Power interruptions in Iloilo: Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas urges Ilonggos to be patient during power interruptions. This, as More Electric and Power Corporation (More Power Iloilo) continues to conduct maintenance activities to prevent any unscheduled interruption in the future.
In a social media post, Treñas lauded the hardworking personnel of More Power Iloilo and their efforts in improving the electrical status of Iloilo City. He also stressed that he has never seen so many people working along power lines.
“Yesterday, along Mac Arthur Drive Jaro, I saw more than 10 trucks with booms for employees of More Power fixing the wires along the high poles. I have never seen so many people working along the power lines of Iloilo City since I was in public service,” begins Treñas in a social media post shared on the Iloilo City Government social media page.
Treñas also reminds the public to be patient during power outages.
“Even if we continue to have power interruptions from time to time, let us be patient enough that More Power continues to improve our power distribution system as there is still a lot to be done. Let us all work together as we work to level up Iloilo City,” adds Treñas.
In April alone, there have been a number of unscheduled and scheduled power interruptions – including two scheduled power interruptions as requested by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines. Most maintenance works during scheduled power interruptions include replacement of dilapidated, rotten poles and cross arms.
More Power has been transparent in their efforts as evidenced on their social media channels.
With the support of the local government, More Power continues its efforts in improving the power distribution in the city. Here, More Power President and COO Roel Castro thanks the city government.
“All the officers and staff of MORE Power join me in thanking Mayor Jerry Treñas for his kind note regarding our current efforts in fixing all the problematic areas under our area of distribution which are often the cause of power interruptions in the city of Iloilo. We are pleased to read his kind words and it made us happy all the more as these efforts are being appreciated by no less than the chief executive of our city, or by someone all too familiar with the power situation in this part of the country,” says Castro.
“We assure all our consumers that what we are experiencing right now are part of an effort to change for the better, and towards the modernization of all our distribution facilities which we have vowed to undertake since Day 1. All we need is your continued understanding as we work together to level up our beloved city in partnership with the city government of Iloilo,” he adds.
