MORESCO-1’s Humble Beginnings
When the countryside lived simply with only moonlight in the sky, aided by a “petromax or gasera” inside the homes during the night; when the western part of Misamis Oriental lived through the shadows cast by Iligan and Cagayan de Oro which already enjoyed the perks of having electricity, the Philippine Government dreamt of cascading development to the farthest reach, through which, Misamis Oriental-1 Rural Electric Service Cooperative or MORESCO-1, was born, pioneering electrification through cooperation.
