Ceneco hit for inaction on complaints

Consumer group Power Watch Negros Advocates slammed the management of the Central Negros Electric Cooperative for its alleged inaction on the complaints of consumers over the “sudden increase” of its power rate charges during the lockdown.

Wennie Sancho, secretary-general of Power Watch, claimed that Ceneco failed to keep its promise to clearly explain the surge in the monthly bills of its member-consumers during the lockdown to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Hundreds of consumers were stunned over the increase in their monthly electric bills, he added.
