Bayan Muna to COA: Probe Meralco for bill shock

Bayan Muna is not satisfied with the P19-million fine imposed by the Energy Regulatory Commission against Manila Electric Co. over the inconvenience suffered by the power utility giant’s customers due to the wild surge in their monthly bills.

In a statement, Bayan Muna said the penalty was just a slap on the wrist for Meralco, adding that customers would not really feel any relief.

“Barya lang ang sinasabing multang ito sa Meralco at di pa nga sa mga consumer ito mapupunta,” Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate said.

“Ang dapat talagang mangyari ay magkaroon ng full audit ang Meralco na gawin ang Commission on Audit para magkaalaman na kung magkano ang dapat nilang isoli sa mamamayan lalo pa at kailangang-kailangan ng mga consumers ngayon ng pera o di man lang kaya ay di na pagbabayad sa kanilang bills maski isang buwan,” he added.
