NEA POWER TASK FORCE ELECTION ALL SET FOR MAY 9

The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Resolution No. 10743 dated 16 December 2021 deputized, among others, the National Electrification Administration (NEA) for the purpose of enduring free, orderly, honest, peaceful and credible conduct of the 9 May 2022 national and local elections.

NEA is commissioned to provide and maintain stable and continuous nationwide electric power requirements through the electric cooperatives (ECs) from the start of voting, until the termination or conclusion of the canvassing of votes and the proclamation of the winning candidates.

The NEA has been coordinating with all 121 Electric Cooperatives (ECs) across the country to prepare for the upcoming national and local elections.

In compliance, the NEA Power Task Force Election was created through Office Order No. 2022-036 issued by Administrator Emmanuel P. Juaneza on 2 March 2022.

Factoring in members supplemented through Office Order No. 2022-070 issued on 24 March 2022, the task force is composed of Engineering Department (ED), Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Department (DRRMD), Total Electrification and Renewable Energy Development Department (TEREDD), Human Resources and Administration Department (HRAD), Corporate Communications and Social Marketing Office (CCSMO), Information Technology and Communication Services Department (ITCSD), Institutional Development Department (IDD) and Finance Services Department (FSD).

The NEA has been coordinating with all 121 Electric Cooperatives (ECs) across the country to prepare for the upcoming national and local elections.

As advised by Administrator Juaneza, the ECs conducted preventive and corrective maintenance of their facilities punctuating their final preparations.

To test the accuracy and efficiency of the power monitoring reporting system, and to ensure the smooth flow of communication between the NEA and the ECs, a dry run was conducted last 2 May 2022.

The ECs are directed to activate their Emergency Restoration Organization (ERO) on 5 May 2022. On the same day at 7:00 am, they shall start the 24-hour Power Situation Monitoring continuing until 12 May 2022 or until the termination or conclusion of the canvassing of votes and proclamation of winning candidates.

With or without power interruptions, the ECs are to submit reports to the respective NEA Power Task Force Election 2022 Power Situation Monitoring Teams twice daily. Major incidents of power interruptions shall be reported immediately and shall be then included in the periodic reporting.
