Surneco team deserves credit for speedy power restoration in quake-hit areas-NEA

Print

The Surigao del Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Surneco) deserves credit for making power available in the quake-hit areas at the soonest possible time after a magnitude 6.7 quake resulted in power outages in Surigao City and other municipalities in the province of Surigao del Norte.
This according to National Electrification Administration (NEA) Chief Edgardo Masongsong, who on Sunday lauded the officials and employees of Surneco "for heeding the call of duty even if they themselves were affected by the earthquake."
"This crisis displays the commitment of the electric cooperative to prioritize the interests of the Member-Consumer-Owners and lessen the impact of the calamity on their daily activity,” said the NEA chief.

As of February 12, 2017, Surigao City and all four affected municipalities under the coverage area of Surneco are already energized. The four municipalities include San Francisco, Malimono, Sison, and Taganaan.
Administrator Masongsong said that as of February 13, power restoration is already at 97%. The rest of the restoration works, he stressed, will be concentrated on reconnecting lateral lines and power lines near the coastal areas.
Masongsong flew to Surigao on Sunday to make an ocular inspection of the main office of Surneco, which was heavily damaged in the earthquake.
The estimated cost of the damage to the coop’s headquarters is estimated at seven million pesos, while line network damage is estimated at 300,000 pesos.
“We want to assure our affected Member-Consumer-Owners that the NEA and Surneco are doing round-the-clock operations to be able to provide power to areas that are as yet unenergized," Masongsong said.
"We will likewise continue to upgrade the prepositioning capacities of electric cooperatives nationwide to allow them to better respond to calamities and other emergency situations."###
