Meralco’s September rates to go up

Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) rates for the month of September will go up by P0.18 a kiloWatt-hour (kWh) due mainly to higher power-generation and transmission charges.

This follows a cumulative reduction of P0.65 a kWh during the past two months. The average residential customer with 200-kWh monthly consumption will experience an increase of P36 in electricity bills for the month of September. - WealthSec
