HOUSE APPROVES POWER BLOC’S LIFELINE SUBSIDY AND MICROGRID BILLS

Isang malaking tagumpay ang nakamit ng Power Bloc matapos aprubahan ngayon sa ikatlo at huling pagbasa sa Kongreso ang dalawang panukalang batas na naglalayong paunlarin ang antas ng pagpapailaw sa kanayunan. Kabilang dito ang HB 8145 o An Act Extending the Implementation of the Lifeline Rate at HB 8203 o An Act Promoting the Use of Microgrid Systems to Accelerate the Total Electrification of Unserved and Underserved Areas Nationwide.

Ang HB 8145 ay panukalang-batas na isinumite ng mga representante mula sa Power Bloc upang mapalawig pa ang implementasyon ng Lifeline Rate. Ang Lifeline Rate ay isang subsidiyang ibinibigay sa mga marginalized o low income consumers na nahihirapan o walang kakayahang magbayad ng kuryente sa buong presyo nito.

Unang tinawag na HB 7059, isinumite ito noong Hulyo 2020 upang tumugon sa nalalapit na pagkapaso ng bisa ng Lifeline Rate Subsidy sa taong 2021. Matapos ang mga committee at plenary deliberation, ito ay inamyendahan ng mga mambabatas sa Kongreso at tinawag na HB8145. Ang pangunahing layunin ng panukalang ito ay ang pagpapalawig ng implementasyon ng lifeline rate subsidy ng karagdagang sampung taon o hanggang sa taong 2031.

Sa pamamagitan ng panukalang na ito, inaasahan na makakatulong ang lifeline rate sa ating mga kababayang nangangailangan ng interbensyon ng gobyerno upang matustusan ang araw-araw na bayarin.

Ang HB 8203 naman ay nagtataguyod ng pagkakaroon ng Microgrid Systems sa mga lugar na hindi lubusang naaabot ng linya ng kuryente. Ang Microgrid System ay ang pagsasama-sama ng iba’t ibang pinagkukunan ng kuryente at magkakakabit na ‘loads’ sa isang grupo na tumatakbo bilang isang yunit na namamahala sa distribution at subtransmission sa mga lugar na nangangailangan ng kuryente. Maaari itong kumunekta at kumalag sa main grid upang mapaandar ng nakakabit o sa sariling enerhiya.

Katuwang ng Power Bloc sa adhikaing ito ang mga rural electric cooperatives, lalung-lalo na ang mga nasa Small Power Utilities Group (SPUG) Areas upang ipaglaban ang kanilang karapatan sa pagkamit ng maaasahang suplay ng kuryente.

Kasalukuyang tinatalakay pa rin sa Kamara ang mga panukalang-batas na nauna nang isinumite ng Power Bloc. Patuloy na magsusulong ang mga Kinatawan mula sa Philreca Partylist, Apec Partylist, Recoboda Partylist, at Ako Padayon Pilipino Partylist ng mga makabuluhang panukala tungo sa pagkamit ng total rural electrification. Kabilang ito sa iba’t ibang mga hakbang na ginagawa nila upang masuportahan at makatulong sa mga konsumanteng patuloy na naghihirap sa gitna ng pandemya. Sinisuguro ng mga representante na walang kababayan ang mapagiiwanan hanggang tayo ay sabay-sabay na makaahon muli. ###

Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association (PHILRECA)
1 November 2020 – Update
ELECTRIC COOPERATIVES TO DEPLOY HUNDREDS OF LINEWORKERS TO ASSIST ROLLY-AFFECTED AREAS
An initial group of 52 teams composed of 306 lineworkers will be deployed by electric cooperatives from CAR, Regions 1, 2, 3, 4A, 4B, 6, and 8 to municipalities and provinces that were hardly hit by Super Typhoon Rolly (International Name: Goni). Called “Task Force Duterte – Power Restoration Rapid Deployment (TFD-PRRD)”, this EC contingent will assist the distribution utilities affected by the typhoon to restore electricity in the affected area.
The Task Force and all volunteer electric cooperatives, spearheaded by the Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association, Inc. (PHILRECA) and in cooperation with the National Electrification Administration (NEA) and One EC Network Foundation, are now on standby for deployment. Specifically, they will assist the following severely affected areas: Catanduanes, which experienced the fastest and catastrophic wind damages during Super Typhoon Rolly’s initial landfall; Camarines Sur; Albay; Marinduque; Oriental Mindoro; and Occidental Mindoro.
To ensure optimal support to the affected areas, volunteer-ECs of the Task Force will be arriving with their own boom trucks and all necessary equipment. They will also be bringing their own food, nourishment, and other needs. Receiving coops will be helping the Task Force on their accommodations.
Any additional expenses of the Task Force will be covered by the One EC Network Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of PHILRECA and the One EC-MCO Movement.
Most of the Task Force volunteers have complied already with the health and safety protocols of the local governments in the affected areas. However, due to unfavorable weather conditions, the Task Force will have to wait for the final confirmation before they can proceed with their destinations.
Electric cooperatives from other regions are also on standby to help in the restoration of energy should further need arises. As of this news release, more teams are being mobilized to be included in the first wave of EC volunteers. ###

Maintenance of Malampaya to trigger power rate hikes

The Department of Energy (DOE) confirmed that the Malampaya gas facility will undertake maintenance activities for roughly two weeks on November 14-27; and this will result in reduction on its gas output.

As an upshot of that, the country’s gas-fired power plants will need to partly shift to liquid fuels, which will be a more expensive alternative, therefore, this will subsequently drive power rates higher.

Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi explained that the scheduled repair at Malampaya “is a planned turnaround that has been coordinated with us (DOE), the Malampaya customers and the power network early 2020.”

He said “the timing was agreed based on the grid forecast at the time and the available supply.”

The energy chief assured “the planned turnaround should have minimal impact to power production,” or the electricity supply that shall be made available to the grid when the maintenance activities will be carried out.

Nevertheless, the main worry of power industry stakeholders is the resulting rate that the lower gas output of the field will spark off; to which in their assumption, will definitely precipitate spikes, primarily in settlement prices at the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM) as well as in the eventual charges of the gas-fed power generating facilities.

In the recent gas restriction experienced by Malampaya in August compounded by the outages of power plants, this set off upward adjustment in electricity rates in the October billing, hence, the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has been cautioned to keep a close watch on the behavior of trading participants in the WESM.

Laban Konsyumer Inc. (LKI) President and former Trade Undersecretary Victorio Mario Dimagiba stated in his correspondence to the ERC that it is urging “the energy sector and the regulator to stay alert on WESM prices, as these acted as triggers for the higher power rates this month.”

The group is proposing “automatic internal review in PEMC (Philippine Electricity Market Corporation) of the WESM prices, to assess what triggered the cap,” which was breached twice at P32 per kilowatt hour last September 5 and 7.

In past instances of Malampaya downtime or maintenance schedules, these always resulted in increased electricity tariffs, the worst was in 2013 because it was aggravated by simultaneous shutdowns of power plants.

With forecasts of repeated cycle of upticks in WESM prices, the LKI calls on “stricter and closer watch on WESM and a monitoring of the spot market prices and activities.”

Dimagiba stressed “WESM must be checked, and the public as well as consumers, deserve to be assured that the market is working fairly, justly and correctly.”

He further opined “it is the ERC’s job to ensure that WESM is regulated properly and there are no abnormal activities that will disadvantage the customer.” (MMV)
