Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) announced on Thursday, Sept. 6, a decrease in electricity rates for September by P0.1458 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to P10.0732 per kWh from P10.2190 per kWh.

The decrease translates in a reduction of around P29 in the monthly bill of a typical household consuming 200 kWh.

“We are pleased to announce that despite the recent figures released on inflation and a slight depreciation of the Peso, Meralco customers can find some relief in the decrease of power rates this month, as this goes against the current trend that we see with other basic goods and commodities,” said Meralco Spokesperson and Head of Public Information Office Joe Zaldarriaga. — Victor V.
