Atty. Dan Pondevilla, general manager of Manapla-based Northern Negros Electric Cooperative, Inc. (NONECO, formerly VRESCO) told Negros Daily Bulletin (NDB) last night that his office received a revised and adjusted PEMC-WESM September billing that reduced by 50 the sudden increase in the September bill.

Pondevilla said the rate increase prior to yesterday’s 50 percent adjustment could have resulted to a billing for each NONECO consumer of about P13.90 per kWh from just about P10/kWh.

"I am checking with other electric cooperatives in the Visayas if their September bills were also adjusted and reduced. Even with the 50 percent reduction, still the rates are too high and we, with other power coops will review this new adjustment," he told NDB.
