Power rates in the three electric cooperatives of Negros Occidental are higher this month compared to December, records showed yesterday.

The Northern Negros Electric Cooperative increased its rates by P0.2931 per kilowatt-hour, or from P11.2996/kWh in December to P11.5926 this month, Central Negros Electric Cooperative by P0.1717/kWh, from P11.1810 to P11.3527/kWh, and Negros Occidental Electric Cooperative by P0.1881/kWh, or from P10.2394 to P10.4275.

Corporate Planning Division head Paul Almedilla said yesterday that the increase in power rates of Noneco were attributed to the generation cost fluctuation by P0.3265/kWh, increase in transmission/systems loss cost by P0.0782/kWh, and a decrease of other charges like lifeline rate and taxes by P0.1128 due to the cessation of stranded contract cost.
