ERC defers charging
add-on to power rate

The president of Central Negros Electric Cooperative is requesting the Ceneco management to refund the consumers the P0.2220 per kilowatt hour in their October billing after the Energy Regulatory Commission issued an order deferring its implementation.

Roy Cordova yesterday said the P0.222/kWh was implemented in October based on the order of ERC dated June 20. However, on Oct. 19, ERC issued another order deferring its implementation.

He said he wrote Ceneco general manager SulpicioLagarde Jr. on Oct.30 asking him to implement the Oct. 19 ERC order deferring the implementation of the P0.222/kWh and to refund the consumers the amount.

6 awardees

The six Outstanding Negrosanons honored by the Negros Occidental provincial government last night are people who have worked to make a difference in the lives of others, and in the service of Negros and the country, Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said.

Marañon and Vice Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson, at Cinco de Noviembre rites at the provincial Capitol Social Hall last night, handed awards to Joey and Christina Gaston for Entrepreneurship and Livelihood Promotion, Local Government Undersecretary Austere Panadero for Government Service, Antonio Meloto for Civic and Humanitarian Works, Ramon Hofileña for Culture and Arts, and Margarita Araneta Forés for Culinary Tourism. moremoremore

P35 billion infra projects
endorsed for funding: exec

Infrastructure development projects worth P35 billion for the two Negros provinces have been endorsed to the regional offices of the national government agencies for inclusion in their expenditures.
