Redaniel went on to express his disappointment with Northern Davao Electric Cooperative, Inc. (Nordeco), the local electricity provider. He claimed that due to a series of power interruptions, he had to resort to purchasing solar oxygen equipment to sustain the koi fish in his pond.

Despite his efforts, the recent power outage lasted for more than a day, and he was not given any prior notice.

“Grabe, Northern Davao Electric Cooperative, Inc. . Almost 5 years nako gi-alagaan pero tungod sa inyong incompetent service, mao ni nahitabo run. 24hrs brownout. Grabe gyud,” Redaniel said.
