Meralco announced that the residential rate for a typical household will go down this September by around PhP0.0451 per kilowatthour (kWh), thereby bringing it down to PhP8.46 per kWh. This translates to a reduction of around PhP9 in the electricity bill of a household with monthly consumption of 200 kWh.

This month’s overall rate is lower by PhP0.09 per kWh compared to September 2015’s PhP8.55 per kWh.
