Following a successful Visayas run and caravans from Ozamis and Dipolog cities, the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC), along with the Department of Energy (DOE), and Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), brought the information dissemination campaign on the Lifeline Rate program in Mindanao.

This coming Sunday, 18 February 2024, the ERC, DOE, and DSWD, in partnership with the Misamis Oriental 1 Rural Electric Service Cooperative, Inc. (MORESCO-1) and the El Salvador City local government unit, will be in Sinaloc Covered Court in Brgy Sinaloc, El Salvador City to conduct an information and dissemination campaign (IEC) on the subsidy program.

Part of the campaign is also the on-site registration caravan to encourage more member-consumer-owners from low-income households to avail the discount on MORESCO-1 electricity bills.

The ERC, which will be led by Ms. Evelyn Baula, Energy Regulation Officer II of ERC-Consumer Affairs Service, Mindanao Area Operations Division, and speakers from other agencies will orient the qualified marginalized end-users (QMEs) on how to avail the subsidy in the hopes of mitigating the rising cost of electricity. We are inviting all MCOs from the 15 barangays of El Salvador City who wish to avail this opportunity to avail this discounted power rate to see us in Sinaloc Covered Court this coming Sunday, February
