Lacson Seeks Closer Look at Rural Electrification Picture

While the Department of Energy claims 100 percent of the countryโ€™s barangays now have electricity, it does not automatically mean the agencyโ€™s electrification efforts have been completed.

On this note, Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson sought a closer look into the governmentโ€™s rural electrification program, after learning that many sitios โ€“ enclaves far from the barangay centers โ€“ still do not have power.

โ€œSitios are a part of barangays. We cannot say barangays are 100 percent powered if a few sitios in those barangays still have no power,โ€ Lacson said at a Commission on Appointments hearing for Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.

Ping: Hindi Porkeโ€™t 100 percent ‘Electrified’ ay Ayos Na

Hindi kasiguraduhan na ganap nang tapos ang pagpapailaw ng mga barangay ng Department of Energy, kahit sabihin nito na 100 porsiyento ng mga barangay ang may kuryente na.

Ito ang nabatid ng mga mambabatas na miyembro ng makapangyarihang Commission on Appointments sa pagtatanong ni Sen. Panfilo Lacson kay DOE Sec. Alfonso Cusi na sumalang sa kumpirmasyon.

Tinanong ni Lacson ang kalihim kung ilang porsiyento na ng mga barangay sa bansa ang napapailawan ng DOE, base sa datus na nakuha ng mambabatas na dapat noon pang 2008 ay nakumpleto na ito.
