MANILA, Philippines — Power distributor Meralco announced on Wednesday (September 15) that electricity rates this month of September have slightly increased due to higher generation charges.

Meralco said this month’s rates will increase by P0.11 per kilowatt-hour.

This is equivalent to a Php 21 increase in the total September bill of the majority of homes consuming 200 kWh.

Meralco made the announcement of the power rate increase despite a previous appeal from the House of Representatives to waive such additional charges as it would add yet another burden to consumers given the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
