Good deal

Noreco 2’s signing up with Green Core Geothermal Inc. for a 25 MW power supply over the next 10 years starting Dec. 26 is good news for electric consumers in Negros Oriental.

For too long, we had to contend with low voltage and insufficient power because of the unstable supply from Napocor’s geothermal plant in Leyte, which needs an overhaul. These problems resulted from having to transport the power over long distances.

The Green Core deal would mean that we get our power from our backyard, so to speak, and thus we should have lower systems losses, more stable power supply and a rate that is even cheaper than what some electric cooperatives in other parts of the Visayas are getting from coal plants.

Of course, Noreco 2 has its own problems and brownouts caused by falling branches and the like, may still be experienced here. As Noreco 2 Chairman James Fontelo explained, many people get angry at the Noreco 2 clearing teams who cut branches of trees that endanger the power lines. And in that respect, we get the kind of service that we probably deserve.

But by and large, we hope we can reduce power interruptions to a minimum. We hope our appliances would no longer get destroyed by insufficient voltage. We hope our new year will be bright. That’s not wishing too much, is it?
