Davao Light

November 13, 2007

This is not a beer (like san mig lite light).

In Manila, you have Meralco.. In Davao, we have Davao Light.

Davao Light & Power Company or more commonly known as “Davao Light” is the company that supplies electricity to the whole of Davao City. This is one of the subsidiaries of Aboitiz – the known shipping company.

Founded in 1929 and acquired by Aboitiz & Company in 1946, Davao Light and Power Company is the third largest privately-owned electric utility in the Philippines. It holds the franchise for distributing electric power to Davao City, the largest city in the world in terms of land area, as well as Panabo City and the municipalities of Carmen, Dujali, and Sto. Tomas in Davao del Norte. On September 29, 2000, the franchise was renewed for another 25 years by virtue of Republic Act 8960.

Lying along the northwestern coast of Davao Bay, Davao Light”s franchise area covers Davao City and Davao del Norte”s Panabo City and the municipalities of Carmen, Dujali, and Sto. Tomas. The franchise”s total land area of 3,561 square kilometers encloses 264 barangays with 297,862 households. As of the year 2005, 99.6 percent of the barangays and 95 percent of the total households are now experiencing the convenience and benefits brought about by electricity.

I hope Davao Light would have a more catchy tag line instead of “Totally Committed to Customer Satisfaction”. Somewhat like Meralco’s “may liwanag ang buhay”.

Hmmmm.. any suggestions my readers?

Here are mine…

1. “Davao Light: We light a million evenings”
2. “Davao Light: Bringing light to your every evenings”
3. “Davao Light: Brightening your dark paths”
4. “Davao light: The bright light of the south”
5. “Davao Light: Charging you through the day”
hmmm.. mas maganda yata…

“Davao Light: Ang liwanag ng Davao” – nationalistic ang dating..


“Davao Light: Bumbilya mo, sindi ko” – PANALO!
