Generator sets and solar panels were prepared by the Commission on Elections (Comelec)-Central Visayas and the Department of Energy Visayas Field Office for areas in Bohol province that still lacked power supply after the recent typhoon Odette.
Lawyer Dennis Ausan, the regional director of Comelec-Central Visayas, said only 91 percent of the power supply in Bohol has been restored.
For now, it is relying on the temporary towers built by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) to supply power after typhoon Odette damaged its two transmission towers.
The DOE assured Comelec-7 that there will be no more problems with power supply in other parts of the region such as Cebu, Negros Oriental and Siquijor.
