Power is back in Garcia Hernandez and Jagna towns covered by the Bohol II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (BOHECO II) on Monday night, Jan. 3, 2022.
Residents here expressed their joy after two weeks of electricity after typhoon Odette ravaged the province and some parts of Visayas and Mindanao last Dec. 16.
The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) said the Tagbilaran-Garcia Hernandez 69-kilovolt line of the NGCP has been energized at 6:02 p.m.
It said the three distribution utilities-Bohol Light Company Inc (BLCI), Bohol I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (BOHECO I) and BOHECO– started to restore partial power services to limited areas under their franchises.
In a statement on Monday night, power distributor BLCI said it facilitated energization process to essential establishments only:
6:05pm – Feeder Alpha (along R. Enerio St. Going to J.A. Clarin St. to Plaza Rizal going to DCPNH)
6:50pm – Feeder Foxtrot (along L. Alba St., Banat-i Hill Road, Mansasa-Banat-i Road, G. Sanchez St., CPG East Ave. going to Katipunan St., E.K. Inting St., V.P. Inting St. going to whole of Bool Dist.

“But unfortunately at around 7:16pm, all energized feeders were trip-off due to technical problem,” it said.
