Meralco announces lower electricity prices this holiday season

Meralco continues to lower power rates toward the end of the year as the overall rate for a typical household decreased by P0.0352/kWh to P8.4753/kWh this December.  


This is equivalent to a decrease of around P7 in the total bill of residential customers consuming 200 kWh. 


This month’s overall rate is also a net rate reduction of P1.3870/kWh, equivalent to bill reduction of more than P277 for a 200-kWh household, since the start of the year. It is also the second lowest overall power rate since September 2017.


MERALCO continues to serve during GCQ


Customers may visit their nearest Meralco Business Center, which will keep its doors open during the General Community Quarantine (GCQ), and accept service applications, payments, and other transactions.

As featured on this month’s Meralco AdvisoryMeralco has also made paying the monthly electricity bill even more convenient, as only the Customer Account Number or CAN—which is printed on the bill—is needed during payment.
