Sana All: PELCO III to shoulder March bill of 10,453 consumers

APALIT, Pampanga – Did we hear you just say “Sana all”?

The Pampanga III Electric Cooperative (PELCO III) will shoulder the March 2020 electric bill of a total of 10,453 residential consumers, according to PELCO III General Manager Maria Elizabeth Urbano.

In an interview, Urbano said they were able to accumulate an estimated P2.7 million from cancelled activities such as their Annual General Membership Assembly to allot for the electricity grant. 

“This is in support to the Pantawid Liwanag project of National Electrification Administration and Philippine Rural Electric Cooperatives Association Inc. to alleviate the burden of our consumers amid COVID-19 [coronavirus disease] crisis we are all facing today,” Urbano stressed.

The grant, however, only qualifies those who have consumed 50 kilowatt-hour or less.

For consumers who are not qualified for the grant, Urbano revealed that they will implement a four-month staggered payment scheme for their March electric bill. 

Recently, PELCO III also provided support to the local governments and frontline workers combating the spread of the deadly disease.

“We have turned-over 50 sets of personal protective equipment to the Pampanga Premier Medical Center in Apalit from voluntary donations of our employees,” Urbano revealed.

She also added that they have also distributed 30 cavans of rice to each local government units of their franchise areas which are the towns of Apalit, Macabebe, Masantol, San Simon, Minalin and Sto. Tomas.

Moreover, Urbano asked for cooperation and understanding among consumers in its commitment to provide support for them amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

PELCO III main office and area offices remain operational to serve consumers especially for those who wish to settle their payments.
