MORE Power consistently seeks innovative solutions to reduce inconvenience for consumers impacted by the 12-hour scheduled power outages.

Last week, the power distribution utility provided free water for washing and bathing of consumers affected by the power interruption due to maintenance work. This weekend, in response to the needs of their consumers, MORE Power not only supplied water but also offered free charging for their devices and appliances.

“Together with Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Trenas, we are providing free water to affected barangays during the power interruption. Additionally, we are offering free charging (using a mobile generator) for cellphones and gadgets. These efforts are our ways of alleviating any inconvenience caused by the preventive maintenance work. We thank the Honorable Mayor for his support,” said Roel Castro, President, and CEO of MORE Power, who personally oversees his team on the ground.

In partnership with Federation Fire Iloilo, MORE Power scheduled water delivery to affected barangays from 9:00 AM until power was restored. They also mobilized a roving generator set to strategic areas where affected consumers could charge their devices, such as cellular phones, power banks, and electric fans.

The Barangay Captains of the affected areas deeply appreciated the initiatives undertaken by the power company.
