Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Department of Energy (DOE) is to celebrate 2016 Consumer Welfare Month with the theme, “Consumer Protection: A Shared Responsibility.”

According to Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi, the month-long celebration aims “to fully realize the protection of the rights and welfare of every consumer, with particular focus on supporting our underprivileged and underserved kababayans.”

The DOE-CWPO invited the Manila Electric Company (MERALCO), Consumer Rights for Safe Food (CRSF) and Sun Life Financial Philippines to talk about consumer-related topics in their respective fields.

WHEN: October 18, 19 and 20, respectively at 1:30 p.m.
WHERE: PNOC Mini Theater and DOE Training Room.

Specifically, MERALCO will discuss about “Kuryente Load” and “Net Metering” which are the new trends in the electricity sector. The Kuryente Load is a prepaid electricity system that aims to provide consumers an alternative way to save on their electricity consumption. Net metering on the other hand, is the company’s response in supporting the country’s thrust for renewable energy development in the household level.

The CRSF will orient consumers on genetically modified organisms and effect to humans and animals, while Sun Life will conduct a free financial planning seminar to attending participants.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Consumer Fair will be featuring products from S&R Membership Shopping and Dunkin Donuts, livelihood products and religious articles, home-made deli, eco-friendly baby diapers, locally-made clothing and toys, and gift items, among others.

WHEN: October 11 to 13, 2016 (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)
