BENECO donates P3 million worth of lighting equipment to Baguio

BAGUIO CITY February 04 – The management of the Benguet Electric Cooperative (BENECO) donated to the city government lighting fixtures and other related accessories to boost the bid of local officials to light up the city’s parks and major thoroughfares to deter the commission of crimes. The donation amounts to a total of P3 million.

A total of 112 fixtures were used to light up Loakan road leading to the vicinity of the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) while 138 fixtures were used to light up Burnham Park exclusive of the 50 poles used to hold the lighting facilities.

The proposal of the rural electric cooperative to help light up various parks and streets in the city at no expense to the local government, except for the monthly power bills, has been pending before the city government since the previous administration.

Gerardo P. Verzosa, BENECO general manager, said the lighting equipment used along the Loakan road was valued at P1.4 million while the lighting fixtures and poles used around Burnham Park is worth at least P1.5 million although more fixtures will still be installed around the city’s premier park.

For his part, Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan expressed the gratitude of the local government to the rural electric cooperative for the multi-million donation since it will contribute to lighting up the city’s main park and streets to sustain the city’s identity as the city of lights not only during the Yuletide season.

The additional lighting equipment given out by BENECO will be used to augment the lighting facilities to be installed in the different parts of Burnham Park funded under the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) of Rep. Bernardo M.Vergara which was coursed to the Department of Energy (DOE) and now on the process of being bidded out.

Lawyer Benny Bomogao, BENECO Board press relations officer, revealed that the cooperative is still awaiting the decision of the city government on its earlier proposal to light up 26 other unlighted areas in the city, mostly major parks and streets, to help in enticing the influx of more people to visit the country’s undisputed Summer Capital, citing that the availability of lights will be instrumental in sustaining law and order in a certain place.

The P3 million lighting donation of the cooperative to the city government is inclusive of the fixtures, poles, materials and labor cost for their installation.

Bomogao said the lighted Burnham Park will now be a safer promenade area.**
