TRO restores power in Ticao Island

by EA Delgado

Masbate City (26 February) -- The 12-hour power outage imposed by the National Power Corporation (NPAC) on January 26-28 to the Ticao Island Electric Cooperative (TISELCO) for failure to pay P46 million in electric bills was lifted following a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) issued on January 29 this year.

TISELCO officials went to the court to stop the government firm from cutting electricity in the island.

The TRO, however was not enough to cross out the prospect of abbreviated electricity after the order lapsed on Friday, February 13.

Serafin D. Marcaida, Jr., Napocor manager for Masbate blamed the TISELCO for the outage.

Appearing at last Monday's session of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, Marcaida said Napocor proposed an agreement with TISELCO over how the power bills will be settled, otherwise power will be cut automatically.

"But TISELCO was hesitant to sign a power supply agreement with Napocor," Marcaida said.

Apparently suggesting that the failure of the cooperative to settle its account with the Napocor was a result of mismanagement, Marcaida said "TISELCO, which started operation in 1991, owed the Napocor some P17 million in unpaid bills by 2005.

But Guillermo Villamor, TISELCO director and vice president, disputed Napocor's accounts.

Villamor insisted that TISELCO owes the Napocor some P17 million only.

The Provincial Board asked Napocor to grant TISELCO's request for the state-run power firm to write off its unpaid bills, including interests.

Napocor's decision, however, would be known apparently after the TRO lapsed next Friday. (PIA Masbate) [top]
