0 81

Ilocos Norte Electric Cooperative (INEC) released an advisory announcing the increase in electricity rates in the province this May.

According to INEC, there will be an average of P1.87 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) hike in charges to be applied this month.

The total unbundle residential rate for May will be at P14.18 per kWh, compared to the P12.31 in April, reflecting the difference of P1.87.
While the generation charge (GC) last month was at P8.45, it increased to 10.19 this month. The GC comprises 71.88 percent of the consumer’s electric bill, INEC said.

INEC engineer Edwin Corpuz said in Ilocano that the increase in electricity costs was due to the rise in generation charges of independent power producers.
