TAGUIG CITY, Nov. 20 — Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi met with officials and board of directors of the National Electrification Administration (NEA) and Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association, Inc. (PHILRECA) yesterday, (November 19) to discuss the recent developments and status of electrification.
“Our battle cry is to provide electricity for all. We have to rush providing electricity. By 2020, all households must have electricity based on the 2015 census,” the Energy Chief emphasized during the meeting.
He also sought for the electric cooperatives’ help and honest efforts to engage the Department with the processes that need to be improved.
Moreover, he urged the cooperation of energy regulatory agencies in coming up with a master plan to be submitted by the end of the month.
To this end, the DOE will create a project management team to be headed by Assistant Secretary Redentor E. Delola and Director Mario M. Marasigan.
The entire energy family is working together to enhance measures on how to make energy services more reliable and sustainable.
