Since 1977 the DORECO has been not only a mere catalyst, but a strong pillar of progress and economic development both in the urban areas and in the countryside of the Province of Davao Oriental. With just a loan from the government as its sole capitalization, DORECO has grown to deliver electric service even to the remotest areas of the province. Today, as a result of the solidarity and progressive orientation of its workforce, the DORECO is determined to become a strong cooperative, capable of surviving the incoming era of a deregulated and highly competitive power industry.
