The Central Negros Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CENECO) is one of the 119 electric cooperatives in the Philippines. It was incorporated on February 24, 1975 in Bacolod City, in the Province of Negros Occidental.
CENECO initially serviced Silay City; on May 16, 1976, it took over the electric system of the Municipality of Murcia. On June 1978, with the help of the national government, CENECO purchased and took over the A. S. Diaz Electric service (ASDES) which served Bacolod City and Talisay. The following year, on June 1979, CENECO took over the Bago Electric System and Ma-ao Electric System in Bago City.
At this time, CENECO's generating units were hard-pressed to keep up with the load demand of its coverage area. CENECO had to resort to load shedding, which included scheduled brownouts. The power shortage was relieved with the coming of the power barge from the National Power Corporation on June 16, 1981. This was stationed along Bacolod's Reclamation Area Project and augmented CENECO's electric power supply.
Beginning July 4, 1984, the Palinpinon Geothermal Power Plant started supplying power to CENECO. The plant, located in Brgy. Palinpinon not far from Dumaguete City, became the main source of power for Negros Island. It supplied CENECO, VRESCO, NOCECO, NORECO I and NORECO II.
CENECO suffered a major loss in its operations with the coming of Typhoon Ruping in November 1991. Almost half of CENECO's electric poles had to be replaced or repaired due to damage. The work was so extensive that normal operation was restored the following year in February.
Other typhoons also contributed their share to the damage and to the losses of the cooperative. Typhoon Puring in 1994 and Typhoon Pepang in 1995 caused setbacks to CENECO's efforts to recover.
In late 2001, CENECO was padlocked by the Bacolod City government over the cooperative's tax-exempt status, resulting in non-payment of franchise and other taxes, a dispute that was resolved with the intervention of the Department of the Interior and Local Government and the National Electrification Administration, which restored the status quo until the Supreme Court reaches a final decision.
The passage of R.A. 9136, otherwise known as the EPIRA 2001 or the Electric Power Industry Reform Act, has restructured the power situation in the country. This act has, among others, allowed the participation of the Independent Power Producers, the privatization of the National Power Corporation, and required the cooperatives and private distribution utilities to unbundle their power rates.
Brief History of CENECO
The Central Negros Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CENECO), was incorporated on February 24, 1975 in Bacolod City. The incorporating members of the Board of Directors are Plaridel G. Villadelgado, Jose V. Ramos, Fortunato D. Santiago, Pedro L. De Oca, Jr. and Manuel H. Celis, Jr.
CENECO initially serviced Silay city. On May 16, 1976, it took over the electric System of the Municipality of Murcia. In June 1978, with the help of the national government, CENECO purchased and took over the A. S. Diaz Electric service (ASDES) which served Bacolod City and Talisay. The following year, in June 1979, CENECO took over the Bago Electric System and Ma-ao Electric System in Bago City.
At this time CENECO's generating units were hard-pressed to keep up with the load demand of its coverage area. CENECO had to resort to load shedding which included scheduled brownouts. The power shortage was relieved with the coming of the Power Barge from the National Power Electrification on June 16, 1981. This was stationed along Bacolod's Reclamation Area Project and augmented CENECO's electric power supply.
Beginning July 4, 1984, the Palinpinon Geothermal Power Plant (PGPP) started supplying power to CENECO. The PGPP, located in Brgy. Palinpinon not far from Dumaguete City, became the main source of power for Negros Island. It supplied CENECO, VRESCO, NOCECO, NORECO I and NORECO II.
With the power situation stabilized and with the increasing number of members, they clamored for more representation in the Board of Directors. The General Assembly increased the number of Districts from five (5) to nine (9) Districts in 1987 and the first District Elections to fill up the new set-up were held the following year.
CENECO suffered a major loss in its operations with the coming of Typhoon Ruping in November, 1991. Almost half of CENECO's electric poles had to be replaced or repaired due to damage. The work was so extensive that normal operation was restored the following year in February.
Other typhoons also contributed their share to the damage and to the losses of the cooperative. Puring in 1994 and Pepang in 1995 caused setbacks to CENECO's efforts to recover.
