The Central Negros Electric Cooperative has extended the grace period for consumers from Bacolod City to pay their September electricity bills.
“Payments can still be extended up to three months if the bill remains unpaid,” Ceneco said in its advisory yesterday.
It reiterated that the Bayanihan to Recover as One Act provides for a 30-day grace period to settle electricity bills in areas under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ). Bacolod was placed on MECQ from September 8 to 30.
The Energy Regulatory Commission has yet to issue the implementing guidelines pertaining to the provisions of the Bayanihan 2 Act, it added.
Meanwhile, Ceneco said it will continue to issue notices of disconnection and implement 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.
It also assured 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.*
