ERC gives MVP-Gokongwei 5 days to explain, Meralco's shockingly high bills

The mounting different complaints from the consumers has pushed the Energy Regulatory Commission to issue a letter to the Manny V. Pangilinan led company Manila Electric Company (MERALCO) in five days to explain the shockingly high billings during the months where there is an enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) imposed.

ERC chairperson Agnes Devanadera said that the ERC was “bombarded” with a lot of complaints regarding the March, April dnd May billings of Meralco which is jointly managed by Manny V. Pangilinan and Lance Gocongwei.
“We required Meralco to submit to us data or information for us to validate the accuracy of their billing calculations,” said Devanadera.
These requirements include:

1) Basis of the determination of the kilowatt per hour consumption of the captive customers during ECQ;
2) Power bills issued by the suppliers used in the computation of the Generation Rate for the same billing period;
3) NGCP invoices used in the computation of the Transmission Rate for the aforesaid billing period; and

4) the Uniform Reportorial Requirement (URR) for the said billing period.
“This will enable the Commission to determine if MERALCO has indeed complied with the relevant rules issued by ERC, such as the Distribution Services and Open Access Rules or DSOAR, and implemented accurately the pertinent advisories that we issued on 15 April and 5 May 2020 relating to the implementation of Pass Thru Charges to the consumers,” said Devanadera.
“We are adhering to our mandate of ensuring that the interest of the consuming public is promoted and protected,” she added.