On the political front, there was a misunderstanding with the Bacolod City government regarding the cooperative's tax-exempt status. CENECO was padlocked for non-payment of franchise and other taxes in late 2001, a dispute that was resolved with the intervention of the Department of the Interior and Local Government and the National Electrification Administration, which restored the status quo until the Supreme Court reaches a final decision.
The passage of R.A. 9136, otherwise known as the EPIRA 2001 or the Electric Power Industry Reform Act, is restructuring the power situation in the country. This act has, among others, allowed the participation of the Independent Power Producers, the privatization of the National Power Corporation, and required the cooperatives and private distribution utilities to unbundle their power rates. These are all efforts to improve power services and make the power industry in the Philippines globally competitive.
Like other power distributing utilities, CENECO is aiming to be more member-consumer friendly and technically dependable in the face of growing competition.
To be the primary economic driver for community development through quality service at reasonable rates.
The preferred electricity service provider of international standards
CENECO is committed to deliver the highest quality services, most satisfied consumers and constant compliance to legal, regulatory and statutory requirements.
We shall relentlessly pursue:
1. Consumers satisfaction
2. Continuous process improvements
3. People development
4. Stakeholder satisfaction
Giving light... Creating opportunities...
Power for Me & You
We'll light your lives
We are wired with such desire

Energy Conservation Tips
Whenever you save energy, you not only save money, you also reduce the demand for such fossil fuels as coal, oil, and natural gas. Less burning of fossil fuels also means lower emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the primary contributor to global warming, and other pollutants.
You do not have to do without to achieve these savings. There is now an energy efficient alternative for almost every kind of appliance or light fixture. That means that consumers have a real choice and the power to change their energy use on a revolutionary scale.
Together, we use nearly a million dollars worth of energy every minute, night and day, every day of the year. By exercising even a few of the following steps, you can cut your annual emissions by thousands of pounds and your energy bills by a significant amount!
Turn off all computer/laptop equipment unless in use, especially at night and on weekends.
Screen savers do not save energy. Use power management features so your computer monitor and hard drive will go into
"sleep mode" when not in use.
Turn off your monitor when you leave your desk to go to lunch or to a meeting.
Turn off monitors on servers.
Enable power management features on laser printers and/or turn off laser printers when not printing.
Buy low wattage equipment certified by the EPA's "EnergyStar" program and be sure to enable power management features when
setting up equipment.
Use natural lighting instead of electric lighting whenever possible.
Turn off unused or unneeded lights.
Try task lighting and reduce overhead lighting.
Use fluorescent bulbs in desk lamps.
Halogen floor lamps are very energy wasteful and may pose a safety risk.
Heating & Cooling
Dress for the season and keep thermostats set to achieve 68 - 70 degrees F in the winter and 74 - 76 degrees F for
air-conditioned spaces in the summer.
During the cooling season close blinds, drapes and curtains to block direct sun.
During the heating season, open blinds, drapes and curtains to let sun in. If no sun, close them to keep the heat in especially at
Use hot water sparingly.
Purchase energy-efficient models.
Turn off all energy consuming office and research equipment when not in use,
(e.g. copiers, refrigerators, environmental rooms, fume hood, etc.).
Set your home thermostat to a temperature as low as comfortable (65 - 68 °F is suggested) when the house is occupied.
Set back your thermostat by as much as 10 °F at night or when the house is unoccupied during the day.
Set back the thermostat to 50 - 55 °F when the house is unoccupied for over 24 hours.
Install a programmable thermostat to automatically provide the setbacks mentioned above.
Close the fireplace damper - except during fireplace use.
Reduce heat to unused rooms in the house by closing doors and heat registers.
Replace furnace filters once a month during the heating season.
Keep objects away from and clean heating registers regularly.
Have certified maintenance personnel service and check your furnace regularly.
Minimize the use of kitchen, bath, and other ventilating fans or install a timer switch on them.
Install insulating gaskets behind electrical outlets and switch plates on exterior walls.
Caulk and weather strip doors and windows.
Caulk and seal leaks where plumbing, ducting or electrical wiring penetrates through exterior walls, floors, and ceiling.
