Negros Oriental coop seeks public help in reporting brownouts

By Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (29 February) -- The Negros Oriental 1 Electric Cooperative (NORECO I) based in Bindoy town has appealed to its power consumers to immediately report power interruptions to their office.

Engr. Jose Jaculbe, Jr. of NORECO I especially made the appeal to NORECO I member-consumers residing in far-flung barangays where maintenance crews spend almost a day just to get there.

"In case of brownouts, we will schedule the repair the following day. So please let us know right away to give the maintenance crew ample time to make the necessary repairs while it's still daylight," Jaculbe said.

Jaculbe made the appeal during an out-of-town Kapihan forum held recently by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) in Guihulngan.

In the forum, he explained that power interruptions often happen due to either clearing activities or falling tree limbs. "Dili kalikayan daghang kahoy inig katumba ma-igo ang linya." Of this, he said bamboos are common culprits.

Jaculbe urged NORECO I electric consumers to inform the electric cooperative's linemen of areas with situations like this. "Please let us know if you notice areas nga ang mga linya hapit na matumbahan sa kahoy o kawayan para ma-clearing dayon sa linemen," he added.

NORECO I have recently announced that all 285 total barangays in its coverage areas from Mabinay to Canlaon City have been energized as of Dec. 31, 2007. (PIA/RMN) [top]
