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.
Bilang ng EC na nabigyan ng triple ‘A’ rating ng NEA, tumaas noong 2016
Nadagdagan ang bilang ng mga electric cooperative (EC) sa buong bansa na nakatanggap ng “AAA” rating mula sa National Electrification Administration (NEA) noong nakaraang taon.
Batay sa isinagawang pangkalahatang pagsusuri sa naging serbisyo ng mga kooperatiba ng kuryente sa ilalim ng superbisyon ng NEA para sa taong 2016, umakyat sa 77 ang mga kooperatiba na nabigyan ng AAA rating mula sa 70 lamang noong 2015.
Ang ‘AAA’ rating ay ang pinakamataas na grado na maaaring ibigay ng NEA sa kooperatiba. Ito ay nangangahulugan na ang kooperatiba ay sumusunod sa mga itinakdang pamantayan ng ahensiya, gaya ng pagpapahusay sa kanilang mga operasyong pinansyal, institusyonal, teknikal at wastong pag-uulat ng mga ito.

(Siarelco), Dinagat Island Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Dielco), Surigao del Sur I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Surseco I), at Surigao del Sur II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Surseco II).
Napanatili naman ng 69 EC ang kanilang AAA rating. Walong kooperatiba ang nagawang mapataas sa AAA ang rating nito mula sa dating AA, A or B. Kabilang dito ang Pangasinan I Electric Cooperative (Panelco I), Benguet Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Beneco), First Laguna Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Fleco), Romblon Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Romelco), Camarines Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Canoreco), Central Negros Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Ceneco), Negros Occidental Electric Cooperative (Noceco), at Davao Oriental Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Doreco).
Samantala, sampung kooperatiba ang nakakuha ng AA na rating; sampung kooperatiba ng A rating; anim na kooperatiba ng B rating; pitong kooperatiba ng C rating; at 11 kooperatiba ng D rating.
Sa Size Classification ng EC, ang bilang ng Mega Large ay umakyat sa 60 mula sa dating 58. Dalawang Extra Large EC ang umakyat sa Mega Large; isa mula Large na naging Extra Large; isa mula sa Medium na naging Large; at isa mula sa Small na naging Medium. Apat na EC ang napabilang sa Medium at apat sa Small.
Ikanatuwa ng tagapamahala ng NEA na si Edgardo Masongsong ang naging resulta ng nasabing pagsusuri sa 121 electric cooperative na pinangangasiwaan ng ahensiya.
Sa inilabas na memorandum nito, pinuri ni Masongsong ang mga kooperatiba na nagkamit ng AAA rating at hinikayat na patuloy na maghanap ng mga paraan para mapababa ang singil sa kuryente sa kanilang mga sinasakupan.
Ang resulta ng isinagawang pagsusuri sa mga kooperatiba ng kuryente ay magiging basehan sa pagtaas o pagbaba ng per item o allowance na matatanggap ng mga opisyal at empleyado nito epektibo simula Abril 1.
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.
Southern Leyte coop pledges support to new NEA policy thrusts
National Electrification Administration (NEA) chief Edgardo Masongsong conferred with the management staff of the Southern Leyte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Soleco) during his visit to its headquarters Thursday (March 30) in Maasin City, Southern Leyte.
Masongsong met with its Board of Directors led by its current president, Atty. Marian Donayre-Pelin, Directors Rosello Gerong and Porferio Bantugan, General Manager Jonathan Empeño and NEA representative Antonio Catre to encourage the Soleco management to implement programs in line with new policy initiatives of the agency, particularly that on the Competitive Selection Process on Power Supply Agreements.
"These initiatives are aimed at realizing President Duterte's call for fair and transparent procedures in the energy sector, without denigrating the development goals of rural electrification," Masongsong said.
Soleco powers 19 towns in Southern Leyte and has consistently received AAA rating from the agency for four consecutive years among the electric cooperatives in Eastern Visayas.
Shortly after, Masongsong went to the provincial capitol to speak with Governor Damian Mercado who sought the assistance of the national government through the NEA for the installation of a submarine cable from the mainland to Limasawa Island.
The governor hopes to obtain the equipment in time for the 500th anniversary of the historic first Catholic Mass in the country on March 31, 2021, which is expected to draw tourists. Mercado said he is looking forward to the arrival of a cruise ship from Europe to join the commemoration.
The construction of ports in the island municipality and the airport in Maasin City courtesy of the Department of Tourism and Department of Transportation is also reportedly being fast tracked in light of the event.
The provincial government saw that power supply is crucial to its ongoing preparations hence connecting the island to the grid was deemed necessary. Moreover, such developments aim to jumpstart the local economy, not only in Southern Leyte but in the provinces of Leyte and Bohol, to as far as the northeastern localities of Mindanao.
