NO BUSINESS PERMIT: City gov’t to auction P90-M PECO assets

first_imgThe ERC asked the Bureau of FireProtection (BFP) to provide a report on incidents of safety violation becauseof PECO’s electricity pole fires. These resulted to the nonrenewal ofPECO’s permit this year, said Treñas. ILOILO City – The city government willbe holding a public auction for P90-million worth of assets of Panay ElectricCo. (PECO) on Dec. 12. According to Mayor Jerry Treñas, this is the citygovernment’s legal step against the power distributor for refusing to pay longoverdue real property taxes. Aside from the ERC, Treñas also askedthe Presidential Complaint Center to conduct an investigation. Currently, a group from the ERC isinspecting dilapidated distribution lines of PECO and verify Treñas’complaint./PN The Iloilo City Fire Marshal and BFPreported that in three days alone from Oct. 19 to 21, seven PECO electricitypoles caught fire either due to exploding transformers or severed transmissionlines. These dangling electricity meters of Panay Electric Co. in Iloilo City are in danger of falling. Mayor Jerry Treñas says the safety of the people of Iloilo City is paramount. Norman Tabud, head of the BusinessPermits and Licensing Office, confirmed his office has yet to issue PECO abusiness license to operate for 2019. “Only electricity wires, eitherdamaged or overloaded, can cause fire, not telephone or cable televisionwires,” BFP told ERC during a recent hearing.   The unpaid real property taxes go backto two past city administrations, said Treñas. Multiple demands for paymentwere made but these went unheeded.center_img TREÑASENRAGED PECO is operating in the city only byvirtue of a CPCN. Its franchise expired on Jan. 19, 2019 yet. An average of 28 pole fires take placein Iloilo City every month, or almost 300 incidents every year, according tothe BFP. The safety and security of the peopleof Iloilo City and the damage to government property are not small matters, hestressed in an interview over DyFM Bombo Radyo Iloilo. “PECO applied for a business licensebut we deferred the issuance pending the recommendation from the CityTreasurer’s Office,” said Tabud. PECO is under investigation by theEnergy Regulatory Commission (ERC) following Treñas’ complaint over risingincidents of electricity pole files due to ageing and overloaded transformers. According to Treñas, he also gotenraged by the statement of Marcelo Cacho, administrative manager of PECO who shruggedoff incidents of post fires throughout the city. Under ERC Resolution No. 5, Series of2008, any power distribution utility granted a Certificate of PublicConvenience and Necessity (CPCN) to operate a distribution system in any areamust comply with standards set under the Philippine Distribution Code,especially those that concern public safety.last_img read more
