Meco gets needed help to restore power in Mactan

·1 min read

THE Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers (IIEE) of the Philippines Mactan Chapter will offer free inspection and assessment services to households within the Mactan Electric Company (Meco) franchise area.

IIEE Mactan President Joseph Garry Dagpin sent a letter to Meco General Manager Gilbert Pagobo to inform the electric company about the organization's intention to help the re-energization efforts in Mactan Island, which comprises the City of Lapu-Lapu and municipality of Cordova.

Dagpin told SunStar Cebu Wednesday, January 12, 2022, that this will serve as one of their Corporate Social Responsibility programs.

Dagpin said that there are already 12 licensed electrical engineers who have already committed and they are still gathering a pool of licensed electricians to join them.

Since these engineers and electricians have jobs during weekdays, most of their services can be availed by consumers of Meco on weekends, Dagpin said.

Dagpin assured the public that their services are totally free of charge except for wiring and electrical materials that the consumers need to personally purchase.

It is also an advantage if a professional will check the status of the wiring of the house to make sure that it is safe when the electricity will be finally restored, Dagpin said.

The organization vows to continue their services until the status of distribution of electricity in the Island of Mactan returns to normal.

Pagobo previously announced that they are aiming to energize its entire service area before the end of the month.
