Meralco president and CEO Ray Espinosa told lawmakers on Monday that he would extend the suspension of disconnection notices for unpaid electric bills by one more month until Oct. 31.

This is to give consumers more time to pay their bills amid the difficulties posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I-eextend ko po ‘yung suspension ng disconnection notice hanggang end of October para mas mabigyan ng panahon ang ating mga customers na makalikom ng sapat na pambayad sa kanilang mga bills,” Espinosa said during a hearing of the House committee on good government and public accountability.

The chairman of the committee, Bulacan Rep. Jose Antonio Sy-Alvarado, welcomed the move.

“Mula sa chairman ng committee na ito, at mula kay Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, maraming salamat sa Meralco sa pagtugon sa mga hinaing,” he told the Meralco executive.

Espinosa also said there will be other forms of relief for consumers including P2.7 billion for small and medium enterprises and P1.9 billion in savings from the lowering of the generation charge.

He reiterated that Meralco had waived the P47 convenience fee for online payments.

He also said 2.77 million lifeline customers, or those in depressed areas, will also receive subsidies for their bills in the amount of P101 million.
