Before I received our Meralco bill this month, I had already seen, heard, and read the horror stories of my friends and fellow bloggers. Almost everyone’s bill doubled even if their consumption did not.
Our Meralco bill averages to P8,000+ monthly. We have one (1) refrigerator, two (2) air-conditioners (2hp and 2.5hp respectively), and two (2) multi-point water heaters. Two aircons are used nightly, one aircon for about 3 hours in the afternoon. We hardly use the water heaters these days since it’s so hot.
When I got home today, the dreaded Meralco bill was on our table. It was almost double the amount of our usual bill, a whopping P15,000+. Our consumption, however, did not double. At 815kwh, our bill was P8,311.20 — so why is it P15,682.50 at 1180kwh?
