Streetlights along Kennon Rd. to be restored

Oct 14, 2017

The street lights that used to greet passengers to Baguio through the scenic Kennon Rd. will be restored by the Benguet Electric Cooperative which wrote-off the power arrears and pay the incoming energy consumption through the cooperative social responsibility fund of director Robert Valentin of Tuba and Sablan towns.
In a letter, Valentin informed Benguet Rep. Ronald Cosalan, provincial governor Crescenco Pacalso, Tuba mayor Ignacio Rivera and Punong barangy Ciupriano Balinag of Camp 1, Tuba that the Beneco board condoned power bills totalling P40,272.75, with future payments estimated at P4,500 a month charged to his corporate social responsibility fund.
The illumination of the approach to Tuba and Baguio was earlier sponsored by Benguet Rep. Ronald Cosalan but was discontinued in November 2010.
“We are likewise pleased to inform you,” Valentin said, “that our Beneco Honorable Board favorably approved the condonation of the P40,272.25 unbilled power of the said streetlights. Moreover, our cooperative will shoulder the necessary rehabilitation of the streetlights as well as extension of secondary lines with an estimated cost of P23,086.10.”
“We hope that our modest contribution will improve the image of the Cordilleras as one of the premier tourist destinations in the country,” Valentin added.
Aside from illuminating the approach to Baguio, the streetlights at Camp 1 give commuters who are traveling at night the signal that they are already ascending to the city proper and to other parts of Benguet. RAMON DACAWI / ABN
