NEA accolades motivate coop power in Leyte
The Leyte II Electric Cooperative (Leyeco II), which won seven prizes, has been motivated to enhance its offerings to residents of this city and the adjacent villages.
According to Leyeco II general manager Fernan Paul Tan, the cooperative was named the best energy distributor in the Eastern Visayas region after receiving seven accolades from the National Electrification Administration (NEA).
In a phone conversation, Tan noted that the recognitions “are a testament to the electric cooperative’s tireless efforts in attempting to serve the members as well as a reminder to always aim higher.”
Leyeco II won the Most Outstanding Electric Cooperative Award for effectively completing the Rural Electrification Program’s mandate and achieving a “AAA” grade in the 2021 Overall Performance Assessment.
The finest electric cooperative in the area also received an award for its assistance in maintaining the “AAA” rating for all electric cooperatives (ECs) in the area over the previous two years.
Each year, the NEA assesses all ECs and establishes their overall performance ratings. Financial (25 points), institutional (30 points), technical (20 points), electrification level (20 points), and reportorial compliance make up the set of criteria (five points).
The highest rating provided by the NEA to ECs, “AAA,” denotes complete compliance with all criteria on the part of the electricity distribution utility. The lowest grade is a D.
Leyeco II has received the compact of cooperation award for its assistance in helping other cooperatives recover from the onslaught of natural disasters.
Leyeco II was also recognized for its continued dedication and work to advance the interests of its customers through the rural electrification program.
Tan continued, “We are also renowned as Sunshine Electric Cooperative for our steadfast persistence to achieve 100% consumer connections, so improving the socio-economic situation of the people in the rural, and deliver power to a wider population within our coverage area.
Leyeco II received the title of a consistent green electric cooperative in recognition of its continued adherence to the requirements established by NEA.
Tan and Dalmacio Grafil, a director on the board of Leyeco II, were presented with the honor on July 29 at a ceremony held at the NEA facility in Quezon City.
According to Grafil, “the single-digit systems loss of the year helped to increase the cooperative’s electric distribution system efficiency and reduce the power rate.”
More over 90,000 members of Leyeco II reside in this city and the surrounding Leyte provincial villages of Palo and Babatngon.
