The process of installing electrical connections only takes over a week at MORE Power while at CENECO it could take up to more than 3 to 4 weeks, says CENECO employee Sheena Lyn Diaz. She further explained that they were amazed by MORE Power’s excellent customer service, specifically the application process. The discrepancy may be chalked up to the fact that CENECO remains a cooperative, which demands many requirements that are sometimes difficult to accomplish. Because of this, their installation process considerably takes longer.

The CENECO employees also expressed their admiration for the state-of-the-art equipment of MORE Power. They said that it’s more modernized than the equipment currently used by CENECO, some of which has been in use in Negros for decades.

Mr. John Raymond Ortiz, a Leadman for Service Installation at CENECO, said that he has noticed that MORE Power has made considerable progress regardless of their being comparatively new in the industry. He further stressed that MORE Power has surpassed CENECO in many facets, particularly with their substations which display advanced technology like no other they have seen.
