DIALOGUE WITH THE DoE SECRETARY. Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi urges officials of the National Electrification Administration and the National Power Corporation (Napocor) to “go down to the cooperatives” to resolve the issues raised

Among the issues raised by the electric cooperatives were ensuring the right of way for electric projects, tax reforms, non-privatization of Agus and Pulangui complexes in Mindanao, the interconnection of SPUG areas to the main grid and the putting up of a one-stop shop and fast lane for the processing of permits and licenses for energy projects.
