Meralco Refund








Good news everyone! After the ever hyped and ever loud controversy on electricity over pricing by Meralco, the government now comes with a resolution that shall put some silver lining on this issue. Manila Electric Company's (MERALCO) is set to dole out 2.7 Billion worth of refund for meter deposits.

Meter deposits have been collected not just by Meralco but by other electricity company as well. The collection started 1995 until outlawed in 2004. This basically means that these meter deposit portions on our electricity bills are unjust.

Now, any patron should just present proof of billing and some identification documents to redeem the refund. The payments of refunds shall run in six months. The amount is PHP 800.00. Some may say that its not even enough to buy a new plasma but in this stiff times of the economy, I’d say every peso saved is a peso earned. Poetical? Go figure.

The banner is cool. I miss the green though.....

Nways, the refund is definitely a good news but is a very temporary fix in the problem of very high cost of electricity in the Philippines. I think we are next to Japan in terms of the most expensive electricity rate in ASIA.

I hope they can privatize NAPOCOR soon so that everybody could experience a reduction in their electric bills for good......

good enough but not fair enough..
it helps but not the solution..
they should do something on how they can control the rates of our electricity.. we're even paying more than what we consumed..
