Meralco recently announced that overall electricity rates this June went down by P0.13 per kilowatthour  for its residential customers.   Households consuming 200 kWh each will experience a reduction of around P25 in their electricity bill. Meralco Public Information Office head Joe Zaldarriaga  explains  that the overall rate decrease was due to the downward movement in the generation charge, which more than offset a higher transmission charge. Meralco also reiterated some safety tips to help prevent accidents this rainy season.
