Like Petilla, new energy usec is also a Waray
MANILA - The Department of Energy (DoE) has a new undersecretary in the person of Raul Aguilos, a career officer and former director of the Land Transportation Office Region 7.
Undersecretary Loreta Ayson said Aguilos will report to work tomorrow, replacing lawyer Ina Asirit who is now a commissioner at the Energy Regulatory Commission.
When asked if Aguilos has any background on energy matters, Ayson admitted that Aguilos has none.
She said Aguilos is a certified public accountant and graduated with a degree in public management from the University of the Philippines Visayas-Tacloban.
Incidentally, Aguilos is also Waray like Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla.
Aguilos will be in charge of the power sector amid the deficiency in supply in Mindanao and the projected shortage of electricity in Luzon by 2015.
