NEA: Electricity supply in Samal is now stable

The power supply situation in the Samal Island is now stable after enduring years of blackouts due to serious damage in the submarine cable of Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative Inc., the National Electrification Administration  said Wednesday.

NEA administrator Edgardo Masongsong said Igacos Mayor Al David Uy informed him that the electricity supply had significantly improved in his city as soon as Daneco fixed the  underwater power line. 

Masongsong said the repair was a welcome development, especially in light of the holiday season. 

“This is a breath of fresh air for the member-consumer-owners in Samal Island who rightfully deserve a decent and reliable electricity service, especially with the resurgence of tourism-related economic activity in Mindanao,” the NEA chief said. 

Uy said the electric cooperative signed a power supply agreement with Mindoro Grid Corp. to supplement the requirement of their island through its eight-megawatt modular generator set in Barangay Mambago-a, Peñaplata.
