Free Coaching Series, Breaking Through Limits

Group Coaching Breaking Through Limits Feature Image

I am launching a new group coaching this August – Breaking Through Limits under the campaign of Coach Nile.PH to empower us to thrive in a constricted uncertain environment nowadays. 

Breaking Through Limits is a FREE 4-part weekly online group coaching series that will discuss and identify what stops us from becoming our best selves. Also, sessions will help us discover strategies on how we can overcome these obstacles. 

We have our personal pegs and dreams to be someone someday. However, some walls invisibly hinder us. I included four of the most common walls which will be discussed weekly. 

Breaking Through Limits started last August 6 discussing the first wall, Limitation on Possibilities. It answered the basic roadblocks in achieving our dreams, visions, goals, and plans.

Our mind is a gift during creation that can conceive what is intangible to bring it to reality. Vision and dreams, goals, and plans are in the dimension of imagination which has no element of time and space. It is just a matter of time that we see them in our physical dimension as a result of a series of actions and interactions.

Our mind is the asset we can develop without costing us so much, especially with the pandemic now – the very reason why this is made for FREE. It is made possible through the support of Coach Nile.Ph monthly supporters, Iloilo Bloggers SocietyIBS Digital Network, and Thinkspace located in Jalandoni St. Jaro Iloilo City, across Jollibee Drive-thru, above Ultracare.

This aims to push us forward despite the crisis we are facing these days. I am still hopeful that we will thrive over this pandemic and we will get to the other side of this together. 

To join the sessions of Breaking Through Limits, register through this link: https://bit.ly/2X04qeA . Come and join us for the rest of the remaining session!

RISE ACEPH AC Energy Philippines Relief Packs Iloilo City Feature

Iloilo City – As Ilonggos are settling back to their homes, AC Energy Philippines (ACEPH) continues its commitment to assisting the affected families from the recent oil spill in Bo. Obrero, especially with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Ayala group and the Philippine Air Force supported ACEPH to continue to provide the needs of the affected communities. Ayala Foundation and Ayala Coop donated the meal packs from Rise Against Hunger Philippines, a hunger relief non-profit organization that coordinates the packaging and distribution of food and other aid to vulnerable communities.

Philippine Air Force helped in flying in the donated boxes July 30, while the other Ayala business units, namely, Ayala Business Club, Seda Hotels, Globe Telecom, and AC Motors, provided logistical support during distribution. After the boxes were unloaded from the carrier, the goods were disinfected to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

This is a continued effort in response to the oil spill that happened last July 3, 2020 in Bo. Obrero, Iloilo City. From submitting the Environment Management Plan which included (1) completion of oil spill cleanup and ensuring that water quality is restored to safe levels; (2) continued monitoring of air quality and ensuring that air quality is safe before affected families are allowed to return to their homes; (3) proper collection and disposal of oil contaminated materials and wastes; and (4) rehabilitation plan for the affected mangrove areas and fisheries to community support especially now during a pandemic. This is complimented with an effort for the safe return of affected families to their homes.

MORE Power aligns to Iloilo City as Investment Destination

MORE aligns to Iloilo City as Investment Destination

More Electric and Power Corp. (MORE Power) earns support from Iloilo City business and transport leaders for its operations as the new utility distributor.

In a separate media statement, business and transport leaders considered MORE Power’s effort to correct the current state of disrepair of the city’s electricity distribution system is a commitment they promised, which naturally resulted in scheduled power outages.

Moreover, the old utility Panay Electric Co. (PECO) was asked by several business leaders to accept it’s lost the electricity distribution business and move on to spare the city the ongoing struggle.

The president of the Iloilo City Loop Alliance of Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association (ICLAJODA), Raymundo Parcon, praised MORE Power for “diligently doing their upgrading and comprehensive preventive maintenance in all its substations and upgrading its distribution lines.”

This statement debunked the claims of the old utility Panay Electric Co. (PECO) that the new service provider, MORE Power, has caused power outages to hit Iloilo City in recent weeks due to its lack of experience in running such an operation.

The Iloilo Economic Development Foundation (ILEDF), a group of Iloilo City’s varied business associations, stated through its Executive Director, Francis Gentoral, that ILEDF “is confident that MORE Power remains true to its commitment to provide transparent service and has never shied away from informing the public of the unscheduled power interruptions, their durations, and causes.”

ILEDF said PECO could best serve Iloilo’s interests if it accepts it has lost the power distribution business.

”ILEDF calls for unity in the face of the global health crisis and for PECO to accept the things it can no longer change — expired franchise, revoked CPCN, revoked Mayor’s Permit — for the whole of Iloilo City to move forward and level up as envisioned by the city government.”

ILEDF said the city’s power distribution utility should have “a demonstrated capability, track record, and financial capability to operate and maintain a distribution utility for a fast-growing metropolis; make significant investments in infrastructure; systems and technology; and human resources; and maintain a long-term commitment to Iloilo.”

MORE aligns to Iloilo City as Investment Destination

The business group noted that for the first time, “Iloilo City consumers … finally, enjoy(ed) a (per) kilowatt-hour (kWh) rate of less than Php10 when MORE Power took over as distribution utility” as Iloilo City had recorded one of the highest power rates in the entire Philippines for more than 15 years under PECO.

They also noted the experience of Iloilo City’s businesses and residents in the first few months of MORE Power’s operation that it ” supports efforts to address public welfare concerns particularly on the eradication of theft of electricity, fire prevention, and overall improvement of services to the Iloilo City consumers.”

Meanwhile, Western Visayas Transport Cooperative general manager Halley Alcarde is satisfied that MORE Power “is really committed to delivering the needed upgrades in all aspects of their operations, from upgrading the capacity of every substation to their distribution lines, and replacements of old meters of its consumers.”

He also noted the uproar from Iloilo City’s consumers before MORE Power took over in March this year over PECO’s overbilling of its customers and the proliferation of illegal connections that resulted in a higher rate of systems loss that caused Ilonggos’ monthly power bills one of the highest in the Philippines.

In particular, the general manager commended MORE Power President Roel Castro for being “very open and transparent with most of its dealings and on handling the operations down the line as consumers are updated of the current power distribution situation in the city as well its current limitations, something that we don’t know from the previous one.”

The business group regarded that this position was in line with the vision of the city’s business leaders to promote Iloilo as a preferred investment destination and underscoring the urgency for the world-class electricity service for Iloilo City.

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

“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.

ILOILO CITY – MORE Electric Company is now open for consumers applications and inquiries 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 take over PECO’s distribution assets. 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.

For consumers who are living in the house owned by a deceased relative and you don’t have any proof of occupancy document under your name, you can still apply for an electric connection. 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.

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. MORE Power office is also accepting applications and payments on weekends.

For consumers who have 15 years-old meters which seems to be unreliable, MORE Power has MORE KOREK. It is a program of MORE Power that targets the replacement of all defective and aging meters without any cost.
