NEA mulls creation of electrification program for farmers

Print

National Electrification Administration (NEA) chief Edgardo R. Masongsong is currently studying the creation of a program aimed at helping energize the farms in the country.
Masongsong expressed interest in crafting an electrification program for farmers during his recent meeting with the officers and members of the Northeast Luzon Electric Cooperatives Association, Inc. (Neleca) at the main office of Isabela I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Iselco I) in Alicia, Isabela.
"Let us not just focus on electrifying the the nation's households. Let us focus as well on energizing our country's farms," the NEA administrator said, adding that the electrification of the farms will give farmers the opportunity to increase production and increase their revenues.
"Nakita namin doon sa Aklan ang daming fishpond pero kokonti ang production kasi traditional na fishpond. Pero 'nung nag-introduce kami ng aerator sa mga fishpond doon sa Aklan, dumami 'yung produksyon nila ng bangus, 'yung may aerator, kasi gagamit ka ng kuryente doon," explained Masongsong.
NEA has been implementing two electrification projects: the Sitio Electrification Program (SEP) and the Barangay Line Enhancement Program (BLEP).
Started in 2011, SEP aims to energize sitios through on-grid electrification. In 2016, the agency and its partner electric cooperatives have completed energizing 3,335 sitios nationwide. For 2017, NEA has committed to electrify 2,140 sitios.
Meanwhile, BLEP aims to reenergize barangay lines using upgraded engineering options. NEA targets to complete a total of 104 BLEP projects nationwide, of which seven are submarine cable installations and six are tapping point upgrading.
Administrator Masongsong was in Isabela last Tuesday, May 9, to grace the inauguration and formal energization of the 20 MVA Substation and Drive-thru Collection Office of Iselco I located in San Fermin, Cauayan City.
Iselco I General Manager Virgilio L. Montano said the P50-million facility, which has been operational since March of this year, will provide additional energy supply to the towns of Cauayan City, Cabatuan and Luna. ###
