Naga - In line with the primary objective of the Department of Energy to attain (90%) percent household electrification by 2017, the City Government of Naga, Cebu through its Office of the Building Official (OBO) is implementing the Rural Electrification program since 2013.
Rural electrification is one of the top priorities of the local government in the belief that provision of electric services will stimulate rural development, yield more opportunities and improved quality of life to the indigent residents, most especially those living in the far-flung areas in the City. In support of the DOE's program, the City Council passed a resolution waiving the imposition of electrical permit fees of qualified (indigent) households without access to electricity as certified by the Punong Barangay.
Since 2013, around 300 indigent households have already availed the Rural Electrification program as shown by the table below.
