Ceneco rates down in June

The Central Negros Electric Cooperative Inc. announced yesterday that its residential rates this June dropped by 92 centavos.

Ceneco general manager Jose Taniongon said the rate for this billing month was at P10.2716 per kilowatt hour from P11.1923/kWh in May, or a decrease of P0.9207 per kWh.

The reduction was attributed to the decrease in the fixed cost component of the power supply contract with Kepco-Salcon Power Corp., as well as the lower price in the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market, he said.
