The country’s largest electricity distribution utility has just announced that the overall electricity rates for the first month of the year are now down to P9.84 per kilowatt-hour (kWh), which is lower by P0.34 per kWh from prior month’s P10.18. This translates to P68 savings in electricity costs for typical households consuming 200 kWh of electricity per month.

 

This decrease was brought about by lower generation charges from Meralco’s Power Supply Agreements (PSAs) with power generation companies. Historically, movements in electricity rates are driven by generation charges which are pass-through charges, meaning these are only collected by Meralco in behalf of entities like the power generation companies.

 

Among these pass-through charges are transmission charges paid to NGCP, and taxes and other public policy charges that are remitted to the government. Meanwhile, Meralco’s distribution, supply, and metering charges – the only charges that count as Meralco revenues – have remained unchanged since July 2015.

 

For this month’s episode of Meralco Advisory, Meralco also encourages its customers to download the Meralco Mobile app to be notified of bill updates, view their monthly bills online and be updated of the latest on Meralco services. The Meralco Mobile app is already available on iPhone App Store and Google Play. View the latest Meralco Advisory video here: https://youtu.be/CUrndT9qg_c

 

To further help its customers manage electricity consumption, Meralco reminds household consumers to continue energy efficiency practices. These helpful habits include unplugging appliances when not in use as they still consume energy when plugged in; adjusting aircon units at mid-setting for maximum efficiency; using a power board or strip as this allows a user to conveniently turn off several appliances with just one switch; maximizing natural light during daytime; and, last but not the least, keeping appliances well maintained to ensure optimal performance.

 

For more helpful tips, customers may visit Meralco’s website at www.meralco.com.ph or its social media accounts, Twitter @meralco and Facebook at www.facebook.com/meralco.
