DAVAO DEL NORTE, March 31 (PIA) - - After two weeks of blackout, the Island Garden City of Samal will experience again the power of electricity tomorrow as the 6-megawatt modular generator set will be in operation.
Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative (DANECO) Manager Charles Bejod confirmed that they are now installing the modular genset that arrived by batches starting yesterday (March 29).
“Paningkamotan namo ni nga mapaandar ugma sa hapon o labing dugay sa pagkadlawon (We will try to switch on tomorrow afternoon or the most on the following dawn,” Bejod swore.
DANECO signed a contract with the Mindoro Grid Corporation in a power supply agreement (PSA) for the use of the modular genset.
“PSA mani, bayaran lang nato kung pila atong na nagamit (Since this is under a PSA, we will pay only for the scope of our usage,” he added.
The island has been in blackout since March 1 as a vessel hit the submarine cable of DANECO, which connects Samal to the power grid. (PIA11, Michael Uy)
