NGCP, APEC earn praise from Guinobatan, Albay Mayor Ann Gemma Ongjoco


Time to give credit to where credit is due.

Here, Guinobatan, Albay Mayor Ann Gemma Ongjoco gives a shoutout to the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) and Albay Power and Energy Corporation (APEC) for fulfilling their promise in the aftermath of typhoon “Nina”.

“Thank you to NGCP and APEC for making good their promise to energize us today in time for New Year’s Eve. At least the electric service is back in some areas of Guinobatan. Hopefully no more power trips,” wrote the lady politiko on her Facebook.

Nina, which packed winds of over 215 kilometers per hour, caused massive damage to power lines in Albay over a week ago. Authorities said it may take until the second week of January for the province to be fully re-energized.
