SORECO II implements no-power-bill-collector policy

by Irma A. Guhit

SORSOGON CITY, January 5 (PIA) -- There will be no more SORECO II power bill collectors, the management of the Sorsogon Electric Cooperative (SORECO) II here issued this policy starting this year.

This new scheme was implemented by SORECO management in order to increase their collection efficiency, especially this year since consumers will be the one to proceed to the SORECO II paying centers, pay their monthly electric bills and no request for extension will be made.

Before, consumers could request from their collectors to just return or beg off to pay so sometimes, even two months electric bill consumption are provided an extension.

This time, it will be different since non-payment on said due date of monthly electric consumption as stipulated in their power bill for the month will mean automatic disconnection according to management.

It was also learned that with the implementation of this new scheme, the consumers have become more aware of their responsibility in settling their electric consumption and have personally go to the paying center for payment.

It was also noticed, according to management, that their collection efficiency had increased.

Member-owner consumers are now more aware in paying on time their electric bills as now observed even for the first few days only of this month.

SORECO II believes that they are creating empowerment and savings, as cost in the percentage payment that goes to the collectors will be saved and will also be definitely used for improving the services of the electric cooperative.

Consumer’s monthly electric payments due will only be given a 48-hour notice or a two day grace period to settle their account otherwise implementation of automatic disconnection will be imposed. (MAL/IAG, PIA Sorsogon)
