ILIGAN CITY (PIA)--Fifty households in Purok 10, Phase 3, Barangay Dalipuga in this city are set to benefit from the energization of power lines by Iligan Light and Power, Inc. (ILPI).

ILPI has already successfully energized households up to the barangay halls of all 44 barangays within the city. This expansion into Purok 10 of Dalipuga signifies a vital step towards ensuring that even remote and underserved communities have access to reliable electricity.

"Kining activity karon nga gihimo o program, mao ang continuation sa pag-energize sa 44 barangays down to sitio, purok hantod na sa mga household. Si Iligan light nagtinguha gyud nga makahatag og suga sa tanang residente dinhi sa Iligan [This activity or program we are conducting is a continuation of our efforts to provide electricity from the 44 barangays down to the sitios, puroks, and even to individual households. Iligan Light is committed to bringing light to all residents here in Iligan]," said Jeffre Opema, operations unit manager and spokesperson of ILPI, during the ceremonial switch-on ceremony.

Trinidad Maraño is among the 17 households out of the 50 targeted that have recently gained access to electricity. Having resided in this area for 11 years, she expressed her delight with the electrification of their community.

"Pasalamat jud mi'g dako sa Iligan Light nga naa nako'y kuryente, sa mga opisyales, sa among kapitan ug purok president  [I am very happy. We are truly grateful to Iligan Light for bringing electricity to us, to the officials, our barangay chairperson, and the purok president]," she said.

Meanwhile, Nilda Hamoy, barangay chairperson of Dalipuga, expressed her gratitude for ILPI's commitment to the welfare of the community.

As a part of the program, ILPI conducted a short orientation on how to apply for electricity connections in homes. ILPI also raised awareness about crucial safety rules and regulations to protect residents and prevent illegal activities like unauthorized electricity connections. The residents were also informed about the consequences of violating these rules. (LELA/PIA-10/Lanao del Norte)
