PIA Press Release

SOCOTECO II resumes rotational brownouts after elections

General Santos City (13 May) -- The South Cotabato Electric Cooperative (SOCOTECO) II announced that there is still no letting up with rotational brown-out as revised schedule is now set at six-hour basis twice daily starting May 17, 2010.

This is also to compensate for the "no-brownout scheme" during the past five days since Saturday due to the scheduled elections.

It was also learned that the General Santos City Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (GSCCI) has raised concern with the current set-up of three-hour rotational brown-out, citing difficulty in maintaining their equipment and manpower.

On May 8, 2010, during a dialogue with Socoteco II officials, they presented the proposal to set rotational brown-out at six hours, twice per day, the Socoteco II, in a statement said.

To compensate the longer brown-out in one setting for residential customers, GSCCI stated that they will get power from SOCOTECO II only for twelve (12) hours daily.

It said that any residual supply for the day will automatically be prioritized to residential customers. All customer types have equal hours of "on" and "off" in the schedule.

But Socoteco II stressed that actual implementation varies depending upon NGCP?s load drop advisories.

Socoteco II franchise area is still experiencing nine to twelve hours power curtailment from National Power Corporation (NPC) and National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP).

The NPC and NGCP, power generation and transmission companies, have yet to give the actual power situation in Mindanao considering that heavy rains were already experienced towards the end of April to present. (PIA SarGen) [top]
