The Department of Energy (DOE) is set to lead the turn-over of projects for the recovery, rehabilitation and energization of Marawi City and six coastal municipalities in Lanao del Sur on Thursday, May 17.

Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi, who will lead the ceremonial switch-on, said that six coastal municipalities of Lanao del Sur would finally have electricity after six years.

The DOE will also hand-over to Lanao del Sur Electric Cooperative (Lasureco) the solar streetlights donated by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for the benefit of the residents in the Sagonsongan Temporary Shelter in Marawi City.

The department will also hold recognition rites for the various partners and donors in appreciation of their efforts in rebuilding Marawi after the siege.

ISIS-Maute terrorists attacked Marawi for five months until October last year, leaving hundreds of people dead and tens of thousands of residents displaced.

The event on Thursday will be held at the Mindanao State University in Marawi.