Upgrade ceiling insulations to R-36 (higher R values mean greater insulation levels and thus more energy savings).
Insulate exterior heated basement walls to at least R-11.
Insulate floors over unheated areas to R-19.
Install storm windows over single pane windows.
Replace aging furnace, when needed, with an energy efficient model.
Replace single pane windows with energy efficient double pane windows mounted in non-conducting window frames.
Open windows at night to bring in cool night air; close them during the day.
Close drapes during the day.
Shade west facing windows.
Draw cool night air into the house with a whole house fan.
Use room air conditioning only where needed and install energy efficient models.
Install a central system air conditioner only when whole house air condition is needed.
Maintain an air conditioned house at 78 °F or higher using a programmable thermostat to set the temperature higher during the day when no one is home.
Regularly change air conditioning system filters and clean the condenser.
Plant deciduous shade trees on the west and south sides of your house.
Repair leaky faucets.
Reduce the temperature setting of your water heater to warm (120 °F).
Install low-flow showerheads.
Add an insulating blanket to your water heater.
Wash clothes in warm or cold water using the appropriate water level setting for the load.
Replace water heater, when needed, with an energy efficient model.
Major & Small Appliances
Maintain refrigerator at 37 - 40 °F and freezer at 5 °F.
For cooking small meals, use toaster ovens or microwaves.
Adjust the flame on gas cooling appliances so it's blue, not yellow.
Replace a gas cooling appliance with a unit with an automatic, electric ignition system.
Run the dishwasher in the evening with a full load of dishes.
Air dry dishes in a dishwasher.
Regularly clean the lint filter on your dryer and inspect the dryer vent to ensure it is not blocked.
Shut down home computers when not in use.
Select appliances (i.e. curling irons, coffee pots, irons) with time limited shut off switches.
Replace aging major appliances, TVs and VCRs when needed, with energy efficient models.
Compare the annual energy consumption and operating cost for each appliance by looking at the bright-yellow and black
Energy Guide label when shopping for new appliances.
Turn off light when not in use.
Use task lighting whenever possible instead of overhead lighting.
Install compact fluorescent lamps (CFPs) in fixtures.
Television & Electric Fan
Turn off fan and TV sets when not in use. When set is off, unplug it when a transformer is used.
Keep in mind that running several sets at the same time multiplies your entertainment cost.
If comfortable enough, set the fan at "low".
When the fan is needed in one direction only, lock the oscillator. This way, air is blown directly where it is needed.
Keep appliances in good working condition so that they will last longer, work more efficiently and use less energy.
Turn off lights in any room not being used.
Light-zone your home. Concentrate lighting in reading & working areas and where it's needed for safety (stairways, for ex.).
Reduce lighting in other areas, but avoid very sharp contrasts.
Clean lamps or bulbs regularly to get more light. Dirt diminishes illumination by as much as 50 percent.
A clean dry cloth could easily accomplish the job.
Gas discharge lamps (mercury, flourescent or sodium) are more efficient than incandescent lamps.
Save on lighting energy through decorating. Light colors for walls, rugs, draperies and upholstery reflect light and therefore reduce
the amount of artificial light required.
Turn off flourescent lights and remove its starter or bulb when it starts to blink.
Change ballast when flourescent lights continue to blink even when switched off. A worn-out ballast not only causes high electric
bills but it also poses danger.
Use lamp with correct voltage. If lamps are burned at higher than rated voltage, it will give more light but lessens its life. If burned
at less than rated voltage, it gives longer lamp life but reduces illumination.
Used flat bottom pans with light covers. Flat bottom pans minimize heat transfer losses.
When cooking, use lids on your pots and pans and as soon as it boils, turn heat control to a low setting just enough to maintain
Cut time on cooking rice by washing the rice and adding the right amount of water 2 or 3 hours before cooking time. By the time
you'll cook it, the rice grains have softened.
Monitor high-wattage cooking appliances such as toasters, coffee makers, etc.
A deep fryer draws more wattage than some room air-conditioners. A toaster consumes twice as much power as an automatic
Use firewood, coconut husks, etc., instead of electric burners or cooking gas where practicable.
