Pres. Aquino's Emergency Power @ Philippine Power Crisis

by: Psychic August

The nationwide power crisis within this year, as a result of the shortcomings of the people in charge of all the major power plants supplying the electricity needs of the country, will be felt more as the year progresses.

Fortunately,  this will be effectively addressed by the government.

President Aquino's request for emergency powers to expedite the otherwise long legal process to address the power crisis, will be approved by the Senate and Congress.  A woman law maker will be very visible as she argues for the granting of these emergency powers to the President.

It looks like Sen. Sergio Osmeña, Jr. will have his way, as the duration of these emergency powers will extend up to July 2016,  the same time the new power plants are expected to be operational.  Fortunately for the people, the resulting power rate hike will be shouldered mainly by the government, as Congress desires it to be.

The effects of the power crisis will start to be felt this coming summer, although more in the south than in the National Capital Region, and much less in Metro Manila.

By the second half of the year, the rotating black outs will be felt even less as the government begins to effectively address the problem, expedited by the granting of the emergency super powers upon the President.
