ERC orders Meralco refund of customers’ overpayment


The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) ordered the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) to refund the overpayment of customers last December, a news report said.

ERC executive director Francis Juan said many customers have already paid the over P2 generation charge, the first of the three-part installment of the P4.15 per kilowatt hour rate hike, which was put on hold by the Supreme Court via a temporary restraining order (TRO).

“May mga customers sila na nagbabayad o nakapagbayad nung full amount kasama ‘yung deferred balance kaya’t ang Meralco ay nagsabing ibabalik niya ang mga sobrang naibayad na ito sa kanyang mga customer sa pamamagitan ng credit to bill,” Juan said.

Meralco, meanwhile, will not include the deferred payment in the March billing to avoid confusion.
