GROUP LAUNDS ERC PLAN TO EXTEND ‘NO DISCONNECTION’ POLICY UNTIL END-2020

Consumers group Power for People Coalition (P4P) on Wednesday welcomed the plan of the Energy Regulatory Commission to extend until the end of the year the no-disconnection policy for electricity consumers who fail to settle bills.

“We are grateful that the clamor of Meralco’s residential consumers delivered results in the form of Senator Risa Hontiveros’ question and the ERC’s answer,” Gerry Arances, P4P convener, said in a statement.

During a Senate hearing on the ERC’s proposed P564 million budget for 2021 on Tuesday, Senator Risa Hontiveros asked if the moratorium on issuing electricity disconnection notices could be extended beyond the October 31 to December 31 deadline.

“‘Yan po ang nakalagay sa aming draft ngayon. Sinusundan din po namin ang spirit, not just the letter of the laws,” ERC Chairperson and CEO Agnes Devanadera said.
