Datu Yap bans AKELCO brownouts over the holidays
The Aklan Electric Cooperative better shape up, or else.
Board Member Datu Yap of Malay, Aklan and fellow politikos gave a stern warning to the local utility provider, telling them not to be a grinch this Christmas.
To make the threat real, Yap and the Municipal Council had to pass a resolution so that there’s paper trail for AKELCO. The instruction is pretty simple: the power distributor must stop any of its scheduled power disconnections in the tourist spot over the holidays “to give consideration to our families and businesses during this time.”
Boracay is just recovering from the COVID-19 lockdowns, and brownouts would definitely spoil the fun for tourists out for a good time.
