Abstract:

This research focused on the prevalence of electricity power theft in areas covered by NEECO II- Area 2. The data from the Special Energy Recovery Group (Apprehension Group) revealed that there were 386 apprehended electric pilferers from 2014-2016 and that the towns of Sta. Rosa and San Leonardo recorded the highest number of consumers and also have the highest number of electric pilferers as compared to other towns covered by NEECO II – Area 2. Among all the types of electric theft, the jumper is the most prevalent in areas covered by NEECO II – Area 2 from 2014-2016. Based on data available, the towns of Sta. Rosa registered the highest number of electric power theft by means of jumper (91) and illegal connection (30), followed by the town of Gen. Tinio (42), San Leonardo (32), Peñaranda (32), Bongabon (23), Gen. Natividad (16) and the rest of the towns are minimal in number. By comparing the total number of electric power theft regardless of its type, the year 2014 registered the highest number of violators (173) and significantly decrease in the year 2015 and 2016 (119 and 95, respectively) and up to August 2017 (39). Based on the computation from the Special Energy Recovery Group (Apprehension Group) and that of the Finance Department, the total non-technical losses occurred from 2014-2016 was 6.50 % and it is equivalent to P81,464,791.83 or on the average P2,292,910.88 per month. Losses can be even higher because the actual non-technical losses cannot be easily detected, meaning the apprehended party might consume higher than the average consumption because as being said, it is electric theft.
