Noceco hikes power rates

Electric consumers in southern Negros can expect a higher adjustment on their electric bill this July as the Negros Occidental Electric Cooperative has increased its power rates.

Jonas Discaya, general manager of Noceco, said the new residential rate for this month was P12.2510 per kilowatt hour (kWh), which is P.09602, or 7 percent higher compared to last month’s rate at P11.2908 per kWh.

The higher electricity rates this July are due to the P0.7205 per kWh increase in the generation charge, from P6.4070 to P7.1275 per kWh, he said.
