ERC slaps Meralco a P19-million fine over pandemic overcharge issues



Wazzup Pilipinas!

"The Energy Regulatory Commission  (ERC) imposed a P19-million fine against Meralco “for failure to clearly indicate bills were estimated” and “failure to comply with the mandated arrangement.”

The fine is in relation to the ”bill shock” experienced by several customers of the utility."



Meralco’s neglect to provide accurate and timely information especially during this time of pandemic has created chaos and confusion to most of the electricity consuming public," says ERC Chairperson Agnes Devanadera.

The fine was also due to the utility giant's failure to comply with the mandated installment scheme for settling quarantine arrears.

Meralco spokesman Joe Zaldarriaga said it will study the ERC’s order and will file the appropriate pleading after consultation with its lawyers.


Ayan, malamang greedy at corrupt kasi ang management. Wala kayong lusot sa ginawa ninyo Meralco. Obvious naman na you wanted to cheat the people amid the pandemic. That is how cruel you are on imposing huge amount of bills just because you have a monopoly of the provision of electricity.

Ngayon ay dadaanin ninyo sa mga liars este lawyers parsa ilusot kayo sa kaso.

Meralco will just find a way to pass this to its consumers. Ang laki ng monthly bills namin this pandemic. More than our average.

Ibalik na lang sa consumers yung sobra or maling charges. Baka sa gobyerno na naman mapunta yung pera namin.

Meralco consumers appeal for extended payment deadline for lockdown bill while several had been complaining about absurdly high electricity bills when even some were not at home.
