Noreco 2 gets lower
rates for customers

The Negros Oriental II Electric Cooperative and Green Core Geothermal Inc. signed yesterday an amendment to their power supply agreement for a P0.45 per kilowatt hour rate reduction effective October 26 this year.

The extended term will be from December 25, 2020 to December 25, 2035 to ensure power supply security for its consumers.

The amended contract will benefit Noreco 2 customers as it provides for the delivery of 25-megawatt of clean geothermal power at reduced rate pursuant to the re-pricing provisions and market-based structure in the original ten-year PSA, the Energy Development Corporation said.

RTC translates
anti-drugs law to Cebuano


The provisions of Republic Act 9165, or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002, have been translated into the Cebuano dialect by the Regional Trial Court Branch 36, one of two designated drugs court in Negros Oriental.

Presiding Judge Joseph Elmaco of RTC Branch 36 proposed the reproduction of the booklet, with 91 pages, so provisions of RA 9165 can be understood fully by the people, especially barangay officials.

However, the Cebuano version could not be shared with the barangays and students who are the most vulnerable to illegal drugs due to monetary constraints.

Brownout tomorrow

The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines announced yesterday a scheduled power service interruption 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow in areas serviced by the Negros Oriental 2 Electric Cooperative.

Areas to be affected are the entire Sta. Catalina, Bayawan and Basay serviced by the Bayawan substation; and Alis-is, Bugay, Dawis, Kalamtukan, Kalumboyan, San Jose, Tabuan and Villasol (Bato) in Bayawan City, serviced by the Banaba substation.

Meanwhile, the brownout that occurred 8:10-10:10 a.m. yesterday in Mantuyop, Siaton to boundary of Bonawon, Siaton and Fatima, Sta. Catalina, was caused by an emergency replacement of a primary pole that was rammed by a vehicle.*JFP
