Over 23,000 households in General Santos City now have legal electrical connections, the local government said.
The City Housing and Land Management Office (CHLMO) said the provision of legal connections of the households was done under the city government’s “Oplan Pailaw Program.”
CHLMO distributed certificates to the beneficiaries of the program Friday, March 22, at Purok 9, Upper Labay.
It said that around 17,942 households were granted legal electrical connections in 2017 in addition to the more than 8,000 applications in 2017 and more or less 4,000 for this year.
