Bacolod SP urges Ceneco to explain rate increases

BY CHRYSEE G. SAMILLANO

The Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod is urging the management of Central Negros Electric Cooperative (Ceneco) to provide the SP the computation table for the electric generation charges and power systems losses for January to April.

The SP also asked Ceneco to explain its increases in generation system charges.

The resolution authored by Councilor Wilson Gamboa Jr. said that Section 23 of Republic Act 9136, or the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001 (EPIRA), and Section 4 (h), Rule 7 of the Implementing Rules and Regulation (IRR) of the EPIRA provide that a Distribution Utility (DU) should supply electricity in the least cost manner to its captive market within its franchise area, subject to collection of retail rates duly approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC).

It was found out that the generation system charge from January 2022 compared to April 2022 increased to almost double, from 4.0891 per kilowatt hour to 7.346 per kilowatt hour, for residential member owner consumers, it said.

The resolution added it is proper for Ceneco to update and explain recent increases in electrical generation system charges.*
