Protest vs. increase in
power rates aired

The P1.50/KWH increase in power rate being imposed by Central Negros Electric Cooperative for January and its pending rates increase application with the Energy Regulatory Commission are being opposed by the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan.

Bayan Muna Rep. Neri Colmenares yesterday said they will file an intervention/opposition against application of CENECO with the ERC.

CENECO and Panay Energy Development Corp have asked ERC to approve the terms of the settlement agreement between them, authorizing PEDC to charge and collect from CENECO P192,064,798.50 in electricity fees, and authorizing CENECO it to pass the full amount to its consumer-members.moremoremore
