Bizmen slam
‘energy cartel’

BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

Businessmen in Negros Oriental lambasted what they call an energy cartel by big players who are controlling the market.

Roy Cang of Bethel Guest House described as “horrible and very cruel” his experience with his electric bill from February to May this year that went up by more than 25 percent against the usual rate before the privatization of the Philippine National Oil Company.

The power rate issue dominated discussions on the provincial review and assessment on the two pending petitions for salary increases conducted yesterday by the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board in Negros Oriental.
