DASURECO rec­og­nizes women of the rural elec­tri­fi­ca­tion

DASURECO Employ­ees and the work immer­sion stu­dents with the guest speak­ers from Talikala Foun­da­tion, Inc.

The Davao del Sur Elec­tric Coop­er­a­tive, Inc. joins the nation in rec­og­niz­ing this year’s Women’s Month with a theme, “We make change work for women” on March 8, 2018.

A thor­ough under­stand­ing of sex traf­fick­ing and pros­ti­tu­tion through a doc­u­men­tary enti­tled “Bibili ka ba?”

A film enti­tled “Bibili ka ba?” which doc­u­ments the plight of pros­ti­tuted and traf­ficked women was shown to the Coop employ­ees and work immer­sion stu­dents from the Holy Cross of Digos, Inc.

To make the event suc­cess­ful, DASURECO tapped the Talikala Foun­da­tion, Inc. –a non­govern­ment orga­ni­za­tion run by women for women in Davao City. This foun­da­tion offers sup­port, train­ings, and coun­sel­ing to women and chil­dren who have been forced into sex traf­fick­ing and prostitution.

Ms. Carina Sajo­nia from the Talikala Foun­da­tion, Inc. dis­cusses the cre­ation and pur­pose of the said organization

Lory, a pros­ti­tuted woman, shared her strug­gles and feats in bat­tling with the hor­rors of her past. Her tes­ti­mony served as an avenue to bet­ter under­stand why such prob­lem still exists amid many ways to pre­vent such. This also widened one’s per­cep­tion of a per­son who per­se­vered to rise amid dis­crim­i­na­tion and neglect.

After which, a forum was facil­i­tated by Ms. Carina Sajo­nia from the Talikala Foun­da­tion, Inc. which invited ques­tions espe­cially from the students.

ASEP to pilot in two far-​flung sitios in Davao Occi­den­tal

The Euro­pean Union (EU) con­tin­u­ally extends its aid to the coun­try through the Access to Sus­tain­able Energy Pro­gramme (ASEP), an under­tak­ing between the EU and the Depart­ment of Energy (DOE).

Some­time in Novem­ber 2017, the ASEP Team led by Ms. Lau­rie B. Navarro-​ASEP Tech­ni­cal Assis­tance National Expert and Ms. Ali­cia de Guz­man – OIC for DOEEPIMB (Elec­tric Power Indus­try Man­age­ment Bureau) appeared before the DASURECO man­age­ment and offi­cers to dis­cuss the oppor­tu­ni­ties of the pro­gram espe­cially on the con­duct of the project fea­si­bil­ity stud­ies and site inspection.

The pilot project sites in Sitio New Mabuhay in Barangay Lit­tle Baguio, Malita, Davao Occi­den­tal and Sitio Mahayag in Barangay Balun­taya, Don Marcelino, Davao Occi­den­tal were con­sid­ered ideal after months of data gath­er­ing, base­line sur­vey, and focus group dis­cus­sions with the EU, DOE, ASEP Team, NEA, EC, LGUs in the community.

Ms. Lau­rie B. Navarro-​ASEP Tech­ni­cal Assis­tance National Expert dis­cussed before the
DASURECO man­age­ment and offi­cers the oper­a­tional set-​up of the project

On Feb­ru­ary 27, 2018, the ASEP group together with Dr. Ernie Ter­rado – ASEP Key Expert, Mr. Sam Andrews — speaker for the tech­ni­cal and finan­cial impact of the projects, DOE rep­re­sen­ta­tives led by Ms. Ali­cia de Guz­man, and Ms. Lau­rie B. Navarro-​ASEP Tech­ni­cal Assis­tance National Expert dis­cussed before the DASURECO man­age­ment and offi­cers headed by Engr. God­ofredo N. Guya – the Gen­eral Man­ager and Mr. Rodrigo B. Sace­dor – the Board Pres­i­dent respec­tively the pro­duc­tive uses of renew­able energy tech­nolo­gies in the cho­sen sitios and the roles and respon­si­bil­i­ties of each agency/​office in the imple­men­ta­tion of the projects.

Dr. Ernie Ter­rado explains the impor­tance of the project granted by the Euro­pean Union (EU)

“The EC is the key in the suc­cess of these pilot projects…” said Dr. Terrado.

on the abaca and corn crop processing

The oppor­tu­nity for another means of com­mu­nity devel­op­ment was accepted by DASURECO as it not only gives light to the com­mu­nity but also pro­vides them income aug­men­ta­tion through a highly advanced method of abaca and corn crop pro­cess­ing in Sitio New Mabuhay and Sitio Mahayag respectively.

Also present were Mr. Richard Flores-​NEA rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Mr. Ally P. Fer­nan­dez – rep­re­sen­ta­tive from LGU-​Don Marcelino, Mr. Fer­di­nand D. San – Barangay Cap­tain of Lit­tle Baguio, Malita, Mr. Amador D. Cano – Barangay Cap­tain of Balun­taya, Don Marcelino, and the Barangay Coun­cilors of each barangay unit.

With EU’s grant, the Philip­pine Government’s aim of total elec­tri­fi­ca­tion for so long will grad­u­ally be met by means of renew­able energy whilst pro­mot­ing energy efficiency.

ERC hears appli­ca­tion for power sales agree­ment between DASURECO, Inc. and Mapalad Part­ners, Inc.

A pub­lic hear­ing in the mat­ter of the appli­ca­tion for approval of the power sales agree­ment (PSA) between DASURECO, Inc. and Mapalad Part­ners Inc. (MPI), with prayer for pro­vi­sional author­ity was par­tic­i­pated and attended by var­i­ous MCO sec­tors on Jan­u­ary 30, 2018 at the DASURECO Cen­ter for Member-​Consumer-​Owners, Barangay Cogon, Digos City, Davao del Sur.

Atty. Rhett Roswell F. Mis­lang, the ERC hear­ing officer

The said appli­ca­tion wit­nessed by Engr. Jerry D. Morastil and Engr. Theresa Luzano from DASURECO and Mr. Joseph C. Nocos from MPI was heard by Atty. Rhett Roswell F. Mis­lang from the Energy Reg­u­la­tory Commission.

MPI has sup­plied 15 megawatts of diesel-​fuel gen­er­a­tor set to DASURECO under the power sales agree­ment on Octo­ber 16, 2013 how­ever the peak­ing demand for elec­tric­ity neces­si­tates the elec­tric dis­tri­b­u­tion util­ity to pro­cure for addi­tional power sup­ply, which would also result in a down­ward adjust­ment of over 10 cen­tavos per kilowatt-​hour in DASURECO’s total gen­er­a­tion cost.
