CDO will not be experiencing any power interruptions

The Cagayan de Oro Electric Power and Light Company (CEPALCO) assures the public that the city will not be experiencing any power shortage or blackouts in the next month despite the news of a power shortage in Mindanao. Their are certain areas around Mindanao experiencing rotational brown outs and power supply cuts due to scheduled preventive maintenance and river desilting operations conducted by the NPC and the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) at the Pulangi hydro power plants in Bukidnon.

CEPALCO already has planned measures to prevent rotating blackouts, which were experienced by most Kagayan-ons last 2010 when rotational brownouts were imposed in the city. According to Marilyn Chavez, Cepalco’s community relations manager, the electric company will be sourcing out power from the diesel plant of Minergy located in barangay Tablon. The diesel plant is said to have been producing 27-Megawatt power to the consuming public under the service area of Cepalco.

Local consumers are also urged to be part of the energy saving campaign and applying it at home or in the office in order to save electricity thereby helping save money and resources for future use.
