Crew Therapy, a 6-man team led by lead lineman Rene Quimo, treks the mountains of Poblacion, Kibungan to bring power to 32 homes in sitios Lipucan, Abbas, Tanap and Mayos.
The 5.06 million project is under the Sitio Energization Program of the government thru the National Electrification Administration (NEA). BENECO has been the pioneer in bringing electricity in the remotest areas in Benguet when it started an EC-initiated rural electrification way back in 2008 when it energized 108 sitios through NEA borrowings. Team Therapy members include Joshua Bonggawen, Marlon Duy-ac, Casmer Manalo, Neptali Nevada and Limbert Walang.
