ROXAS CITY, Capiz – Eight personnel of the Capiz Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CAPELCO) who helped restore electricity in Guimaras in the aftermath of typhoon Odette will be deployed to Negros Occidental.

According to Engr. Edgar Diaz, CAPELCO general manager, the personnel will help restore supply in the service area of Negros Occidental Electric Cooperative (NONECO) as part of the “sisterhood of electric cooperatives tradition” under energy department’s Task Force Kapatid program.

It may be recalled that Guimaras Electric Cooperative, Inc. (GUIMELCO) also augmented the personnel of the Electric Cooperative when typhoon Ursula hit Capiz in 2019.

The eight personnel include team leader Arlan Dangan, drivers Glenn Datar and Mario de Ocampo, and linemen Remegio Delfin, Mauro Detangco, Ramil Fabila, Justin Fedalgo and Carmelo Daliva.

They also brought with them a boom truck and a utility truck.
