With the onset of La Niña, NOCECO's distribution system is up
against the harsh elements. As trees grow fast and taller they again become
a source of possible power interruptions when they touch our lines. Rainy
season is also a time of brownouts but we are glad that our cooperative
is always on guard to prevent these service problems and always ready to
restore power to consumers who expect nothing less than reliable service.
In anticipation of the wet season, there have already been preventive
measures done by our line workers. They have already securely anchored
some of the poles located in open spaces and exposed to strong winds. Old
poles have been replaced, trees near the lines were trimmed and lines were
cleared of kite strings and foreign objects.
Actually, work to be done never cease in our coop. But what is important
is realizing of a problems, asses the problem, take stock of the real situation
and solving the root cause of the problem.
We are proud that NOCECO is extra careful not to be caught flat-footed
by any problem. The coop beleives that the best PR is still good service.
We salute our technical men, who have acquired valuable skills on the
job and know our system like that back of their hand. We will survive the
La Niña, won't we?
