BENECO keep 9% system loss rate
by PNA

The Benguet Electric Cooperative has maintained a system loss rate that is four percent lower than the allowable rate, enabling it to cut on its charges.

Engineer Carlo Joel Andres, Beneco construction and maintenance supervisor, said Beneco maintains a nine percent system loss, four percent lower than the 13 percent allowable rate, for the fifth year.

He said Beneco is a consistent recipient of a Lumens award from the National Electrification Administration for maintaining a single digit system loss and for having the lowest power rate in the country.

Lumens is an annual award given by NEA to good performing electric cooperatives.

Andres said a single digit system loss means more power sold and low wastage that translates to savings for the cooperative, and consumers do not have to pay for power they did not use.

System loss is a charge that is passed on to consumers.  

He said Beneco worked hard to attain the one-digit system loss, spending for the schooling of all engineers for two years to upgrade their skills in improving the electric cooperative’s system, making their power lines more reliable.

The cooperative also invested on the upgrade of the “backbone” lines to bigger capacity, shifted the transformer from silicone type to the amorphous type which consumes less power, and changed all the electric meters of consumers from electromechanical to electronic meters leading the cut on power being lost. 

He said that a tipster’s fee for those providing information about pilferages also helped lower the systems loss incurred by the cooperative.
