May power rates dip due to ERC refund order

The electricity rates this month of May declined by P0.1200 per kWh ( Kilowatt hour ) to P10.0630 per kWh from P10.1830 per kWh last month, mainly due to the implementation of the refund order of the Energy Regulatory Commission ( ERC ). The slight reduction for the month is equivalent to a decrease of around P24 in the total bill of residential customers consuming 200 kWh, according to the Manila Electric Co. ( Meralco ).
