Atty. Babayen-on on MORE’s Lawful Takeover?

MORE Power Iloilo

ILOILO CITY – MORE Electric Company started its operations after a ‘writ of possession’ was issued to Panay Electric Company four days ago by Judge Emerald Requina-Contreras of the Regional Trial Court Branch 23, allowing newcomer MORE Electric Company to takeover PECO’s distribution assets. Contrary to the claims of lawyers from PECO’s side, Atty. Allana Babayen-on, one of MORE Power’s legal counsels, stressed out they had a lawful takeover as provided by Section 2 of Rule 67 of the Rule of Court. 

“Let a Writ of Possession be issued to plaintiff More Power Corporation, in order to place MORE in possession of the enumerated properties above under categories A and B. The Sheriff of this court or other proper officer is hereby ordered to place the plaintiff in possession of the properties enumerated above under categories A and B. The Sheriff of this court or other proper officer is hereby ordered to place the plaintiff in possession of the property above enumerated and submit a report thereof to the court, with service of copies to the parties pursuant to Section 2 of Rule 67 of the Rules of Court,” excerpt from the Writ of Possession taped on the entrance of the Panay Electric Company building.

Category A includes properties that PECO did not contest as ‘distribution assets’, such as the Baldoza, La Paz Substation; General Luna, City Proper Substation; and the Tabuc Suba, Jaro Substation, among others having a total assessed value of Php 217,940,870. Category B includes properties that the court initially deems as part of the distribution assets being listed under PECO’s distribution plant in the ERC record, and maybe necessary for MORE to have an uninterrupted operation once the writ is implemented. The properties include meter lab, power plant building, and switchboard housed within the General Luna PECO compound. The properties have an assessed value of Php 14,792,680. – Feature Iloilo News

MORE Power Iloilo

“We have a writ of possession which was delivered by the sheriff to be executed under the ministerial duty.” said Atty. Babayen-on. “As far as I know, the court ordered to maintain peace.” she added. 

As for the temporary restraining order pointed out by PECO, “There was only an application of TRO, not an implementing TRO from the Supreme Court. As far as I know, only a TRO from the Supreme Court can stop us from implementing the ‘writ of possession’.” Atty. Babayen-on added.

MORE Power Iloilo

“We recognize their rights to apply for TRO or to go as far as to any legal option that may serve them. And we are happy that they are undergoing any remedies for their side.” said Enrique Razon Jr. President of MORE Elecrticity and Power Corporation. “But I hope, after exhausting all options, there will be acceptance.” he added.

For more questions, please visit MORE Power’s Customer Services Office at General Luna Street, Brgy. Inday, City Proper, Iloilo City or you may call their hotline numbers.

Here are things consumers should know when applying for an account or meter connection.

For consumers who are applying for new meter connection, kindly secure an application form, government ID, proof of occupancy and Certificate of Final Electrical Inspection. Should there be no available proof of occupancy, secure a Barangay Certificate of Residency and Permit for Temporary Service Connection & Oath of Undertaking.

These are the requirements you need to comply: Application Form, Government ID, Barangay Certificate of Residency, and Permit for Temporary Service Connection & Oath of Undertaking.

The electric meter in the house is named under a deceased father. You can update the details of your account. You need to submit the following requirements for us to update your account: Government ID, Proof of Ownership, Previous monthly bill from the previous DU (or previous monthly electric bill of MORE Power), and Proof of billing from other utilities that states your name and address.

MORE Power

In cases you still receive the bill from the previous DU, where should you pay? MORE Power encourages you to pay the bill at the previous DU’s office or at their authorized collecting agencies. For payment transaction, you can pay the bill deposit in available payment centers. You can pay at BDO, Landbank, Robinsons Bank, PNB, Palawan Express, RD Pawnshop, LBC and SM Supermalls.

Love Camp 2020 – Love Revolution Has Began!

Love Camp

ILOILO CITY – Love Revolution has began as Love Camp 2020 kicked off with a theme #NoMoreHeartbreak and a full packed hall of hundreds of youth and young professionals last February 14, 2020 at the Philippine Red Cross Bldg., Bonifacio Drive, Iloilo City.

Love Camp is pioneered by a group of young entrepreneurs being Nile on Weekends as the official partner on digital media. It is a community to campaign and to educate youth and young professionals in the management of love and relationships these days. 

Love Camp

Love Camp 2020 as an event was composed of music, games, giveaways, and talks on the three major topics; Finding Your Lifetime Partner Testimonial Love Story of Pastor Ryan and Sharon Valenzuela, Mental Health on Relationship by Dr. May Ann Sta. Lucia, and Preparing for a Family Life by Pastor Tony Carnaje.

“Boys, do not violate the privacy of your girlfriends.” a friendly reminder by Pastor Ryan. “If you think that person is your God-given partner, the first thing you should is to pray for God to protect your partner for you.” he added. 

