systems loss of Noreco 2

The Green Core Geothermal Inc. generation company supplier is assisting the Tanjay sub-office of the Negros Oriental Electric Cooperative 2 in resolving the high percentage of systems loss of 20 percent in its coverage area, its press release said.

GCGI is implementing its assistance program in systems loss reduction to its clients. It was learned that the cooperative has a systems loss between 17 and 20 percent, which is more than the 13 percent allowed by the Energy Regulatory Commission, the press release said.

The team installed a mother meter in the 25 kilovolt-ampere and 37.5 KVA distribution transformers to compare the actual kilowatt consumption of consumers, whose kilowatt-hour meters are attached to the system, the press release also said.

point for illegal drugs

CEBU CITY – Chief Supt. Danilo Constantino, Police Regional Office 7 director, yesterday belied a recent disclosure that Cebu is one of the top provinces in the Philippines where illegal drugs business thrives.

Constantino said Cebu has been identified as a transit point for drugs and not necessarily a haven for the trade.

He made the clarification after a statement of Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency 7 officer-in-charge Esperidion Javier that Cebu is number one in the illegal drugs trade in Central Visayas, followed by Bohol and Negros Oriental.
