·1 min read

THE Visayan Electric Company said it had restored power to 68.37 percent of its 474,182 affected customers in Metro Cebu as 12 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 16, 2022.

This means that 324,216 affected customers have gotten back their supply of electricity.

Visayan Electric still has to restore power supply to its 149,966 customers in the next 15 days before it could reach its target of restoring electricity to 100 percent of its affected customers by January 31.

As of 12 p.m. Sunday, the power distributor had restored electricity in parts of the cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Talisay and Naga, and in the municipalities of San Fernando, Minglanilla, Consolacion and Liloan.

Visayan Electric has been repairing poles and power lines a day after the onslaught of Typhoon Odette (Rai), which devastated central and southern parts of Cebu on Thursday evening, December 16, 2021.

Power distributors from outside Cebu deployed linemen to help Visayan Electric in fast-tracking the power restoration in its franchise area.

Quennie Bronce, Visayan Electric’s reputation manager, said on Saturday, January 15 that they are confident to reach their January 31 target.
