The residential rates for April of the Negros Occidental Electric Cooperative that supplies power from Pulupandan to Hinoba-an towns in the southern part of the province, have increased by 50 centavos per kilo watt hour, an official of the electric firm confirmed Saturday.
Shiela Marie Gerosa, officer-in-charge of the corporate planning division of NOCECO, said that from P9.8166 per kilowatt hour in March, the residential rate is now P10.3210 per kilowatt hour.
Gerosa said that since KEPCO-SPC Power Corporation was down for at least 17 days last month, they supply only 5 megawatts instead of 10 so NOCECO had to get the needed electricity from the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market.
