Noceco, Noneco decrease rates
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA

The Negros Occidental Electric Cooperative and the Northern Negros Electric Cooperative have decreased their rates this month.

Jonas Discaya, general manager of Noceco, said the new residential rate for this month is P8.5426 per kilowatt hour (kWh), or a decrease of P0.5139 per kWh, from P9.0565 per kWh in April.

He said the main driver of the lower electricity rates is the P0.4653 per kWh reduction in the generation charge, from P4.5204 to P4.0551 per kWh.
