The four Negrense Kadiwa markets in Bacolod City have generated P3.9 million in sales, Provincial Agriculturist Japhet Masculino said yesterday.

The Negrense Kadiwa market initiative kicked off on April 1 to capacitate food producers and consumers amid the stringent quarantine measures implemented to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The first Kadiwa market operated at the Negros Food Terminal, and catered to online service delivery through rider companies. Other outlets are in Ayala Malls Capitol Central, Barangay Alijis, and at Petron Redemptorist.

Ceneco Silay transformer to be energized

The Central Negros Electric Cooperative Inc. is still waiting for the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines to approve its documentary requirements to energize the newly-installed 10 mega-volt-ampere (MVA) power transformer at its Lopez substation in Silay City.

Maria Agnes Claro, officer-in-charge of the Office of the General Manager, in a statement, said the power utility firm has to replace the busted 5MVA power transformer, which tripped off due to exposure to a variety of electrical, mechanical and thermal stresses.

This is to address the power reliability and loading capacity issues at Silay City, which caused several power interruptions since August 2, she added.
