Electrification project for new Basilan town.

August 26, 2010, 3:09pm

TABUAN LASA, Basilan (PNA) – The more than 25,000 residents of this newly-created municipality will soon have electricity.

This developed after the Department of Energy (DoE), through the Basilan Electric Cooperative (Baselco), started the implementation of a P9.2 million electrification project here.

“The DoE has contracted Baselco to undertake the electrification project, being the sole electric distributor of the province,” Mayor Muctar Junaid said.

The electrification project is scheduled to be completed within a 90-day period, according to the local chief executive of this town.

It was learned that Baselco personnel are already installing the transmission cables as they have completed erecting all the wooden transmission line posts.

Junaid said this town will have its own power plant, citing that the electrification project includes the purchase and installation of diesel-fired power generating sets.

Once completed, Junaid said the project will be of big help to the residents of this town which has been relying on solar electricity and gas lamps to have light at night for the past several years.

Junaid said the electrification of the town is expected to boost business activities, especially of marine products.

This town was created by virtue of Muslim Mindanao Autonomy Act No. 187, which was subsequently ratified in a plebiscite held on March 29, 2008.

Tabuan Lasa, which has 12 villages, was a part of Sumisip town before it was created into a municipality.
