Meralco holds off meter reading, billing delivery

Manila Electric Company announced Friday it is deferring the conduct of meter reading and delivery of bills to households amid the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine to contain the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

“Due to the enhanced community quarantine, Meralco is holding off on physical meter reading and billing deliveries,” the power distributor said.



“For customers with meters scheduled to be read from March 17 to April 14, billing will be estimated based on your average consumption for the past three months, as prescribed by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC),” Meralco said.

“The difference will be reflected on your next bill and corresponding charges will be adjusted,” it said.

Meralco has earlier announced a 30-day payment extension for subscribers.

It said bills covered by the extension include those due from March 1 to April 14.—AOL, GMA News
