Rivera calls for energy conservation amid heat wave

General Santos City Councilor Jane Rivera has appealed for energy conservation as the city experiences a surge in electricity usage.

Rivera stressed the urgency to conserve energy as the local power distributor South Cotabato Electric Cooperative II warned that it may implement 30-minute load shedding due to unprecedented demand caused by high temperatures.

“Taos puso kong hinihikayat ang lahat na makiisa sa hakbang na ito ng South Cotabato II Electric Cooperative, Inc,” Rivera said.

The power firm warned that with the current weather condition, some of its distribution power substations may approach critical levels during peak hours.

Meanwhile, the state-weather bureau said the Soccsksargen region remains under the Extreme Caution category as the region is expected to hit 39-40 °C this week.
