ERC Ordered Local Electric Utility to Collect Additional Rate

Starting this month, electric consumers of the Nueva Vizcaya Electric Cooperative (Nuvelco) will experience a surge in their electric bill as the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) issued an order directing to collect an additional P0.0120/kwh in its billing cycle.

The implementation of the additional rate is in line with the application of the National Transmission Corporation (Transco) with the Commission for the approval of the feed-in-tariff allowance in ERC Case No. 2015-216RC

Electricity has come to 56 sitios mostly located in the far-flung area as the year 2015 come to an end. The Nueva Vizcaya Electric Cooperative (NUVELCO) thru the National Electrification Administration (NEA) has electrified these far-flung sitios benefitting initial consumers of 1,680. 

This project dubbed as Sitio Electrification Program (SEP) is a national government project aimed of electrifying the whole country and to raise the standard of living of these far-flung areas.

Nuvelco general manager Narciso Salunat said that the energization of the sitios thru the national government is part of the Aquino Administration’s social contract with the Filipino people.  He added that Congressman Carlos Padilla has been instrumental for the immediate implementation of the said projects who personally follow-up the release of the funds intended for the 56 sitios.

In line with this, NUVELCO and NEA has included free electric meters, service drop, housewiring and installation cost for initial 30 households.  This implies that consumers will not spend any single centavo in purchasing wires and bulbs because this is freely granted to them except for the fees that have to be paid directly to Nuvelco. 

Most of the sitios benefited by the project are located in Alfonso Castaneda, Ambaguio, Aritao, Diadi, Kayapa, Kasibu and Dupax del Sur/Norte.
