Ceneco said in an advisory that due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) threat, the health of its member-consumers is their concern.

“In view of the leniency of our power suppliers and the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines in extending the due dates of power bills, Ceneco is likewise extending the due dates of the electricity bills,” it said.
