More LGUs seeking ERC
help in power contracts


The local government units under the franchise area of Central Negros Electric Cooperative will ask the Energy Regulatory Commission to shed light on how the power sales contracts entered into by CENECO with certain power suppliers will affect them, Bacolod Councilor Archie Baribar said yesterday.

The franchise areas covered by CENECO include Bacolod, Bago, Talisay, Silay and Don Salvador Benedicto. Representative of the areas covered by Ceneco attended a power conference at the Bishop’s House yesterday morning.

Baribar said an ERC meeting to be held in Bacolod will also be a good occasion for officials of the commission be aware of the situation in the CENECO franchise areas and for the LGU’s to be updated on the intricacies and consequences of the actions taken by the CENECO Board.moremoremore

Ceneco airs side
on Manta claim

The general manager of the  Central Negros Electric Cooperative said yesterday that it does not have a power supply contract with Manta Energy Inc.

 Sulpicio  Lagarde  said CENECO is compelled to issue a clarification because of what he claimed to be an apparent all-out and expensive media campaign by Manta Energy to force CENECO  to accept a 22mw power supply contract that Manta officials claim CENECO signed on March 17, 2009 with it under its previous name,  IN2Power.

Lagarde said the contract was never evaluated and deliberated by the CENECO Board of Directors although one document showed a signature of then CENECO president Vicente Sabornay.moremoremore

‘Ramy did not
deserve to be killed’


“She was good and sweet, she did not deserve that kind of death.”

That was the reaction of Elizabeth Hilario, St. Scholastica’s Academy-Bacolod registrar, and many others yesterday to the New York killing of special education teacher Ramy Jacildo, 22, of 88 B.S. Aquino Drive, Bacolod City.

Jacildo, a graduate of SSA Bacolod, was shot dead Saturday by her Italian-American boyfriend, Vincent Russo, 26, of Virginia at a Woodward Terrace home in Central Valley, New York, after which he took his own life in an apparent murder-suicide, the NY police reported.moremoremore
