Micro-grid electricity project for remote areas in Zambales inaugurated

SAN MARCELINO, Zambales: The National Electrification Administration (NEA) sees mini-grid systems as viable option to power remote communities across the country, particularly those located far away from the electricity grid.

NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong made the statement at the inauguration ceremony of the "Brighten Up" project donated by the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) to the Zambales II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ZAMECO II) that will benefit Baliwet communities in San Marcelino.

"The conventional rural electrification approach of grid connection may no longer be the best path to achieve universal access to electricity since we are now addressing the last mile of household electrification," Masongsong said.

"Mini-grids, hybrids and solar home systems now play important roles in electrifying far-flung communities isolated from the grid," the NEA chief added.

Based on 2015 census of 15,416,144 potential households in the country, the NEA, in partnership with 121 electric cooperatives, has already energized 85 percent or 13,027,402 as of April 2019.

The agency aims to bring that to 100 percent by 2022 but the archipelagic characteristic of the country poses the biggest challenge to the rural electrification program, aside from the funding requirements, the NEA chief said.

To overcome this, the NEA is looking into potential solutions for communities without grid access that are "flexible, resilient, stable and reliable electricity supply for lighting and income-generating activities at an affordable cost to foster sustainable socio-economic development."

"The remoteness of many areas, especially uplands and small islands, makes it impossible for all potential consumers to be connected to the main electricity grid," Masongsong said.

The inauguration ceremony of the "Brighten Up" project held at Baliwet Elementary School on Thursday, June 27, was followed by a signing of project transfer agreement among NEA, SGCC and ZAMECO II. The signatories were Administrator Masongsong, SGCC Philippines chief representative Shan Shewu, and ZAMECO II Board vice president Luther Agasa.

According to SGCC, the "Brighten Up" project is part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the country, the construction of which began in January this year and completed in May.

The project involves solar micro-grid system to provide power supply with a generation capacity of 76 kWp Solar PV and a battery storage capacity of 414 kWh. It covers the communities of Old and New Baliwet in Barangay Sta. Fe, San Marcelino, Zambales.

"We look forward with enthusiasm that this project will soon provide a better life for the people of New Baliwet and Old Baliwet," the NEA administrator said.

ZAMECO II General Manager Alvin Farrales said the project is expected to cater the power needs of 1,900 residents in Old and New Baliwet. The electric cooperative is planning to create a Barangay Power Association (BAPA) to manage and operate the collection and maintenance of the solar project, he said.

Joining Administrator Masongsong at the project inauguration was Engr. Ernesto Silvano, Jr., acting department manager of the NEA Total Electrification and Renewable Energy Development.

Also present were Undersecretary Benito Ranque and Director Mario Marasigan from the Department of Energy, officials from SGCC and National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP), ZAMECO II and local government, among others. ###

Preparations for NEA's golden anniversary on track

Preparations to mark the 50th founding anniversary of the National Electrification Administration (NEA) are well underway, with a series of activities and events for its stakeholders to commemorate the significant event.

Carrying the theme "[email protected]: One with ECs and MCOs for Sustainable Rural Development," this year's celebration will highlight the NEA and Electric Cooperatives' milestones, including the symbolic switch-on of the 13 millionth consumer connection.

"This is an opportune time for us to celebrate the gains of Rural Electrification. The success of the Program has been made possible not only with NEA spearheading the electrification efforts of the national government but especially so with the solid partnership of the Electric Cooperatives (ECs) all over the country as our implementing arm, together with the ECs' Member-Consumer-Owners (MCOs)" said Vicar Loureen Lofranco, the NEA Deputy Administrator for Electric Cooperatives Management Services.

"The road to sustainable rural development has been paved through rural electrification. We need to reinforce the strategic partnership of the NEA-ECs-MCOs in attaining the shared goal for an improved life of our Filipino people, especially in the rural communities," she added.

Taking center stage at the month-long celebration will be the three-day convention to be held at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City from August 6 to 8 tagged as NEA-ECs-MCOs Convention on Rural Electrification.

