14 November 2013
The National Electrification Administration (NEA) and 34 electric cooperatives (ECs) in Luzon and Mindanao have deployed 226 engineers and linemen to assist nine coops in Visayas in their power restoration efforts in the aftermath of super typhoon Yolanda.
The nine task force teams started to be deployed on November 12 to Capiz, Iloilo, Aklan, Leyte, Biliran and Eastern Samar. Dispatched NEA engineers and ECs’ technical staff are conducting assessment in all areas affected by typhoon Yolanda. Power restoration and rehabilitation will be supervised by NEA. NEA and the ECs aim to rebuild distribution lines simultaneously with the repair of the transmission lines in order to fast track power restoration to consumers.
NEA, ECs aid Tarlac City in power restoration
6 November 2013
The bayanihan spirit lives on as the National Electrification Administration (NEA) and five electric cooperatives in Central Luzon formed Task Force Kapatid Santi upon the request of a Private Investor Owned Utility (PIOU) in Tarlac City to speedily restore power in time for the Barangay Elections.
Power was restored in two days in the 10 barangays in the city being served by Tarlac Enterprises Inc. (TEI). It would have taken two weeks to restore power without the task force. Administrator Edita S. Bueno said, "NEA and the ECs are glad and willing to assist all instututions, regardless of area coverage, when our assistance is needed for the benefit of our country and our people".
