The Misamis Oriental-1 Rural Electric Service Cooperative, Inc. (MORESCO-1) issues this Advisory to warn its MCOs and the general public concerning the rampant selling and promotion of Energy-Saving Devices or ESDs to reduce electric bills by trying to paint a negative image of MORESCO-1 as being the cause of high power rates.

We would like to inform everyone that these activities tend to deceive our energy consumers and promote the personal interests of these unscrupulous peddlers. To verify their claim for efficiency, consumers should ask from these sellers a test result coming from the DOE regarding their ESD .

As to other acts considered as “fixing” transactions with MORESCO-1 and collection of fees or power bill payments in behalf of MORESCO-1 , this is strictly prohibited by MORESCO-1 and futher issues this advisory in the light of recent reports received that there are individuals who are collecting fees from our MCOs.

MORESCO-1 advises the public to transact only with our Service Area Offices and pay through our Authorized Paying Stations or thru authorized online payment partners.
