I have been hearing lots of rumors. The only thing that I have found is the attachment. Which says that Olongapo will be disconnected from the National power grid tomorrow.

I have heard that the new Mayor has offered a payback plan but it was declined.

I don't want to get into the politics of this but it boggles the mind that no criminal charges are being filed for the embezzlement of $120M of services.

In other areas of the Philippines the power has been cut to cities and towns for non-payment. In Olongapo is seems unlikely but I would not be surprised.
If you are living there now, this might be a good day to invest in a large enough generator to power lights and air-conditioner. Either that or be prepared to get a hotel inside of the SBMA free-port till they get things sorted out.


Best of luck

Generators have been flying off of the shelves over the last few weeks... I am sure that their prices will go up if not already...

Hi

I Just spent a lot of money on my daughter's Baptism and could only afford a 1000W generator so the kids can at least watch tv and have a electric fan running, 41k was the cheapest big generator I saw and that was at Ayala. Is there no other place that stock generators around here? DIY is sold out and SM is even more expensive on there generators. I am planning to move to Binictican after my next rotation within the next 2 months if all goes well anyway.

a few month ago I looked at getting a biggish one but desided against it, now the price for the same one in SM is almost double already, I think in Pampanga or Clark will be cheaper

That would be your best bet. Head up to the Angeles area and look for a cheaper one.

Well if I were a betting person, I'd bet they will let it go off and then take care of the problem. Never know around here. Guess that's what keeps life interesting here in paradise. Hahaha...
