Camiguin – powerless again!
Camiguin lives a difficult week. Electrical power comes and goes in a furious rhythm. The worst, even public utility companies such as CAMTECO do not have auxiliary power supply.

Problem Number 1
The electrical power situation in Mindanao is now known for years. There is not enough production and there is no network redundancy. The result is that the electrical power supply collapses anytime.
Problem Number 2
Even if we produce electricity ourselves with solar panels and a generator for peak performance, we only have a very poor Internet access. The SMART 3G network in Agoho does not have enough capacity to provide reliable Internet connection. The local telecom company, CAMTECO, is completely down when there is no power.
We do not complain, we just want you to know why we cannot be reached and why our updates are often very late. Enjoy the sunny day.
