    That would be a libel lawsuit waiting to happen.

    It needs to be done. It is a bit unfair to complain about the shitty infrastructure and then turn around and complain when they are improving it.

    Yep. Planned improvements are one thing. Random breakages are different.

    What I complain loudly about is not the program to upgrade poles, it's the planning, priorities and management of the system. I will bet a restaurant lunch that NO pole or tower carrying the 69KV primary north-south cable is still made of wood, i bet that the problem is that NORECO shuts down power everywhere (BLACKout), because the disconnect switches are either non-existent or maintained so poorly that they are untrustworthy. Thus inconveniencing several hundred thousand customers.

    If the distribution system beyond the 69KV grid were correct, the section containing the wooden poles would have disconnect switches installed, and NORECO would only inconvenience a few thousand per day. The PRIORITY should be the distribution system, not the remaining poles. In order to collect the lunch, the challenger must meet me at the pole, bring along a NORECO engineer, and provide me with a drawing of the distribution system (some blog or customer rant or supposed noreco email on the internet is NOT proof)... K ?????

    I believe the main lines are NGCP, distribution is NORECO. I don't believe NORECO has much say over what NGCP does.

    Only if they are Mayors or belong to some obscure religious sect.

    Not heard of brownout dates being moved Rye? I'm aware of two, one very recently in the province, reason being 'requested by the Mayor of Sta Catalina'. No core reason made aware. Maybe a relatives birthday celebration, or some such thing.

    Ok...and what does that have to do with my last post? Yeah, they get moved sometimes but how is that evidence of NORECO having a say in when NGCP brownouts occur? And they almost always give a reason for the date change in their press releases. I'm sure NORECO, along with LGUs (and pretty much anyone else with their contact information), can make requests to have NGCP maintenance pushed back but they are just that..."requests". I'm sure they get a request from someone nearly every single time they announce maintenance.
