Power Supply and Electrification

        All barangays had already been energized however, with the topography of the municipality as mostly hilly to mountainous and the sporadic clustering of houses, there are still sitios that are not served with electricity. Power supply comes from Luzon Grid of TRANSCO which is being distributed by Nueva Vizcaya Electric Cooperative Inc. (NUVELCO).
