NEA Holds Consultative Meeting for Mindanao Electric Cooperatives


Among the concerns raised which are of national implication were the date of subsidy release, NEA Charter Change – one particular suggestion of which is the inclusion of NEA’s independence, allocation of Universal Charge-Missionary Electrification (UCME) to NEA, active involvement of 1-Care representatives in all ECs’ issues, 1-Grid – 1-Rate Policy, intensive Information and Education Campaigns (IECs) of ECs, development of CorCom Plan, support of private distribution utilities (DUs) in maintaining ECs as cooperatives, participation of power players in the rule-making of Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) and the need for NEA to push for rules and/or advisory, directives and guidelines to become part of the ERC rules.

On the regional level, the following matters were brought up:

  1. inclusion of Power Supply Aggregation Group (PSAG) matter and other proposals to solve the energy and power concerns in Mindanao as an amendment to the Power Development Plan
  2. renewal of the Transition Supply Contract (TSC) for the 21 ECs participating in the PSAG through the Association of Mindanao Rural Electric Cooperatives (AMRECO)-PSAG Corporation and not to the individual ECs
  3. NEA and EC/AMRECO to lobby for the fast-tracking of the Leyte-Surigao interconnection and nodal pricing to mitigate the increase in power rate and negative economic and social impact to Mindanao due to one-grid, one-rate policy
  4. associations or AMRECO to be tapped by NEA for help in ailing ECs

Lastly, there was a suggestion to continue the weekly National Broadcast by NEA to update the ECs on the current realities in the power industry in general and NEA and EC in particular, and massive media blitz to counter the issues on EC indebtedness.

The holding of consultative meeting is one effective way for the Administrator to get first-hand concerns from the ECs and from there, find ways to address them.  This also strengthens the relationship and fosters trust and confidence between NEA and ECs.
