Electricity Rates Set To Increase this February According to Meralco

MERALCO – The Manila Electric Company announced that there will be an increase on electricity rates this February.

One of the things that are part of the monthly household budget of most Filipino families is the electricity bill. The electric supply is really important in our everyday lives.

The importance of the supply of electricity is somehow mirrored when power interruptions happen. Many people can’t stand having no power supply for several hours.

However, every family is also accountable to their power consumption as electric bills must be paid monthly to the electric distribution company that covers their area.

In Manila, the electric supply is provided by the Manila Electric Company or more commonly known as Meralco. It was previously called Manila Electric Railroad and Light Company – where it got its acronym.

Recently, Meralco made an important announcement about the increase in the electricity rates to be expected this month of February. Based on a report on Radyo Inquirer, a P0.57 centavo-increase per kilowatt hour is expected.

According to the power supply company, the generation charge increased to Php 1.00 that is why there will be an increase in the electricity rates.

Meanwhile, the company also revealed that the other charges decreased so only Php 0.57 centavos would be added as increase on the rates of electricity.

Based on the report, a Php 114.00 increase in their electric bill can be expected by those who are consuming 200 kilowatt hour every month. For those who consume 300 kilowatt hour, Php 171.00 will be added in their bill.

If your household consumes 400 or 500 kilowatt hour monthly, there will be an increase of Php 228.00 or Php 285.00 respectively on your monthly electricity bill.
