Negros upland villages get electricity for first time

Negros Occidental (19 August) -- The once dark villages in upland San Carlos City, this province, were able to see light at night for the first time.

43 upland households of Sitio Balabag and Sitio Alingaob both of Barangay Quezon benefited from the electrification project of the city government of San Carlos City when the supply of electricity was switched on by local officials here recently.

Vice Mayor Gerardo P. Valmayor, Jr., who was the Acting City Mayor, turned over the completed project to barangay officials and led the Switch-On Ceremony.

The project is also in harmony with the thrust of the national government on energy security for all.

The project includes the construction of three primary poles and 13 secondary poles worth P541,121.96 allocated through the lump sum supplemental budget.

Valmayor said that with the electrification project, the city is not only helping the residents enjoy the benefits of modern appliances but also helps the students study their lessons at night with convenience.

Valmayor also advised the residents to be wary with of electric consumption and use it wisely to avoid having problems with their bills. (San Carlos/PIA/EAD) [top]
