If there is one benefit the leadership dispute in Benguet Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Beneco) can give its customers, it the postponement of late payment fine of electricity bills.

In a report to National Electrification Administration Emmanuel Juaneza on Wednesday, Beneco project supervisor Atty. Omar Mayo said they are implementing the NEA Board Resolution suspending the late payment fine for delinquent customers.

“To avoid further complicating the situation, the NEA Team issued an advisory closing the South Drive for business on 20 October,” Mayo said.

“The NEA Team has gained traction towards normalcy of operations with the return of several linemen to the fold,” he added.

Copies of the Board Resolution were also personally served to Beneco board president Atty. Esteban Somngi, other suspended directors, and Beneco Institutional services manager Atty. Delmar Carino.

Mayo also noted that emergency tellers were deployed on Tuesday since no employee reported to work.

He said Beneco’s consolidated collections from different payment centers were close to a million pesos from power consumers at the South Drive payment center alone, which was then deposited to LandBank under the account of Beneco.
