    Yes good idea, prompted by you Charlie, I have sent an Email to the GM to ask him if he will at least think about this, First though I think he may send out a message using their preferred method first
    I appreciate you don't use Facebook Charlie but it will come up on DI in due course after should he listen to Advice/Requests

    DI uses their Twitter feed. No need for an account with Twitter to view the notices. Or one could just subscribe to the NORECO forum (clicking link will give you option to subscribe to/watch that forum) and get emails with the full attachment provided and skip the social media all together. Although, it probably won't do much good with all these unannounced brownouts due to the earthquake in Leyte.

    New announcements by NORECO do not show up on the "New posts" page. "Watching" that forum is the only way notifications will be sent out unless one of the announcements is shared on the open forum (like this thread was).

    I know....broken record. Just FYI for any new members that missed the original post about the NORECO announcements.

    Nice map. Finally we can check the availabilities of electrical power in Ormoc City.
    Thanks a lot. :smile:

    I thought this might brings things a little closer to closure on this issue
    ***
    National Grid Corporation of the Philippines
    19 hrs


    VISAYAS POWER RESTORATION ADVISORY as of July 17, 2PM

    NGCP continues its Visayas restoration efforts for facilities affected by the July 6 earthquake.

    As of July 17, 3 out of 6 transformers (two 138/69kV and one 230/138kV transformers) are now energized, with Transformer 4 online at 849AM today. The remaining three 230/138kV transformers are still under observation.

    In light of information from test results of Ormoc transformer 6 and additional need for testing and corrective repair, technical experts do not recommend energization on July 19. The new target is set to July 23, still subject to satisfactory test results.

    The islands of Leyte, Samar, Bohol, and Biliran will still continue to experience rotating power interruptions, particularly during peak hours, due to Ormoc Substation transformer limitations.

    NGCP's Ormoc-Tongonan 138kV line has been ready since July 8 to transmit as much as 112MW from Greencore. Greencore committed to supply 40MW out of its 70MW pre-earthquake capacity by July 19.

    Power situation in Cebu, Negros, and Panay will also improve with the synchronization of KSPC after its scheduled maintenance and the increasing generation output of EDC geothermal plants.

    All other parallel strategies, particularly the hauling of transformers from Cebu and reconfiguration of 230kV to 138kV lines, are ongoing and ready for implementation, respectively.***

    I found it interesting that one of the things NORECO used to recommend in their mandatory seminar is turning off the refrigerator for 8 hours overnight. This was translated for me by my ex who attended the seminar. That seems like false economy to me.

    One of the best ways to reduce energy consumption by consumers is for NORECO to buy the most energy efficient air conditioners on the market at wholesale prices and sell/install them for their customers on a lease to own plan. The savings most consumers would have on their electric bill would make the payments. NORECO could make a small profit on the air conditioners and overall electric use would decline as people got rid of those energy sucking, cheap window aircons.

    How would they pay for it? Investors could pay the cost of the units and installation and get a fair rate of interest over the time the units are being paid off.

    Just a thought as I walk down the street and see all those power sucking air cons stressing the system.

    to do away with their energy sucking Air-cons and buy energy friendly Pedestal/Ceiling Fans... Been here 3 years and living at sea level (near to the Malatapay Markets) I have absolutely no need for Air-con and wonder why others even 'need' it here (unless they come from Eskimo country) :tongue:

    Why Brian? it is the smallest of the three Regions and closest and Easiest to obtain Emergency and much need power to some Areas, Seems "Damned if they Do and Damned if they don't"
    BTW I came across this from somewhere earlier and although I don't know if it is 100% correct or how true it is it may be useful to know where we could all maybe save a little Electric;
