NORECO 2 reduces
generation charge

The Negros Oriental II Electric Cooperative will reflect a decreased generation charge of P0.0737 per kilowatt-hour in the January power bills of its member consumers, its general manager, Eunora Sameon, said yesterday.

Sameon said that, instead of the P5.9661 per kilowatt-hour rate, the cooperative is passing on a generation charge of P5.8924 kWh.

She said the discount is due to the availment by the electric coop of the 3.2 percent prompt payment from Green Core Geothermal Inc. and that P2,859,012 has been deducted from the bills of customers as of January 4, 2013.

Silliman looking for investors

The Silliman University in Dumaguete City is encouraging investment collaborations and partnerships with alumni and other stakeholders, a press release from SU said.

Jane Annette Belarmino, vice president for development, said the school is now considering proposals from individuals and organizations who want to participate in the continuing ministry of the SU through investment undertakings, like partnerships, joint ventures, and build-operate-transfer arrangements toward improving its facilities, such as the dormitories, laboratories, specialized equipment, convention centers, and other amenities that support academic learning and knowledge exchange, the press release also said.

39 Pinoys home from Algeria

MANILA – Dozens of Filipinos arrived home yesterday after being sent home by their employer in Algeria due to security fears following an Islamic militant attack at a remote gas plant.

Many of the 39 returnees said they worked for a British energy facility hundreds of kilometres from the In Amenas gas plant that was attacked by the militants last week.

"We were far from the gas plant that was attacked," said Cerilo Tundag, 52, as the group arrived in Manila airport aboard a commercial flight from Dubai.
