DUMAGUETE CITY – Noreco 2: Please explain in layman’s words your electric rate increase and movement.
You should have so many and enough personnel who can speak the language of the ordinary consumer. Please make them understand your basis of electric rate increase.
Better still hold a press conference or a public forum to explain these technical lingo so that the ordinary consumer may be inlightened and learn how to economize and safeguard the use of electricity.

If the cooperative got a discount from NEA then it should also pass on these discounts to the consuemrs who were actually the ones who paid promptly.
Moreover, the cooperative received the 3.2% Prompt Payment Discount (PPD) given by Green Core Geothermal, Inc. (GCGI) to its clients who pay their power bills promptly.
