Davao Light takes over from First Bukidnon Electric Cooperative (FIBECO) the servicing of Brgys. Baganihan, Datu Salumay and Buda, giving it now full coverage of its franchise area in Davao City. Electric distribution lines and poles are now extended to these areas, which run approximately 90 kilometers from the Davao city center.
“We’re glad that we’ve finally covered the entire city of Davao. And we’re happier to tell them that Davao Light will not only provide electricity service to their community but we will also extend our corporate social responsibility projects to them, which is what we have been doing to various communities within our franchise,” said Davao Light EVP and COO Art Milan.
Before the new contracts were signed, Davao Light, together with partners Bureau of Fire Protection and the staff and officials of FIBECO conducted a series of orientations for its new customers. A ceremonial switch-on was held with the attendance of local government officials, the residents of the barangays and Davao Light team members.
