PNoy earmarks P1.3-billion for rural electrification in Mindanao

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Jan. 30 (PIA) -- President Benigno Aquino III has approved recently the release of P1.31 billion for rural electrification program in Mindanao.

This was announced before the 1st Mindanao Congress of the Advocates for Renewable Energy and Rural Electrification and Development (MinCARED) organized by the Association of Mindanao Rural Electric Cooperatives (AMRECO) here Thursday, by Administrator Edita Bueno of the National Electrification Administration (NEA).

Bueno said that the program shall benefit 100 barangays and 1,320 sitios in the island-region.

She said that the government shall provide for the distribution system including the supply of kilowatt-meter to beneficiaries.

She added that beneficiaries from the sitios will receive P2,500 subsidy from NEA.

The amount is enough for them to buy two bulbs and two outlets as well as pay for the installation fee, according to Bueno.

ďIt is rather difficult for people from the sitios to cash out for the said materials and pay for the installation fee,Ē she said.

Bueno said, however, that the beneficiaries are capable of paying the monthly bill which would amount to P75 at the minimum.
