Davao Light and Power Company recently hosted its annual Customer Appreciation Night, which remarkably happened last November 29 at the Marco Polo Hotel in Davao City.

This early Christmas celebration is one way of expressing Davao Light's gratitude to its contestable customers or the Power Heroes who have given their genuine partnership and support throughout the year.

The Davao Light executives as headed by its EVP and COO, Arturo Milan, were present to warmly welcome and celebrate the night with the guests.

Representatives from various huge companies within the Davao Light franchise were present to grace the event.

Furthermore, local government officials from the cities of Davao and Panabo and the municipalities of Carmen, Dujali and Sto. Tomas also attended th

e event. This includes Municipality of Carmen Mayor Daniel Batosalem, Jr., Panabo Vice-Mayor Biboy Gavina and Davao City Councilor 

Diosdado Angelo A. Mahipus Sr. who delivered a meaningful speech on behalf of Mayor Inday Sara Duterte.

To the Power Heroes, I can't thank you enough for being with us during the Mindanao power crisis and for giving your full support. We would have had not surpassed the power crisis if not for your utmost participation in the ILP and this truly proves why you all deserve to be called Power Heroes.”, said Milan during his message.

The companies that were recognized during the event are

Tagum Agricultural Development Co., Inc., Davao Packaging Corporation, Davao International Container Terminal, Coca-Cola Femsa Philippines, Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc., Davao Bay Coconut Oil Mills, Inc., New Davao Oil Mill Inc., International Copra Export Corporation, Steelasia Manufacturing Inc., SM City Of Davao, SM Lanang Premier, NCCC Mall Davao, NCCC Main Magsaysay, Abreeza Mall, Victoria Plaza, Robinsons Supermarket Corp., Felcris Centrale, Gaisano Mall of Toril and Gaisano Mall of Davao.

A plaque of appreciation, which was the miniature of lines and poles with a transformer, was awarded to these companies as a token of gratitude and deep appreciation for continuously being part of the Davao Light's Interruptible Load Program (ILP).

During a power crisis, the participating companies in the ILP run their own generating sets instead of drawing power from the distribution system. The power, which they did not use will be distributed to smaller residential and commercial customers. On an average, around 4,000 customers will be spared from the rotating power outage for every 1 MW of power that is unused by large companies.

Indeed, it was a night of appreciation, friendship, and camaraderie and truly a night to remember!
