By Roi Lomotan

The Negros Oriental Electric Cooperative (NORECO-I) is appealing for cooperation from member-consumers as the electric cooperative implements measures to reduce its high systems loss.

NORECO-I General Manager Jose Juvileo Acabal reported that the electric cooperative is alarmed after the percentage of their systems loss reached 13%. The said figure is the same with the rate set by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) as limit for systems loss in every electric cooperative. Acabal said even though the number is still within the limit set by the ERC, the electric cooperative aims to lower the systems loss rate to 11% by the end of the year. To resolve this, the electric cooperative has started to conduct clearing operations and thermal scanning in their coverage areas. He appealed to homeowners to allow their linemen to trim branches of their trees that seen to hang or mingle with electric wires or beside electric posts and transformers.
