Grace Poe on Meralco Bill

Still reeling from the COVID-19 backlash, the last thing our consumers need are shocking electricity bills that could throw them off-track anew.

While we recognize the efforts of Meralco to explain, the confusing billings and unusually high charges have left many households in distress, especially those who lost their sources of income due to the lockdown.

We ask Meralco to issue a final and correct billing based on accurate meter reading of the actual kilowatt-hour consumption.

Until such accurately updated bill indicating exact staggered due is received by customers, it is proper that they hold off payment.

This should come with the assurance that our people will not be disconnected from service, while they are stuck at home during the quarantine.

As the company sorts out our billings, they should keep our lights on as uninterrupted power supply is crucial to run life-saving equipment in hospitals and to keep people connected.

Malasakit ang panawagan ng ating mga kababayan sa gitna ng patong-patong na pagsubok at bayarin.
