BACOLOD City – The Central Negros Electric Cooperative (Ceneco) assured there will be no power interruption during May 13 polls in the city.
Roel Venus, chief of Ceneco Member-Consumer Integrated Services Division, said they have formed additional emergency crew that will instantly respond to “unscheduled” power interruptions.
“We will try our best to ensure there will be no power outages so that the poll procedures will run smoothly,” Venus stressed.
Ceneco franchise areas are the cities of Bacolod, Silay, Talisay, and Bago including the towns of Murcia and Salvador Benidecto.
Venus assured their line crew are ready to render overtime to instantly fix electricity related troubles that may arise.
The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) meanwhile activated the 24/7 operations of its Overall Command Center from May 10 to 16 to secure power transmission operations and facilities in this year’s elections.
“Contingency plans are in place to monitor and quickly address any grid disturbance,” NGCP said.
NGCP’s critical units, such as System Operations and Operations and Maintenance, will also remain operational. Line crew, engineers, pilots, maintenance, testing, and other technical personnel are also strategically positioned in NGCP’s substations if line tripping should occur./PN
