The Aklan Electric Cooperative (AKELCO) again explains to the public the reasons behind the power interruptions in Boracay.
According to AKELCO Boracay Area Engr. Wayne Bucala, they have on-going and programmed transfers of posts and electric line repairs in the island which they carry out one at a time at the moment.
In line with this, AKELCO encourages its consumers to be thrifty in using electricity.
This followed after their appeal to malls, banks, and other big establishments to limit their use of aircon, refrigerator, and other appliances which consumes so much energy to avoid Global Business Power Corporation (GBPC) Power Plant trip off.
The cooperative is now implementing a manual load dropping of power supplies from Nabas (Aklan) by the GBPC.
AKELCO added that the GBPC’s supply has been limited since the restoration of power in some parts of Boracay.
Akelco also clarified that it is not them, but the GBPC that schedules the power shut down.
With this, AKELCO apologizes to the public and is trying to find solution to the power interruptions experienced in Boracay.
