The recently concluded MORESCO -1’s Big Loads Forum last November 29, was considered by audience | delegates as informative, understandable and insightful and when asked on whether forums like these could be considered as an annual event, all the respondents said yes.

Seventy-four percent of the delegates said they love the roll-out of the event; 87% rated the speakers the highest rating of 5, 48% rated the event venue, arrangement, program and meals high 5 marks and most suggested that they go for a bigger venue, more variety of food and inclusion of dance numbers and more time slot for audience participation.

The three speakers collectively discussed the current energy landscape; provided updates to its high and low voltage consumers (HV/LV), Power Supply Outlook, Retail Competition and Open Access (RCOA), a look into the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM), Net Metering, Green Energy Option Program (GEOP) and the electric cooperative’s future proofing plans.

A separate Energy Forum for the local government units and its Municipal Councils will be held in the same venue on January 17, 2023.

These Forums are to be spearheaded by the Institutional Services Department (ISD) thru the Member Customer Development Chief and the Corporate Public Relations Office in coordination and collaboration with the Corporate Planning, Engineering Services and the Management Committee.
