We have confirmed reports from our ground troops in Abra that the power has been restored after more than a day of interruption.
It is not clear what has transpired for Aboitiz to restore its service. There were talks that no less than Pres. Aquino intervened in behalf of the Abrenians.
At this point who cares. Power has been restored and Abrenians can ease up a little. But with the reported more than P50 Million debt from Aboitiz and more than P350 Million from NAPOCOR, everyone wonders, What now? Will this happen again?
Your guess is as good as mine. For Now Abrenians take a breather!
Update: We got hold of the official statement from Aboitiz Power.
AP received at 1:04 p.m. today (Dec.11). APRI will resume the supply of power to ABRECO after the latter settled their pending obligations. ABRECO also committed to pay in full on or before Dec. 24, 2012 their current bill as well as process their WESM membership. APRI has notified NGCP to reconnect at the soonest time today.
