MANILA - Customers of the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) will again see lower electricity bills this month.

Meralco said on Wednesday that its overall rates for October are lower by P0.13 per kilowatt hour (kWh) compared to last month's rates due to a decrease in generation charge.

The rate adjustment translates to an overall drop of P26 for a typical household consuming 200 kWh.

This is the sixth straight month that Meralco rates went down for a total reduction of P2.26/kWh during the period. -- Report from Alvin Elchico, ABS-CBN News
