Meralco, along with its social development arm One Meralco Foundation (OMF), joined the Power Restoration Rapid Deployment (PRRD) Task Force Kapatid 2020 early morning of November 7 to help expedite the restoration of electricity service in areas severely battered by super typhoon Rolly.
Meralco deployed a 206-strong contingent of engineers, linemen, and support personnel to help in the power restoration in Albay, Catanduanes, and parts of Camarines Sur. 65 of them will be helping the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) in its restoration efforts in Bicol.
Meralco and One Meralco Foundation (OMF) joined the Power Restoration Rapid Deployment (PRRD) Task Force Kapatid 2020 to restore electricity to areas severly hit by typhoon Rolly.
Meralco is closely coordinating with the Department of Energy (DOE), National Electrification Administration (NEA), Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association Inc. (Philreca), and the Electric Cooperatives in Bicol.
The country’s largest power utility also dispatched personnel in areas affected by typhoon Ulysses, which made landfall in Quezon on Wednesday, November 11. “We are exerting all efforts to restore power soonest despite the constraints we are currently facing,” said Meralco spokesperson Joe Zaldarriaga in an interview with Manila Bulletin.
“Meralco will continue to conduct restoration efforts round-the-clock in order to address each and every customer who still have no power supply,” he added.
