CEBU CITY: The Cebu Unplugged Campaign of the Visayan Electric Company (VECO) is spreading to the barangays next month as the company advocates a lifestyle habit to adopt energy conservation measures in the household as a long-term goal. VECO reputation enhancement manager Ma. Theresa Sederiosa said the Cebu City Council has adopted the program and will launch the campaign in July which councilor Nida Cabrera spearheads being the chairperson of the Committee on Environment. “Cebu Unplugged will now be implemented in the 80 barangays of Cebu City,” said Sederiosa who added Cebu Province already passed a resolution adopting the program authored by Provincial Board Member Peter John Calderon. “Cebu Unplugged” campaign lists eight ways to conserve energy of which the number one rule is to unplug appliances and electronics when not in use, because simply turning it off without unplugging it continues to consume energy. The other conservation measures listed are defrost refrigerator regularly to prevent build-up and cover up, and save on cooling cost by blocking sun’s heat with curtains.
