Pavia residents are anticipating the start of the operation More Electric and Power Corporation (MORE Power) in the Province of Iloilo.
Iloilo 2nd District Representative Mike Gorriceta confirms the excitement of the People of Pavia and the second district upon seeing MORE Power personnel laying out the electric posts in the said town.
“Well in fact pagkita namon poste naga layout na people were excited especially ang atun mga dalagku na mga investors and at the same time even mga households excited na sila kay ti knowing ang MORE Power kag makita man nila nga kung may nagakay-o sang poste, may ara gid nagabantay sa idalum. May ara gid naga uniform kag naka gear gid mga tawo. It simply shows how serious ang company sa trabaho,” says Cong. Mike Gorriceta.
Recently, Cong. Gorriceta paid a visit to the facilities of MORE Power to personally check the company’s daily operations, modern substation, and how they handle customer service complaints and concerns.
“Impressed gid ako kay nakita ko gid nga serious and determined gid ang MORE Power to invest which is indi lango-lango,” says ni Cong. Gorriceta.
Cong. Gorriceta is the author of House Bill 10306, which sought Congress to expand MORE Power in several municipalities in the Province of Iloilo. It is now known as the Republic Act 11918.
Roel Z. Castro, MORE Power President and CEO, said in a separate interview that they are still waiting of the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) which is yet to be issued by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC).
While it is still pending, the distribution utility has started rolling out primary lines in some municipalities in the second district.
“We’re already entering San Miguel, Pavia nandiyan na rin, para once ma approved ang CPCN, the construction of the secondary lines will not take that long anymore so that we could start serving the consumers,” Castro said.
