Telcos, PECO have until Dec. to fix ‘spaghetti wires’, posts

first_imgILOILO City – Mayor Jerry Treñas hasgiven concerned companies until next month to fix “spaghetti wires” androad-obstructing posts. According to the BFP, the reasons for these incidents were dilapidated and ageing wooden poles and electrical wires and overloaded transformers of the 95 years old power utility PECO. They have no uniform plans for theircables, according to Estante, resulting to these wires dangling more like peskycobwebs. “Kalabanansang poste sang Panay Electric Co. (PECO) na-idog na nila,” said Estante. From January toOct. 27 of this year, BFP recorded 200 incidents of pole fires in thecity. Meanwhile, the Bureau of FireProtection (BFP) told the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) in a recenthearing that fromOct. 1 to 27, there were 12 incidents of pole fires. Estante’s proposed ordinance alsocovered posts – also by telecommunications and television cable companies –that have yet to be removed from widened roads in the city. Estante’s proposed ordinance compelstelcos, cable television companies and PECO to fix their unkempt wires and movepoles that have become road obstructions. In 2016, therewere 453 reported fire incidents, 360 of which were caused by faulty electricalconnections and 303 of pole fires.  In 2017, therewere 361 fires caused by faulty electrical connections and 275 polefires.  center_img “These are eyesores and pose danger tothe public,” said Estante. According to the councilor, PLDTconfirmed having around 49 poles yet to be removed from widened roads whilePECO has 10 left. Bedraggled wirings uglifying the cityare mostly cable wires of telecommunications companies and cable televisioncompanies, not power lines, a recent hearing of the Sangguniang Panlungsod’sCommittee on Rules found out. “Angkalabanan nga culprit sini PLDT (Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co.) gid,” according to Estante whoseproposed ordinance addressing the problem on “spaghetti wires” was tackled bythe Committee on Rules recently. In 2018, 301 fires were caused by faulty electrical connections and 233 are pole fires, and as of Oct. 27, 2019, there were already 253 fire incidents caused by faulty electrical connections and 200 pole fires. That is an average of 28 fire incidents caused by faulty electrical connections per month. “Konindi pa gid nila maareglo, sya (Treñas) na lang mang-utod,” according to Councilor Ely Estante. The tolerance of illegal connections or “jumper” is also a culprit to the fires caused by faulty electrical connections, it added. In the ERC hearing, BFP clarified that only electrical cables could cause fires and not telephone or cable TV wires, contrary to PECO’s justification./PNlast_img read more
