Mike Gorriceta mulls cheaper electricity rates in Iloilo
Iloilo Rep. Michael Gorriceta (2nd district) is bringing to Congress the clamor of some local government units in the province to have better power services.
The municipalities of Pavia, Leganes and Dumangas – through their respective Sangguniang Bayans (SB) – have passed resolutions seeking their possible inclusion to the service area of MORE Electric and Power Corp., the power distributor of neighboring Iloilo City.
Pavia and Leganes are served by the Iloilo Electric Cooperative (ILECO) 1 while Dumangas is under ILECO 2. (https://bit.ly/2VOk13E)
The SB of Oton also passed a resolution but they only requested ILECO 1 to reduce its power rate.
Once he receives the respective resolutions of the towns, Gorriceta said he will draft a measure and submit it to the Lower House for review and for House Bill number assignment.
