‘Stop buying PEDC power,
penalize Ceneco officials’

The National Association of Electricity Consumers for Reforms Inc. has filed a petition with the Energy Regulatory Commission asking it to order Central Negros Electric Cooperative and its officers to immediately stop purchasing power from Panay Energy Development Corp. and collecting charges from its consumers.

NASECOR, represented by its president Pete Ilagan, also asked ERC to order CENECO general manager Sulpicio Lagarde Jr. to immediately submit to the Commission, under oath, all records of CENECO on purchases of power from PEDC and the charges collected from its consumers.

It also asks the ERC to impose on the respondents the penalties provided under Section 45 of the Electric Power Industry Reform Act.moremoremore

Disqualification case
vs. Cordova dismissed


The National Electrification Administration Committee on Electoral Protest has ordered the dismissal of the appeal filed by former Central Negros Electric Cooperative Board president Edward Gasambelo on the disqualification case he had filed against Roy Cordova, for lack of merit.

Gasameblo, who was defeated by Cordova for board of director for District IV-Bacolod East during the CENECO election on April 30, 2011, filed an appeal on the decision of the District Election Committee of CENECO on May 6, 2011 dismissing his motion for reconsideration for lack of jurisdiction.

The petition he filed questioning the qualification of Cordova to run for member of the CENECO board of directors, had earlier been dismissed by the screening committee.moremoremore

COA on latest audit report

Marañon said he does not know why the COA did not have such accounts reconciled on a yearly basis, because asking the provincial government to go back through the years will be difficult.

Some of the documents needed to reconcile such accounts may even no longer exist, he said.moremoremore
