A total of P2.8 billion in energy infrastructures were damaged due to Super Typhoon Rolly.


Most of the damaged infrastructures in the energy sector were electric posts and transmission lines, Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said.


Power supply in the entire Bicol region went down since the weekend during the onslaught of “Rolly”.


Cusi said two transmission lines were connected to partially energize Naga City in Camarines Sur.


“There were two transmission lines, the transmission lines from Tayabas to Naga and from Naga to Concepcion, have been restored and this will partly energize the Naga area,” he said.


The energy chief added some 19,000 customers were still out of electricity as of Nov. 2 from over 53,000 affected customers this morning.
Of the 45 distribution lines that were affected due to the typhoon, 25 are already in normal operation, Cusi said.