In this convention, the NEA will feature the hurdles and success stories in the implementation of the Rural Electrification Program (REP) since its establishment in 1969.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is expected to deliver his Keynote Speech in the Opening Program and witness the unveiling of the NEA 50th Anniversary commemorative stamp and the ceremonial switch-on of the milestone 13 millionth consumer connection.

The convention is expected to gather over 1,500 participants from the electrification sector, including key officials from the government, ECs, EC Allied organizations, as well as representatives from MCOs.

Other activities lined up to highlight the celebration include Himig RE (song-writing contest), Kuwentong Dagitab (video documentary), Golden Strokes (painting), and Clicks of Gold (photography) competitions.

The agency's Golden Anniversary also coincides with the 10th National Electrification Awareness Month (NEAM), which is celebrated annually every month of August pursuant to Proclamation Order No. 1743. The celebration will be concluded with a nationwide tree-planting and line clearing activities to be simultaneously carried out by all ECs supervised by the NEA on August 30.

Created as an institution in 1969 through Republic Act No. 6038, the NEA is mandated to carry out the total electrification of the country on an area coverage basis.

Since then, the electrification agency, in partnership with the 121 ECs across the country, has come a long way in bringing the nation's rural and remote areas out of darkness.

For the past five decades, all the 90 cities and 1,385 municipalities covering 78 provinces in the country have been electrified by the NEA and the ECs, being the implementing arm of the government.

Moreover, a total of 36,057 of the 36,065 or 99 percent of the barangays nationwide have been energized.

Based on 2015 census of 15,416,144 potential households, 85 percent or 13,027,402, which translate into nearly 61 million Filipinos in the countryside are enjoying the benefits of electricity. ###

NEA receives highest audit rating from COA anew

The Commission on Audit (COA) has declared the National Electrification Administration (NEA) as compliant with government transparency standards in its operations and financial management.

According to the latest COA Independent Auditor's Report (IAR), the NEA received an unmodified opinion on the fairness of presentation of its financial statements as of December 31, 2018.

This means that the NEA's financial performance and its cash flows for 2018 adhere to generally accepted auditing principles. An "unmodified opinion" is considered the highest audit rating COA gives to government agencies.

“In our opinion, the accompanying financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the NEA as of December 31, 2018, and its financial performance and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Philippine Public Sector Accounting Standards,” the IAR stated.

The IAR covered the NEA’s financial statements for 2018, which comprise the financial position, financial performance, statement of changes in net assets/equity, cash flows, and comparison of budget and actual amounts for the year then ended.

The report was signed by Supervising Auditor Glorina Suson.

"Receiving another unmodified opinion from COA validates the NEA's commitment to ensure transparency and accountability in all our transactions and dealings, and that the taxpayers' money is spent for its intended purposes," NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said.

For 2018, the NEA registered a total assets of P20.489 billion, and total liabilities and equity of P20.489 billion. The agency has received unmodified/unqualified audit opinion from state auditors for 12 consecutive years. ###

NEA, ECs hit another milestone in rural electrification drive

As its golden anniversary approaches, the National Electrification Administration (NEA) has reached yet another significant milestone in its rural electrification drive.

The agency, in partnership with all the electric cooperatives (ECs), has achieved the 13 millionth consumer connection based on the April data submitted to the NEA Information Technology and Communication Services Department (ITCSD).

NEA Administrator Edgardo Masongsong said this milestone is a concrete manifestation of the strong commitment of the agency and the 121 ECs to spur social and economic development in the countryside through electrification.

Data showed that based on 2015 census, the percentage of energization rose from 80 percent in June 2016 to 91 percent in April 2019. This means an average of 275,238 new connections or an increase of 2 percent per semester were registered.

This coming August, the NEA will mark its 50th founding anniversary anchored on the theme "[email protected]: One with ECs and MCOs for Sustainable Rural Development."

A series of month-long activities will be held to showcase the significant milestones of the NEA and ECs in its continuing efforts to uplift the lives of the Filipinos in the countryside through rural electrification.
