Caraga power coop bags NEA support

Citing its compliance to the flagship programs of the National Electrification Administration (NEA), the Surigao del Sur II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Surseco II) has been guaranteed of its 10 percent subsidy funds and other incentives from the agency.

Administrator Edgardo Masongsong gave this assurance following his dialogue with Sureco II Board of Directors (BOD) and Management Staff at their main office in Tandag City, Surigao del Sur on Friday (June 2).

Masongsong said the electric cooperative (EC) has fully liquidated its cash advances for the Barangay Line Enhancement and Sitio Electrification Programs, making it eligible to fresh incentives from the NEA on top of government funding it receives regularly.

The administrator considered this a logical step especially since Surseco II had been addressing its capital expenditure (CapEx) needs through internally-generated funds amid the Energy Regulatory Commission’s (ERC) constant inattention to their applications.

“(Their) CapEx project application with ERC has not been acted ever since (and it is) the reason the EC’s system loss is at 12.97 percent, which is only three percentage points shy of the cap level,” Masongsong said on Monday (June 5).

The NEA chief advocated for a single-digit system loss for all ECs in accordance with President Rodrigo Duterte’s aim to reduce the price of electricity service in the country.

Meanwhile, Surseco II officials also took the opportunity to raise other issues and concerns with the administrator during the meeting including the adjustment of term limits for BOD members and their qualifications standards.

The energization of remaining sitios within its coverage area as well as projects under the Nationwide Intensification of Household Electrification (NIHE), which is initiated by the Department of Energy (DOE), were likewise discussed.

On Saturday (June 3), the administrator graced the 28th Annual General Membership Assembly (AGMA) of Surseco II as its guest speaker at the San Miguel Municipal Gymnasium, the main venue for the event.

A total of 4,390 member-consumers-owners (MCOs) gathered for the AGMA, which was also held in two other remote locations, the Surseco II headquarters in Tandag City and the Municipality of Madrid. The attendance is more than the seven percent of the 64,000-plus billed consumers of the said EC.

For this year, Surseco II adopted the theme “Strengthening the Electric Cooperative through MCO Empowerment,” an idea put forth by the National Center of Electric Cooperative Consumers, Inc. (NCECCO).

The organization of an NCECCO provincial chapter in Surigao del Sur and the subsequent induction of Surseco II MCOs into EC-led movement served as one of the highlights of the recently concluded AGMA.

Masongsong attributed the favorable outcome of the event to the Surseco II leadership with BOD president Reynaldo Sindo and general manager Iglorio Hinayon at the helm and the cooperation of their MCOs.

“The success of the AGMA could not have been realized without the all-out support of the MCOs as represented by the MSEAC (Multisectoral Electrification Advisory Council), BAPA (Barangay Power Associations), barangay electricians, IP (indigenous people) leaders and the local media” he said.

Surseco II has been rated AAA with 99 percent collection efficiency. It has consistently earned praise from NEA alongside other ECs in Caraga for its ability to bounce back from any adversity such as the 6.5-magnitude earthquake that hit the Surigao provinces last February.

NEA resolves Masbate power crisis in 24 hours

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) fixed the power blackout in Masbate within 24 hours shortly after taking over the management of the Masbate Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Maselco).

The NEA sorted out the problem after deploying a team led by Mr. Edmundo Aguilar whom Administrator Edgardo Masongsong designated to serve as project supervisor/acting general manager of Maselco.

Aguilar was tasked to oversee the operations and management of Maselco to ensure the efficient delivery of electric service to its member-consumers following the reported massive blackout on Wednesday (May 31).

This developed as soon as Masongsong placed Maselco general manager Eduardo Margallo under a 30-day preventive suspension over allegations of gross inefficiency and mismanagement of the cooperative.

The order is in response to the resolutions issued by the Masbate Sangguniang Panlalawigan and the Maselco Board vis-à-vis the demand letter of DMCI Masbate Power Corp. dated 24 May 2017, threatening to cut the power supply of Maselco for its failure to settle its overdue obligations.

Masongsong said the suspension is warranted to forestall any potential disruption of evidence, pending the outcome of the “motuproprio” investigation against Margallo.

“His continued stay in the office as the General Manager could definitely influence possible witnesses and/or pose threats to the safety and integrity of the records and other evidence, thus preventive suspension is necessary for the protection of the Cooperative, its operations and assets, pending the finality of this motuproprio investigation,” the order read.

“The National Electrification Administration has been vested with the power to impose disciplinary and preventive measures upon erring members of the board of directors of electric cooperatives, its officers and employees,” it added.

The order was served to Margallo on Thursday (June 1) and was received by his legal counsel, Atty. John Martin Sese.

Aguilar flew to Masbate  earlier today leading an NEA team to meet with Governor Antonio Kho and some government officials. They discussed together with the Maselco employees plans to settle the outstanding bills of the cooperative with DMCI. 

NEA welcomes appointment of Gonzales as new board member

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) has welcomed the appointment of Rene M. Gonzales as new member to the Board of Administrators.

NEA Administrator Edgardo R. Masongsong introduced Gonzales to the agency's officials and employees during Monday's flag-raising ceremony.

President Rodrigo R. Duterte appointed Gonzales as member of the NEA Board of Administrators, to serve the unexpired term of office ending on June 30, 2017, replacing Victor Chiong.

His appointment papers were signed last May 10.

A graduate of Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class of 1978, Gonzales has been in government service for more than 30 years.

In his brief remarks, the newly-appointed board member expressed his readiness to help NEA achieve its mission and accomplish its goals.

"I am here to help everybody, to help in the accomplishment of our mission. I am here to promote what is needed for us to achieve and most especially to be of assistance to everybody," Gonzales said.

Gonzales currently serves as Security Executive Director at CIRCA Security and Investigation, Inc. He also previously worked at Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) as Division Chief Intelligence.

He also served in the past as Department Manager for Intelligence and ID and Pass Control Department; and Assistant General Manager for Security and Emergency Services at the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA).

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.
