Ifugao electric coop energizes 3 barangays

by Vency D. Bulayungan

LAGAWE, Ifugao (1 September) -- In support to the national government's goal of full energization of the country's 41,945 barangays by 2009, the Ifugao Electric Cooperative (IFELCO) has energized two more barangays in the province this year with one ongoing.

Jovita Allaga, the Officer in Charge of IFELCO said that a ceremonial switch on for the electrification of Barangay Dalligan in the municipality of Kiangan will be witnessed by consumers during the annual general assembly and the 30th anniversary of the cooperative on September 1, at the St. Joseph's School compound in Kiangan.

Dalligan is the last barangay of Kiangan to be energized. Allaga said that MIRANT Philippines Foundation, the donor of the electrification project in Dalligan was invited to witness the ceremonial switching.

"The newly energized households were very lucky because they given free electric meters," Allaga said

Allaga disclosed that energization of barangay Barangay Itab in the municipality of Aguinaldo with 166 households was completed in August 1 this year while barangay Langayan of the municipality of Mayoyao with 100 households is still on going.

Out of 175 barangays here, IFELCO was able to energize 167 barangays. This is in line with the electrification program of the government through the Department of Energy (DOE) which subsidizes said electrification projects, Allaga said.

As the Energy Regulatory Board is set to issue a provisional authority that will reduce the rates of the state run power firm, Allaga also said that the consumers will be happier with the reduction of the power rates by more than a peso by October. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
