Sto. Domingo, Albay, [06.17.18] – The management of Albay Power Energy Corporation [APEC] is neither interested in facing complaints of the member-consumers of electricity, nor they are afraid of tackling the issues about the people’s lament on their unmet quality services to the people of Sto. Domingo, Albay as no representative had showed in the public forum on Saturday.
“Sayang, maray na opurtunidad kuta na madangog an saindang lado, mapa dapit sa saindang simbag sa daing untok na brown-out, alagad dai sinda nag abot” It’s regrettable of losing the opportunity to hear their side on the incessant brownouts, but, they never arrived, Mayor Herbie Aguas told the www.philexaminer.com on Saturday.
Mayor Aguas stressed that he has called on the management of APEC to fix their poor services in Sto. Domingo as my constituents are suffering the brunt of the unreliable power supply and the inefficient services.
These problems is no longer felt here in our town, but in the entire province – as their services is not getting better anymore, its getting worst and we have to do something, Aguas explained.
But a top official of APEC had informed me by a phone call that they are not coming in the forum, the Mayor quipped.
The pestering power outages hitting the town of Sto. Domingo has reached the saturation point of customer’s patience as the sudden brownout and the low voltage is wrecking electric home appliances and sleepless nights.
According to one consumer, Mr. Roger Breta, in the entire month of May of this year – Sto. Domingo, Albay was hit by 42 unannounced brown outs, not mentioning the low voltage and fluctuations..
Meanwhile, Aguas revealed in the same interview that he was obliged to send a formal letter to the Office of the President seeking presidential intervention on the poor services of the Albay Power Electric Corporation to the Albayanos.
I am still awaiting for the President’ reply on my letter, Aguas ended.
Sto. Domingo residents who attended the forum are demanding efficient services from APEC and insisting actions from local elected officials in Albay to judiciously act on the pestering inefficient services of APEC.
Ramon Ll. Valera, a retiree from San Roque Street, Sto. Domingo, Albay is calling for the expulsion of APEC and he tagged the management as an immorally-cultured corporation who does not understand the running power distribution utility sector.
While, Mrs. Glenda B. Collantes, a resident of San Rafael, Street Sto. Domingo, Albay has expressed dissatisfaction over unannounced brownouts and low voltage.
If they can not provide efficient and reliable services to us, APEC must go Collantes said.
