PUD HEIGHTENED SERVICE TO OLONGAPEÑOS
In his desire to systematize and fortify the distribution and flow of electricity in Olongapo, Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. has directed the Public Utilities Department under the leadership of PUD Manager, Engr. Luisito Lopez to continue the installation of transformers to the different barangays in the city.
‘’Wala na dapat pang madilim na tahanan sa Olongapo kaya patuloy kung tinututukan ang PUD na magsagawa ng pagsasa-ayos at pagdaragdag ng mga transformers upang mapalakas ang boltahe ng kuryente,’’ said Mayor Bong Gordon.
In an accomplishment report by Engr. Lopez submitted at the Mayor’s Office, one hundred percent (100%) of the extension of primary lines and transformer installations were completed in 12th Street near Rodriguez St., Brgy. New Kalalake and the replacement of overloaded transformers from 50kva to 75kva at Brgy. Barretto.
Residents from Sampaguita St. corner Maganda St. were happy with the primary line extensions and transformer installations in their area. ‘’Additional transformer na rin ang nailagay sa Mayumi St., Brgy. Sta Rita, this is to reduce the load on the 100kva transformer sa nasabing lugar. Sa 1504 Jolo St. Tabacuhan, Sta Rita ay nagawan na rin ng paraan ang kanilang transformer na may oil leak kaya maayos na rin iyon,’’ Engr. Lopez explained.
The request for streetlight fixtures from residents of Purok-13 and Purok-5 Rizal St., Brgy Barretto was immediately acted upon by the PUD. In fact, eight (8) streetlights were installed at Purok-13 and four (4) were installed at Purok-5 respectively.
Some deteriorated secondary lines were also rebuilt to sturdier concrete poles at B-3 Mayumi St. and Pagal St. while a 100kva transformer at Mayumi St. cor. J.P. Rizal St., Sta. Rita was replaced.
With the utmost support Mayor Gordon, the PUD is continuously rebuilding, replacing and repairing primary and secondary lines, installing transformers, concrete poles and streetlight fixtures to the different barangays to serve the people of Olongapo better.
