Slam House Bill No. 09978 granting power giant an expanded franchise
TAGUM CITY—Protests have snowballed against the granting of the congressional franchise to the Aboitiz-owned Davao Light and Power Company (DLPC), which is expanding its operation to six towns and two cities in Davao del Norte and Davao de Oro provinces.
Mario Angelo Sotto, general manager of the Northern Davao Electric Cooperative Inc. (Nordeco), and Engr. Emmanuel Galarse, Nordeco supervisor who helped unify the electric cooperative’s feuding factions two years ago, said in a position paper that granting the franchise to DLPC through House Bill No. 09978 would double the electric rates of households in its distribution charges.
A manifesto, signed by 94,000 Nordeco members, said the privatization of the areas covered by the DLPC franchise application would adversely affect the national government’s Sitio Electrification Program (SEP) and deprive more than 600 still-to-be-energized sitios under Nordeco operation.
181 school bags and school supplies provided by SMCPC were given to the residents of Sitio Rizal particularly the students of Rizal Integrated School in Binancian, Asuncion, Davao del Norte during the NORDECO’s OPLAN BALIK ESKWELA ON WHEELS last October 15,2021.
Present in the event were Mayor Eufracio Dayaday Jr., School Head Eugene Divinagracia, ISD Manager Marilou R. Impuesto,Area 3 Services Head Ferdinand Giangan and NCECCO Barangay Chairperson Mary Ann Arnejo.
Aside from the school supplies, the residents of Sitio Rizal were also beneficiaries of food packs on the Community Pantry On Wheels program.
In a message given by Mayor Dayaday, he emphasized that NORDECO, Inc. provides these kind of programs to the Member-Consumer-Owners as its way of giving back to the people as it doesn’t only distributes electricity but also conducts social activities that people shall benefit.
Moreover, he stands firm in his decision against Privatization of the EC and he urged the people to believe in facts.Programs by the EC like Oplan Balik Eskwela is part of its Corporate Social Responsibility.
The Electric Coop aims to distribute school supplies, alcohol, multivitamins and provide free school wiring inspection in the public schools within the franchise area.
