MANILA - Manila Electric Co, the country's largest power distributor, said Monday it would increase rates this month by P0.03 per kilowatthour.

This will translate to a P6 increase in the monthly bill for those who consumer 200 kwh per month, P9 for P300 kwh, P12 for 400 kwh and P15 for 500 kwh.

Meralco blamed the adjustment on higher generation charges, or the cost of power from producers. -- report from Alvin Elchico, ABS-CBN News
