the needs of the ECs and the electricity consumers. 

“Under my leadership, I want the NEA to be more consumer-focused. We will work together with the electric cooperatives in rolling out programs that fully tap the potential  of rural electrification to enhance people’s productivity and make them active partners in building sustainable rural communities,” Administrator Masongsong said. 

The Administrator added, “Definitely, we will have to fast-track the implementation of the Sitio Electrification Program and the Barangay Line Enhancement Program to be able to introduce empowerment programs for our member-owner-consumers. Without electricity in the remote areas, it will be difficult for us to push programs that can complement the productivity skills of our rural folks.”

 Electrification programs 

The Sitio Electrification Program (SEP) and the Barangay Line Enhancement Program (BLEP) are interrelated electrification projects of the NEA started in 2010. 

For 2017, the Agency has committed 2,140 sitios for energization with a total evaluated project cost of Php1.8 billion. This covers 825 programmed sitios in Luzon, 878 in Visayas, and 707 in Mindanao. 

Meanwhile NEA is also targeting to complete a total of 104 BLEP projects nationwide, of which seven are submarine cable installations and six are tapping point upgrading. 48 of the total BLEP projects are programmed for Mindanao, while 42 and 14 are expected to be accomplished in Visayas and Luzon, respectively. 

Funding for these projects is sourced from 2013, 2014, and 2015 BLEP subsidies and the 2013 PAMANA development fund. 

New vision statement 

During the Strategic Thinking Conference-Workshop, the assembly has likewise moved to formulate a new vision statement that will significantly align the direction of the Agency to the salient provisions of EPIRA. 

The new vision statement of the NEA reads: “A dynamic and responsive NEA that is a vanguard of sustainable rural development in partnership with globally-competitive Electric Cooperatives and empowered Electricity Consumers.” 

Administrator Masongsong said “the vision will serve as NEA’s pledge to perform better in exercising its mandate of totally electrifying he countryside and in putting to fore the interest of the member-owner-consumers, which remains a primary concern for President Rodrigo R. Duterte and Secretary Alfonso G Cusi. Their espousal of a pro-people government is a clear proof that changes, indeed, has come.” 

The Administrator added, “I hope that during my tenure as your NEA Administrator, and with the help of the general constituency of the institution, the aggregate of the employees and officers of the ECs, the support of industry stakeholders, and the involvement of electric consumers, members and leaders alike, all over the country, the NEA will be able to achieve meaningful and emphatic changes for rural progress and development that are inclusive and sustained in the generations to come.”

NEA extends Php2.43B loans to power coops

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has extended Php2.434 billion loans to 56 electric cooperatives (ECs) in 2016 to finance their rural electrification projects through its various loan windows, exceeding the agency’s target of Php1.7B. 

This amount includes the Php603 million calamity loans availed of by 15 ECs for the rehabilitation of their distribution lines due to typhoons Lawin, Ferdie, Karen, Yolanda, Lando, and Nona. These ECs include Abreco, Beneco, Kaelco, Batanelco, Cagelco I, Aurelco, Omeco, Romelco, Ormeco, Lubelco, Maselco, Soreco I and II, Norsamelco and Bileco. 

Provision of reliable and efficient electricity service to electricity consumers in the grassroots level is of the priority thrusts of the Administration of President Rodrigo Duterte. Hence, to pursue this end, the Department of Energy (DOE) through the auspices of the NEA, continues to innovate and formulate strategic and more responsive measures that will aggressively address their urgent needs. 

The onslaught of Typhoon Lawin in Northern Luzon in October 2016 strengthened the DOE-NEA-ECs triumvirate when massive efforts for power restoration and rehabilitation works were done in the areas covered by Abreco, Beneco, Aurelco, Cagelco I & II, Kaelco, among others. 

Energy Secretary and NEA Board Chair Alfonso G. Cusi said, “Our priority is to ensure that people in the typhoon-affected areas be served with electricity on schedule. The DOE, in coordination with NEA, has organized and mobilized personnel to rehabilitate distribution lines and fast track power restoration through the Task Force Kapatid (TFK) operations to work double-time, especially in hard-hit areas”. 

Aside from the mobilization of the institutionalized-Task Force Kapatid (TFK), NEA extended calamity loans to the Lawin-devastated ECs amounting to some Php119M in order to accelerate their recovery and subsequently effect immediate electricity service to member-consumer-owners. 

Administrator Edgardo R. Masongsong said, “NEA always pursues the causes of the ECs as well as its member-consumer-owners (MCOs). The Agency is constantly innovating and has been re-aligning its programs with the present administration’s policy directions to better address the needs and protect the welfare and rights of the consumers, much more the poorest of poor.” 

“The NEA officials and employees feel the needs of the rural folks. We are committed to give them fair chances for a more comfortable life through provision of fast and better service. Our fervent prayer is that the National Government continues to recognize the significance of NEA and the Rural Electrification (RE) Program in the upliftment of the socio-economic condition of the people in rural communities,” he added.

Calamity loans are offered by NEA is normally processed within six days with 3.25% interest per annum, and a repayment period of 10 years but not to exceed the remaining franchise life of the EC. ECs which will avail of the loan service are given a grace period of maximum of one year. The amount of loan will depend on the evaluated cost of the rehabilitation and restoration project and subject to the availability of funds.
