Act on complaints of consumers
or face charges, Ceneco warned

Labor and consumer groups are giving the Central Negros Electric Cooperative until the end of next week to act on their complaints, or they will push through with legal charges against the utility firm.

Wennie Sancho of Power Watch Negros said yesterday they are waiting for Ceneco to initiate a dialog with them and the consumers to explain the “sudden increase” on the utility firm’s power rate charges during the lockdown.

He said they will invite the consumers to join them in their complaint.
