“May kaunting liwanag tayong nasilayan.”

This was Senator Risa Hontiveros’ reaction to the announcement of power distributor Manila Electric Company that it will implement a relaxed “case-to-case basis” policy for disconnecting consumers unable to pay their bills.

The senator made the statement as Meralco responded to her earlier appeal for leniency and flexibility for delinquent Meralco consumers. The power distributor also committed to “exhausting all means to avoid disconnection of its consumers.”

“Nagtitiwala akong patuloy na magbibigay ng konsiderasyon ang Meralco, lalo na sa mga kababayan nating hirap makabayad ng kuryente,” she said.

While this is a laudable move, the senator still lamented that the “real problem” is the high price of electricity in the country.
