“Power interruptions experienced in Boracay are very inconvenient.”

This is only one of the few complaints lifted by stakeholders in the island in line with the frequent brown outs.

For this reason, the Boracay Foundation Incorporated (BFI) will set a meeting with the Officials of AKLECO on May 10 in order to further explain power interruptions matters to the stakeholders.

According to BFI Executive Director Ms. Pia Miraflores, many resort owners and stakeholders are complaining because of the damages on their generator sets and other electrical appliances brought about by the interruptions.

Aside from this, guests are also annoyed about the fluctuating power supply.

Meanwhile, AKELCO has previously issued a notice explaining that the power interruptions are due to low voltage and manual load dropping.

This is also a result of the continued repair of the NGCP 69KV connection to the 50MVA in Panit-an, Capiz which is also connected to the Nabas sub-station where AKELCO is obtaining its supply from.

In line with this, AKELCO encourages its consumers to be wise enough in using electricity.
