SURNECO, Surigao Water offer 5% off to Surigaonon elderly

Surigaonon elderly can now enjoy the 5% discount of electricity and water bills.

Surigao del Norte Electric Cooperative (SURNECO) Gen. Manager Engr. Danny Escalante, in an interview, said a senior citizen can now avail of 5% discount after the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) finally passed a resolution adopting the rules governing the implementation of such discount as mandated under Republic Act 9994 or the Expanded Senior Citizen’s Act of 2010.

Engr. Escalante said a senior citizen, whose household use must not exceed 100 kilowatt-hours, could avail himself of the discount as long the bill was registered under his name for at least a year.

“The implementation will start this billing month of January,” said Engr. Escalante.

To avail of the discount, Engr. Escalante said a senior citizen should submit the following: duly accomplished application form at SURNECO office, photocopy of the Senior Citizen ID card issued by the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA), and SURNECO bill (bearing your name).

Meanwhile, Surigao del Norte Metropolitan Water District (SMWD) Division Manager Sandra Bonilla said that the 5-percent discount on senior citizen water bills offered by SMWD has already been implemented since last year.

“After the passage of Republic Act 9994, or the Expanded Senior Citizen’s Act of 2010 early last year, we have already been implementing a discount,” said Bonilla.

Bonilla said that to avail of its discount, a senior citizen or his authorized representative should accomplish an application form and submit a photocopy of the Senior Citizen identification (ID) card issued by OSCA (original ID should be presented to SMWD for proper verification); his water bill; and a special power of attorney executed by the senior citizen in favor of the authorized representative if applicable.
