PRESS RELEASE DASURECO continues its massive line clearing activities through the joint effort of the Technical Services Department (TSD) and Area Services Department (ASD) to prevent power outages and improve power reliability in our distribution service. DASURECO targets to clear 4,350 kilometers of line for the year 2024, prioritizing vegetated areas and those affected by growing trees. This initiative is also in line with Republic Act 11361 or otherwise known as the “Anti-Obstruction of Power Lines Act”, which ensures that conveyance of electricity through power distribution systems, such as in DASURECO, will be uninterrupted. On the other hand, DASURECO reminds its consumers to seek assistance or wear personal protective equipment when trimming or cutting tall growing trees near our power distribution line to prevent danger or loss of life.    Other than planting of tall growing plants, it is prohibited by the law to conduct or perform any hazardous activities within the power line corridor; construct or erect any hazardous improvements within the power line corridor; and prevent or refuse entry of any personnel from the distribution and transmission company to conduct line maintenance and operational services. Penalties of fine ranging from P50,000.00 to P2000,000.00 and/or imprisonment of up to 12 years shall be dealt with by those who violate the law.    Thus, DASURECO urge its consumers to aid in preventing power outages by ensuring that our power distribution lines be free from any obstruction. Land owners are also reminded to abide with the law should there be trees to be cut to ensure the continuous and uninterrupted distribution of electricity and protection of our power lines in our coverage area.

𝗣𝗥𝗘𝗦𝗦 𝗥𝗘𝗟𝗘𝗔𝗦𝗘09 March 2024 DIGOS CITY – In the spirit of cooperation, National Electrification Administration (NEA) Administrator Antonio Mariano C. Almeda encourages Electric Cooperatives to support one another for the shared goal of rural development. Such was the inspiration behind DASURECO’s generous gesture to its sister cooperative, Lanao del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (LASURECO). By virtue of Board Resolution No. 327 series of 2023, DASURECO committed to donate an Electronic Accounting System to LASURECO to enhance their operational and financial efficiency. The assistance also provides for the proper training of its use along with four (4) desktop computer sets. On March 1st to 8th, 2024, eleven (11) employees of LASURECO underwent the user training, namely: Hosnia Edris, Nadjeha Hadji Aiman, Farhan Asum and Mohammad Sarangani from Finance Services Department; Kimar Andog, Aminnuddin Makunug, Mohammad Cali and Mohammad Ramos from Corporate Planning Department; Hidjarah Hilal from the Internal Audit Department; and Executive Assistant Kince Alhansah Panondiongan, from the Office of the General Manager. The training was facilitated by DASURECO’s personnel from the Corporate Planning Department – Information and Communications Technology Division. “We express our deep gratitude to DASURECO for consistently helping LASURECO in attaining its normalcy stage. The Accounting and General Ledger System will help improve and enhance our internal procedures and other activities,” said LASURECO’s General Manager Nordjiana L. Dipatuan-Ducol in statement sent via Viber. “You are part of our success story,” she added. Prior to this initiative, LASURECO relied solely on manual accounting processes which are time-consuming in nature, often taking days or even weeks to complete financial tasks. As a result, this system causes delays in financial reporting, such as the Monthly Financial and Statistical Report (MFSR), limiting their Cooperative’s capacity to properly navigate its financial situation. Despite the challenges they faced, including the 2017 Marawi Siege that
