Sitios in Itogon, Benguet to be energized
Itogon hosts Binga dam, one of the dams that feed the Northern Luzon power grid.
The provincial board finds the request acceptable, which reads, “Resolution requesting the management of Benguet Electric Cooperative, through Atty. Jerry Marave, to prioritize the electrification of the unenergized sitios and boundaries of Barangay Loacan and Barangay Tinongdan.”
The provincial board earlier endorsed resolutions requesting the Department of Energy (DOE) for the electrification of these sitios.
In a letter to the provincial board, The DOE informed that they have already forwarded the board’s letter to the National Electrification Administration on the said endorsement for their appropriate action. (SCA-PIA CAR, Benguet)