Love Camp

Pastor Ryan and Sharon Valenzuela

“At the age of 10, I received a vision from God. Years passed by and I got married. I learned that my husband also had the same vision like mine. When you ask for a relationship, ask God for a lifetime partner who has the vision as you have. Then, God will be the center of your relationship.” as reminisced by Mrs. Sharon Valenzuela, wife of Pastor Ryan Valenzuela.

This is followed by a mental health discussion by Dr. May Ann Sta. Lucia. “Love relationship is not always a sunshine. There are times that your relationship will go through tough times and tension. Learn how to manage the tension to survive the stress. You have to be mentally well and spiritually healthy to keep a relationship. ” she emphasized.

Love Camp

Dr. May Ann Sta. Lucia

Pastor Tony Carnaje capped the event with a commitment challenge. He raised the question on the most intriguing topic in this generation, “Is sex before marriage ok?” He answered with a very serious tone, “Your greatest gift to your partner during your wedding day is your abstinence and purity.” Also, premarital sex may lead to the unpreparedness of having early pregnacy. “We are not created for this kind of system. God made sex as a good thing for married couples to enjoy. We need to know our boundaries. Wait for the right time.” He added.

Love Camp

Pastor Tony Carnaje

With over 240 youth and young professionals that night, Iloilo City is seeing a love revolution in the most connected generation ever, millennials and generation Z! Love Camp is envisioned to be a yearly event of Feb 14 to gather youth and young adults in the most emotional day of the year as everyone is looking for someone to have a date with.

The company is launching two new office towers – Enterprise One and Enterprise Two – each 12-storeys high right along the bustling stretch of Megaworld Boulevard in the city’s modern business park.

The two new office towers will offer around 78,000 square meters of fresh office spaces.

Sporting modern architecture, both Enterprise One and Enterprise Two will be applied for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

“The demand for office spaces in Iloilo Business Park has been steadily growing the past years. Most of the companies that want to set up operations in Iloilo prefer the township concept that we offer because it helps ensure convenience and comfort necessary for the retention of their employees,” explains Roland Tiongson, first vice president, Megaworld Premier Offices.

To date, Megaworld has almost 65,000 square meters of office spaces in eight buildings that are fully operational. These towers, which include One Global Center, Two Global Center, Richmonde Tower, One Techno Place, Two Techno Place, Three Techno Place, and Festive Walk Office 1 and 2, are currently fully leased out.

An additional 35,000 square meters are now under construction, which are expected to be completed by next year. These are One Fintech Place A, One Fintech Place B, and Two Fintech Place.

Among the first-time locators in Iloilo City that are in Iloilo Business Park include StarTek, iQor, Reed Elsevier, WNS, Nearsol, and Connectsys. Companies like Transcom and HGS have also expanded their existing Iloilo operations in the township.

“By 2022, we expect our office stocks to reach around 175,000 square meters, the biggest for a single developer in Iloilo City. These office towers are able to generate approximately 62,000 jobs in the BPO sector,” adds Tiongson.

Transcom Iloilo Goes Green 2020

Transcom Iloilo Goes Green 2020

Transcom Iloilo continues to create efforts in preserving and protecting our environment as the city is preparing for its annual festival. An estimated 20,000 participants, both locals and tourists, went out to the streets to experience the parade leading to the Viva Musicfest where OPM bands and artists were invited to perform at the Megaworld Blvd., Iloilo Business Park.

Throughout the festivities, Transcom Iloilo provided trash bins, instead of branded paraphernalias that will end up in landfills. This way, participants will also be aware of proper waste segregation. Hundreds of local Transcom employees also joined the festivity not just to have fun, but with a mission to ensure a waste-free event.

As Transcom’s CEO for GER, Mark Lyndsell, puts it into words — Transcom’s 2020 vision is to continue the initiative to take care of the environment and lessen the ecological footprints. This started in 2019 with planting trees along the shoreline of Iloilo.

Making life simpler by creating smarter people experiences, Trancom’s vision is a promise and an obligation to their employees, their clients, and their clients’ customers. Sustainability was an essential part in their corporate strategy, business culture, and daily operations.

Transcom Cares is Transcom’s sustainability program focusing on social sustainability. This program started as an employee grassroots initiative by Transcom employees in the Philippines. Over the years, it grew into an overarching global corporate outreach program. The program consists of three pillars: people development, equality and diversity, and community engagement.

Transcom Iloilo is strongly committed to the communities in which they operate. Their employees’ passion to contribute their time and energy fuels many of their community engagement activities, making us all proud to work at Transcom.

Don’t forget to be habitually conscious on our garbage disposal. Check out Transcom recyclable bins around the area as you visit Iloilo City during the festivities!
