The Central Negros Electric Cooperative has extended the grace period for its consumers who failed to settle their September electricity bill.
In an advisory yesterday, Ceneco reiterated that the Bayanihan to Recover as One Act provided for a 30-day grace period for electricity bills falling under the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) from September 8 to 30 in Bacolod City.
“Payments can still be extended up to three months if the said bill remains unpaid,” it said in the advisory.
The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has yet to issue the implementing guidelines pertaining to the provision of the Bayanihan 2 Act, it added.
Meanwhile, Ceneco said it will continue to issue a notice of disconnection and implement its regular schedule of disconnection activities.
Member-consumer-owners are encouraged to pay their bills on time especially those not covered by the grace period, it added.
They also assured their consumers that Ceneco will consistently abide by the orders or advisories of regulatory agencies such as the Department of Energy, ERC, and the National Electrification Administration.*
