President Benigno S. Aquino III led the ceremonial switch-on of the National Electrification Administration’s Sitio Electrification Program for Region VIII in Isabel, Leyte.
The program targets around 2,140 sitios or 6,278 households until the end of the year. As of today, 192 sitios were already energized covering the provinces of Leyte, Southern Leyte, Biliran and Samar. Together with the Barangay Line Enhancement Program, it will not just provide electricity to far-flung areas but will also generate jobs and improve the lives of the poor in rural communities.
