SULU — Bangsamoro region’s Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources, and Energy (MENRE) conducted a dialogue with Sulu Electric Cooperative (SULECO) and Siasi Electric Cooperative, Inc. (SIASELCO), as well as land a classification in the province on Nov. 30-Dec 4.
MENRE sought to discuss with SULECO and SIASELCO the possible assistance the ministry can provide to the electric cooperatives in their operations in the province.
“Titingnan namin ‘yong mga possible assistance na pwedeng gawin ni MENRE para sa mga electric cooperatives especially in terms of technicalities,” MENRE Electric Power Industry Engr. Zurhaidin Engga said.
“Na-raise up din ng mga electric cooperatives yung possible electrification assistance (ng MENRE) sa improvement ng system nila,” Engga added.
Under the R.A. 11054 or the Bangsamoro Organic Law (BOL), the Bangsamoro Government “may assist electric cooperatives operating exclusively in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in accessing funds and technology to ensure their financial and operational viability. Assistance may be in the form of restructuring of debts, with rehabilitation and efficiency improvement measures based on a set of clear time-bound operational reform programs.”
MENRE conducted land classification in some island municipalities in Sulu to assist the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR) in their proposed diesel power plant project in the province. (Bangsamoro Information Office)
