abrenian.com received a communication from Willy A. Rodolfo, Manager, Branding and Communications of AboitizPower informing us about the Disconnection of Power Supply in Abra:
Thursday, September 27, 2012
AboitizPower subsidiary AP Renewables Inc. (APRI) announced that it suspended the disconnection of power supply to Abra Electric Cooperative (Abreco), originally scheduled for 12 noon today, Thursday 27 September 2012
APRI started delivering power to Abreco in December 2011. The notice of disconnection was issued September 18 in response to the electric cooperative’s repeated failure to settle their obligations since December to the geothermal-power producer APRI. At the time of the notice, Abreco’s obligations amounted to Php 53 Million broken down into: Php 32 Million Security Deposit and 21 Million of unpaid bills.
“The deferment is due to the timely intercession of Abra Governor Bersamin and Congresswoman Bernos. We are expressing confidence in the local leaders of Abra to help facilitate a fair and reasonable resolution to this issue at the soonest possible time. We believe the local officials and Abreco will continue to put the best interests of the people of Abra in this issue,” APRI Senior Vice President Juan Alfonso said.
“We would also like to thank the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) for their immediate technical support on our decision to defer the disconnection,” Alfonso added.
