ILIGAN CITY (PIA)–To provide safe and reliable electricity to even the most remote areas of this city, Iligan Light and Power Inc. (ILPI) has initiated a program to energize power lines in Purok 10, Barangay Bunawan.

Key persons and personnel of ILPI joined the community in marking the launch of the energization.

“Kini nga program, isip kini sa pagpakita sa katawhan dinhi sa Iligan labi na sa hinterlands nga si Iligan Light, nagtinguha jud nga makahtag ug suga ug kuryente diri sa mga hilit nga lugar [This program is a way of showing the people here in Iligan, especially in the hinterlands, that Iligan Light is truly striving to bring light and electricity to these remote areas],” said Jeffre Opema, operations unit manager and spokesperson of ILPI.

Meanwhile, Milagros T. Cantiveros, a resident, is happy with the program, as they have long awaited a safer and more dependable electricity supply.

Prior to this initiative, the area faced numerous challenges related to its electrical infrastructure. The power lines were dangerously intertwined with trees. With the program, a transformer and new utility poles have been set up to ensure the safety and efficiency of the electrical distribution system.

The project has also opened up the possibility for more residents to access electricity in the future. In total, there are 10 prospective applicants for new power connections, and as the program continues to expand, it is expected that more households will benefit from this endeavor.

ILPI also organized a brief orientation session outlining the process for applying for household electricity connections. Additionally, ILPI took steps to enhance residents’ awareness of essential safety guidelines and regulations, aimed at safeguarding the community and deterring unlawful activities such as unauthorized electricity hookups.
