Wazzup Pilipinas!

As Typhoon Lawin heads out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility, Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi directed concerned energy agencies to execute full and immediate restoration of power facilities damaged by the typhoon.

"Restoration of power facilities are underway to bring back electricity service in the typhoon-hit areas in Northern Luzon," said Secretary Cusi.

The Secretary said, “Public safety is the primary consideration when it comes to rehabilitation, so we have to first check and assess the effect of the typhoon to these facilities.”

“I am also urging our kababayans to coordinate with their local officials and authorities on any incidents affecting these facilities and for their families to take extra caution in using their electrical equipment,” Cusi advised.

“On the distribution lines, the National Electrification Administration (NEA) is monitoring and assessing the status of electric cooperatives (EC) for rehabilitation.”

“The typhoon-affected areas are covered by 14 ECs including the Cagayan I & II Electric Cooperatives (CAGELCO I & II), Isabela I & II Electric Cooperatives (ISELCO), Nueva Vizcaya Electric Cooperative (NUVELCO), Quirino Electric Cooperative (QUIRELCO), Abra Electric Cooperative (ABRECO), Benguet Electric Cooperative (BENECO), Mt. Province Electric Cooperative (MOPRECO), Ifugao Electric Cooperative (IFELCO), Kalinga Electric Cooperative (KAELCO), Ilocos Norte Electric Cooperative (INEC), Ilocos Sur Electric Cooperative (ISECO) and La Union Electric Cooperative (LUELCO).”

Secretary Cusi informed, “As of October 20, 2016, 7:00 pm, the ECs have partially or totally restored electricity service in 31 municipalities out of the 248 municipalities or 12.5% of the typhoon-affected areas as follows: two in BENECO, seven in ISECO , 12 in LUELCO, one in ISELCO I and nine under NUVELCO.”