Clean regularly the rubber tube of the LPG stove to avoid gas leaks. Rats and mice tend to nibble those greasy particles that have
splattered on the tube while cooking and they may consequently bite into the rubber.
Thaw frozen foods thoroughly before cooking, unless instructions are to the contrary.
If your cook with electricity, get in the habit of turning off the burners or oven several minutes before the allotted cooking time.
The heating element will stay hot long enough to finish the cooking for you without using more electricity.
Match the size of the pan to the heating element. More heat will get the pan; less will be lost to surrounding air.
When using the oven, make the most of the heat from that single source. Try to plan oven meals to accommodate more than one
dish at a time. Avoid peeping. Heat is wasted with each peep.
When buying a gas oven or range, look for one with an automatic (electronic) ignition system instead of pilot lights. An average of
up to a third of your gas could be saved-41 percent in the oven and 53 percent on the top burners.
Defrost your refrigerators regularly. Frost acts as an insulating blanket which causes the motor work overtime, resulting in
increased power consumption.
Don't leave the refrigerator door open longer than necessary.
Check the gaskets around the refrigerator door. Adjust the door or replace the gasket if there are leaks. To check the door for air
leaks, close the door on paper money. If you can slide the money out easily, you need to replace the gasket.
Clean periodically the compressor units and condenser coils at the back or bottom of the unit.
Cool foods to room temperature before storing in the refrigerator. Placing warm food in the refrigerator increases the temperature
inside, therby increasing power consumption.
Place the refrigerator far enough from the stove or range so that it will not be affected by the heat generated from the cooking.
Install it where air can circulate freely around it.
When buying a refrigerator, remember that a frost-free model needs more energy than a standard model.
Don't overcrowd your refrigerator. This interferes with air circulation and overworks the compressor.
Use your electric iron efficiently. A hand iron consumes more power than a colored television set.
When you are almost through ironing a pile of clothes, unplug the iron. There will be enough stored heat in the iron to press a few
Avoid heating the iron for just one piece of clothing to be pressed. It wastes the heat accumulated in the iron.
It is more comfortable to do the hot job in the morning when it's cooler. It also avoids peak demand hours for electricity.
Don't set your thermostat at a colder setting than normal when you turn your air-conditioner on. It will not cool faster. It will cool to a
lower temperature than you need and use more energy.
Check your filters at least once a month. When the filters are dirty, the fan has to run longer to move the same amount of air, and
this takes more electricity.
Turn off your window air-conditioners when you leave a room for several hours.
Use a fan with your window air conditioner to spread the cooled air farther without greatly increasing your power use. But be sure
the air-conditioner is strong enough to help cool the additional space.
Don't place lamps on TV sets near your air-conditioning thermostat. Heat from these appliances is sensed by the thermostat and
could cause the air conditioner to run longer than necessary.
Keep air-conditioned room less cool. Make proper use of thermostat to regulate the temperature. Don't keep resetting the
temperature or turning it on and off.
Check the doors and windows of air-conditioned rooms for leaks. Drape the windows with heavy materials or use blinds or
shades to keep warm air and direct sunlight out of the window. It will remove disturbing glare and reduce sun's heat input into a
room by up to 80 percent.
Check your filters at least once a month. A clogged filter reduces the cooling ability of your unit.
Keep doors closed at all times. Minimize the traffic of people going in and out of the room, especially children running in and out
Locate your air-conditioners in the coolest side of the room. The best is usually the northern side, away from the morning and
According to statistics, fires and burns are a leading cause of unintentional injury and related deaths in the home and the work place. Fire safety and survival begin with everyone in your place being prepared. The best way to be safe from fire is to stop it from happening. Nearly all fires in the home can be prevented. When people learn what causes fire and how to prevent them, they can make their home much safer. The most common fires happen, when people make mistakes using appliances and things that burn.
Here are a few of the ways you can prevent fire in your home:
Avoid using jumper wires in lieu of fuse or circuit breakers. Do not use solid/stranded wire or tin foil “palara” for a fuse. Circuit beakers or fuse sockets are placed to protect the electrical system of a household.
