Electricity rates up

December 10, 2018

THE Manila Electric Company (Meralco)  yesterday announced a rate hike of P0.0902 per kilowatt hour (kWh) for  this month. 

Meralco said for a household consuming 200kWh, this will mean an adjustment of at least P18 in the total bill and P27 for those consuming 300 kWh.

The adjustment is mainly due to higher Power Agreement (PSA) and Independent Power Producer (IPP) charges raising the generation charge.
