Moresco II one with 17 power coops threatened by energy dept

Correspondent . 

MEDINA, Misamis Oriental–The Misamis Oriental II Electric Service Cooperative (Moresco II) has expressed its solidarity with other 17 other electric cooperatives that had been threatened with franchise cancellation by the energy department.

Engr. Danielo Jamolin, Moresco II board president, told a news conference here that despite Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi’s move to take back the recommendation for Congress to cancel the franchises, the electric cooperatives would be vigilant against such moves in the future.

The Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association (Philreca) earlier condemned Cusi’s Jan. 29 move against 17 “ailing” electric cooperatives because of their poor performance. This despite, Cusi’s move to drop his recommendation after Philreca protested.

The 17 electric cooperatives are Abreco, Pelco III, Omeco, Ormeco, Paleco, Casureco III, Aleco, Maselco, Ficelco, Tiselco, Zamcelco, Daneco, Baselco, Suleco, Tawelco, Magelco and Lasureco.

“Walay due process deretso lag disisyon pag-recommend sa 17 coops ngadto sa Congress nga matangtangan  ug prankisa,” said Jamolin.

He said the organized electric cooperatives are not backing down, and would  stand their ground against such a move.

Moresco II general manager Engr. Ronel Cañada said at least 121 electric cooperatives nationwide were one with the 17 electric cooperatives.
