P 1.00 per kWh total reduction on Meralco Bill for February 2020



           

After the holiday season, one of the things that may have hit your wallet hard is your electricity bill., the aftermath of those parties and holiday lights that made the celebration memorable and fun. You can only wish that you can get a discount on your electricity bill.

You don't need to wish for it since there is great news for us consumers! For the second month in a row, the Manila Electric Company (Meralco) announced a decrease in
power rates for February.



The overall rate for a typical household consuming 200kWh decreased by P0.59 to P8.86 per kilowatt-hour (kWh), its lowest level in two years, from last month’s P9.45 per kWh. Such a household will see a decrease of around P118 for their total electricity bill this month.

The reduction is mainly due to a lower generation charge after the implementation of new Power Supply Agreements (PSAs) starting last December 26.

The back-to-back rate decreases to start the year total to P1.00 per kWh and goes against the usual trend of February rates increasing, as seen in the previous five years.



The generation charge for February decreased to P4.51 per kWh thanks to Meralco’s prudent and strategic partnerships with power suppliers and the resulting new PSAs, such as San Miguel Energy Corporation, South Premiere Power Corporation, and AC Energy, who charge a lower generation cost. Charges from the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM) were also lower this month.

These lower prices from the new PSAs and the WESM—which accounted for 44% of the total supply—offset the cost of power from Meralco’s Independent Power Producers and old PSAs, which increased to P5.29 per kWh.

With these new PSAs providing lower generation costs, the public can expect consistently low power bills with energy-efficient use of appliances and devices at home, allowing for a bigger budget for other household and family needs.

Energy efficiency tips for customers

As we approach the summer months, Meralco encourages its customers to continue practicing energy efficiency initiatives at home to help manage their electricity consumption, such as:

  •  Such as unplugging appliances when not in use to avoid “phantom load”
  •  Using the aircon at mid-setting or 25 degrees Celsius
  • Using a power board or strip which can supply power to several appliances at once
  • Maximizing natural light during daytime 
  • Keeping appliances well-maintained to ensure optimal performance. 


Let's be responsible for using electricity in our homes and let these tips guide us in a more efficient way of utilizing our appliances for us to get more savings on our electricity bill.

Tigdas/Measles: Mga Sintomas, Pagkain at Lunas

Pagkatapos ng Dengvaxia incident maraming magulang ang natakot na pabakunahan ang mga anak ng libreng bakuna na inaalok ng DOH Health Centers. Yung iba sa atin hindi na pinabakunahan ang mga anak laban sa measles, tetanus, rubella at cervical cancer
(HPV).

Nito lang week dinala namin uli si Chelsea sa Pedia nya dahil sa pabalik-balik na lagnat at ang napansin ko na rashes sa may bandang dibdib at tyan nya. Sinabi sa amin ng doctor na patuloy namin obserbahan si Chelsea dahil maaring mayroong Measles outbreak, sapagkat 3 na sa kanyang naging pasyente ng araw na iyon ay postive sa measles.

Nagdeclare ng measles outbreak ang DOH sa Zambonga City noong February 2018, 495 na kaso
sa Davao city starting from January-September 2108, at barangay sa taguig
noong March 2018.
