12 Millionth electricity connection marks 8th National Electrification Awareness Month

Print

National Electrification Administration (NEA) will hold a ceremonial "switch-on" event in Barangay Apokon, Tagum City on Friday, August 25, to mark the 12 millionth consumer connection under the government's Rural Electrification Program.
NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong will lead the symbolic lighting of the 12 millionth household connection with the presence of House Speaker and Davao del Norte 1st District Representative Pantaleon Alvarez and Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.
The 12 millionth rural electricity connection beneficiary is identified as Rocie Donggon, a member of indigenous Lumad community in Barangay Apokon, Tagum City, which is within the coverage area of the Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Daneco).
Administrator Masongsong described the 12 millionth household connection as another huge milestone for NEA, which recently marked its 48th founding anniversary.
"This connection is a landmark achievement of the rural electrification movement and an auspicious event in the program, not only because we are celebrating the 8th National Electrification Awareness Month, but also because this represents the compassion of the Duterte administration by bringing electricity services to the poorest of our countrymen," the NEA chief said.
From 2011 to 2016, Masongsong said NEA had successfully completed the electrification of 32,441 sitios under the Sitio Electrification Program (SEP). The agency is targeting to energize 2,410 sitios this year and another 1,800 sitios in 2018, the administrator added.
An attached agency of the Department of Energy, NEA is mandated to carry out the total electrification of the country.
Since 1969, the Rural Electrification Program through the NEA and its partner-ECs successfully energized 78 provinces, 90 cities, 1,385 municipalities, 36,051 barangays and 118,855 sitios as of July 15, 2017. This represents 83 percent of the sitios within the NEA and EC coverage areas.###
