Noneco rates up, Noceco down
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
The Northern Negros
Cooperative has slightly increased its rates this April, while
consumers of Negros Occidental Electric Cooperative can save on their
bills with a decrease in its charges.
Paul Almedelia, Noneco corporate planning department manager, said there is a slight increase of P.0858 per kilowatt hour (kWh) this month, from P10.7079 per kWh in March to P10.7937.
The adjustment was attributed to the generation cost that increased by P0.1042 due to the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market price, as well as the increase of P0.0208 in the transmission cost and system loss charge.
