Samar rural electrification hits 92%

By Eli C. Dalumpines

Almost all the villages in Samarís 2nd district, including those in the interior, are now enjoying the blessings modern technology brings after the government extended to them the power services through its rural electrification program.

Samar II Electric Cooperative (SAMELCO II) General Manager Ponciano Rosales, in a media forum Thursday, reported that his office has already hit 92% of its rural electrification target as of March 6, this year.

According to Rosales, SAMELCO II has already energized 481 barangays out of the 524 barangays under its service area which covers all the 16 towns in the 2nd district, including the island towns of Daram and Zumarraga.

Rosales said only 43 barangays under SAMELCO IIís service area remain un-energized as of press time but he informed that work programs for the electrification of these barangays are already lined up.

He further informed that SAMELCO II has set to complete the electrification of the remaining un-energized barangays by 2008.

The summary report of the Cooperative showed that among the 16 towns it covered, Calbiga has the highest number of still un-energized barangays. Fourteen out of the 41 barangays of Calbiga have yet to be energized, the report said.

Meanwhile, SAMELCO II has already made preparations for the upcoming elections this May.

Rosales said a task force was already formed to address possible power interruptions in the day of the elections. (PIA-Samar) [top]
