Iloilo City councilor not in favor of Peco franchise renewal

0 176

Councilor Joshua Alim has repeatedly expressed opposition to the renewal of Panay Electric Company Inc.’s (Peco) 25-year franchise.

Alim, who is a lawyer, has initiated a petition blocking the electric firm’s franchise renewal.

Peco, Iloilo City’s sole power distributor, is serving at least 20,000 clients.

The non-renewal of Peco franchise, expiring in 2019, will not disrupt electric supply and impact business in the city, said the Ilonggo politiko.
