Colder days and nights makes electricity rates go down

MERALCO says electricity rates go down this August


Summer is over and the rainy days have come in. Storms have been passingby the Archipelago and cold winds are staying. The highest point on your monthly consumption falls during the summer months where you will need more artificial cooling such as electric fans, airconditioning and even more times going to the fridge and getting something to cool you off.

As we go near the “BER” months, expect lower bills. Meralco announced that after three consecutive months of reduction, the overall rates for its residential customers this August went down by PhP 0.26 per kWh. This brings the total reduction to PhP 1.56 per kWh over the past four months. This month’s reduction also marks the sixth time this year that rates have gone down. In the photo, Meralco Public Information Office Head Joe Zaldarriaga explains that the reduction in the overall rates was primarily due to a decrease in the generation charge.