Only adults should burn candles. Blow out the candles if you leave the room or go to sleep. Use holders that can’t burn and won’t fall over. Place candles where children and pets can’t reach them. Place them away from things that can catch fire. Do not let children have candles in their rooms.
It is too dangerous to leave matches or lighters where young children can get them. Keep them locked away. Don’t leave them in purses or in the pockets of your clothes.
• Use the right light bulbs in all lamps and light fixtures.
• Look inside the light fixture. Find a label that tells you which light bulb size (wattage ) is right for the fixture.
Safe Electrical Systems
• The electrical outlet in the bathroom should have a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI). This is a tool that protects you from a
dangerous shock when water and electricity come together. An electrician can install a GFCI for you.
• All electrical outlets and switches should be covered by “faceplates”.
• All electrical cords should be in good condition.
• Don’t tie or knot cords. Don’t let furniture sit on cords.
Small Appliances Safety
• Look for the Import Commodity Clearance (ICC), and/or Philippine Standard (PS) marks on the label when you buy electrical
appliances (such as toasters, microwaves or coffee makers) and cords.
• Unplug toaster ovens, coffee makers and other small appliances after using them.

(Sundin ang mga sumusunod na pag-iingat sa sunog na dahilan sa kuryente)
1. Check regularly your electrical installations, and have all frayed wiring, damaged socket, switches, and other defective electrical fixtures changed or repaired promptly. (Palaging siyasatin ang mga linya ng kuryente. Palitan kaagad ang mga putol at sirang kawad ng kuryente, mga sirang saksakan o “switches” at iba pang mga gamit pangkuryente).
2. All electrical installations, repairs and changes should be undertaken by competent individuals. Only licensed electricians should be allowed to undertake such work. (Pagkakabit at pagpapalit ng mga piyesa sa kuryente ay ipagawa lamang sa lisensyadong “electrician”).
3. Never run electrical cords under rugs. Cords of portable appliances should be as short as possible. (Huwag padaanin sa ilalim ng “carpet” ang kawad ng kuryente. Gumamit lamang ng maikling kawad ng kuryente para sa mga “appliances”).
4. Do not overload your electrical circuits by profusely putting extra lights and appliances. (Iwasan ang pagkakabit ng sobrang ilaw at gamit de-kuryente upang hinde pumutok ang “fuse”).
5. Combustible and other flimsy material should not be placed near bulbs. ( Ilayo ang mga bagay na madaling magliyab sa mga bombilya o ilaw).
6. Do not replace blown or busted fuses with coins, wire or metal to short circuit the current. Lighting circuits should be equipped with 15-ampere fuses. (Huwag palitan ng “coins”, kawad o bakal ang mga pumutok o sira na “fuse”. Gumamit lang ng 15 amperes na fuse para sa mga ilaw).
7. Use only approved types of electrical appliances, and equipment. Do not improvise them. (Gumamit lamang ng mga aprobadong kagamitan pang kuryente).
8. If you find electric irons, fans, or other appliances faulty, have them checked by an expert and have them repaired at once. (Ipasiyasat at ipaayos sa mga bihasang “electrician” ang mga sirang plantsa, bentilador, at iba pang kagamitang de-kuryente).
9. Do not allow your electrical irons to over heat, nor leave them with the current on. (Iwasang mag “overheat” ang inyong plantsa at huwag itong iwanan na nakasaksak).
10. Never touch an electrical appliance while you are in bath, or standing on a grounded metal or object that is a conductor of electricity. (Huwag hawakan ang mga “appliances” habang naliligo o nakatayo sa mga bakal at sa mga bagay na madaling daluyan ng kuryente).
11. Keep the electrical elements of appliances dry. Never immerse electrical appliance in water. (Panatilihing tuyo ang mga “appliances” at huwag basain ng tubig).
12. Use convenience outlets in the wall, not lamp sockets, for connecting electrical appliances. (Ang mga “appliances” ay isaksak lang sa mga saksakan na nakakabit sa dingding at hindi doon sa saksakan ng bombilya o ilaw).
13. Don’t stand in the puddle or on a deep floor when connecting electrical laundry appliances. (Huwag yumapak sa sahig na may tubig habang nagkakabit ng mga “laundry appliances”).
