Over 102,000 life­line con­sumers free of elec­tric­ity

Davao del Sur Elec­tric Coop­er­a­tive, Inc. (DASURECO) heeds the call of the Philip­pine Rural Elec­tric Coop­er­a­tives Asso­ci­a­tion, Inc. (PHILRECA) and the National Asso­ci­a­tion of Gen­eral Man­agers of Elec­tric Coop­er­a­tives, Inc. (NAG­MEC) to pro­vide sub­sidy to mar­gin­al­ized elec­tric­ity con­sumers fol­low­ing the government’s strict imple­men­ta­tion of the enhanced com­mu­nity quar­an­tine (ECQ).

The pro­gram which tar­gets life­line con­sumers in the coun­try whose income and liveli­hood was affected by the pan­demic is dubbed as ‘Pantawid Liwanag’. It is a cor­po­rate social respon­si­bil­ity pro­gram of the elec­tric coop­er­a­tives, under the umbrella of PHILRECA, in response to the government’s effort to curb the impact of the pan­demic through Repub­lic Act No. 11469 or the “Bayani­han to Heal as One Act”.

In sup­port to this call, DASURECO’s Board of Direc­tors headed by Direc­tor Rodrigo B. Sace­dor together with the man­age­ment endeav­ored to free its life­line res­i­den­tial con­sumers con­sum­ing 30 kilowatt-​hours and below of up to two (2) months billing period, March and April 2020. A total of 53,564 life­line res­i­den­tial con­sumers were given sub­sidy for March billing period and 49,116 on April. DASURECO was able to allo­cate almost 8 mil­lion pesos to 102,680 life­line res­i­den­tial con­sumers with over 1.3 mil­lion kilo­watts used within two months.

The sub­sidy fund for the ‘Pantawid Liwanag’ pro­gram was sourced out from the allo­cated bud­get for insti­tu­tional activ­i­ties like the Annual Gen­eral Mem­ber­ship Assem­bly (AGMA), dis­trict con­ven­tions, and oth­ers which were can­celled due to COVID-​19 outbreak.

As of this writ­ing, DASURECO has not imple­mented dis­con­nec­tion since March to alle­vi­ate the con­sumers’ plight amid this pandemic. ###

DASURECO moves for line clear­ing down­load­ing

Area Ser­vices Depart­ment Man­ager Engr. Jerry D. Morastil takes the lead in the imple­men­ta­tion of line clear­ing to the NCECCO-​barangay chap­ters of Kiblawan District

The Davao del Sur Elec­tric Coop­er­a­tive, Inc. (DASURECO) is deter­mined to down­load line clear­ing works to its orga­nized NCECCO barangays with Kiblawan Dis­trict as the pilot area.

DASURECO Area Ser­vices Man­ager Engr. Jerry D. Morastil spear­headed the con­duct of the NCECCO Line Clear­ing Train­ers’ Train­ing to 31 barangay chair­men of NCECCO or National Cen­ter of Elec­tric Coop­er­a­tive Con­sumers, Inc. in Kiblawan dis­trict on May 13, 2020 at its Barangay Pobla­cion Gymnasium.

Acknowl­edg­ing the con­stant prob­lem in our power dis­tri­b­u­tion lines due to veg­e­ta­tion, DASURECO sees it apt to part­ner with NCEC­COs and have them part of the ECs man­power. Engr. Morastil dis­cussed the process flow, stan­dards, and legal basis of imple­men­ta­tion of the line clear­ing scheme, includ­ing the rates they are expected to receive in doing the job.

“Ihatag sa inyo ang katung­danan sa pag-​implementar sa line clear­ing. You are now part of the move­ment of the elec­tric coop­er­a­tive… the move­ment of the NCECCO.”OIC GM Fer­di­nand D. Canas­tra said.

The down­load­ing of line clear­ing to the barangay level is con­sid­ered an effec­tive way to lessen sys­tem loss and pre­vent inter­rupted sup­ply of power to the end-​users. On August 8, 2019, Pres­i­dent Rodrigo Duterte signed into law the Repub­lic Act 11361 or the Anti-​Obstruction of Power Lines Act which ensures unin­ter­rupted sup­ply of power and pro­tects the power lines by pro­hibit­ing the plant­ing of tall trees, con­struc­tion of haz­ardous improve­ments, and con­duct of haz­ardous activ­i­ties within the power line corridor.

NCECCO National Chair­man and DASURECO Board Pres­i­dent Rodrigo B. Sace­dor empha­sized the vital con­tri­bu­tion of the move­ment towards the suc­cess of the elec­tric cooperative’s pro­grams besides hav­ing a sus­tain­able income aug­men­ta­tion for the orga­nized barangay chapters.

Mobi­liz­ing our NCECCO chap­ters is the third phase of the Empower-​Organize-​Mobilize (EOM) strat­egy under the Member-​Consumer-​Owners Pro­gram for Empow­er­ment (MCOPE) which was authored by NEA Admin­is­tra­tor Edgardo R. Masongsong.

DASURECO has mobi­lized four (4) dis­tricts under Col­lec­tion Down­load­ing scheme pilot­ing in Matanao, Magsaysay, Sulop, and Sta. Maria.###
