Albay power consumers lambast APEC

LEGAZPI CITY—Member-consumers of Albay Power Energy Corporation (APEC) are up in arms over the alleged grossly inefficient service of the power distributor.

Already, they have taken the fight not only to the streets, but also on social media, where they continue to air their gripes against APEC.

Their major concerns include double billing, overbilling, non-billing, and frequent power interruptions.

Currently circulating on Facebook are the two electric bills of a consumer named Joselito Arado for the period of June 2014.

One of the bills indicates that the generation system charge is 6.0090, for which the total amount is P4,143.31. However, another bill, which covers the same billing period, shows a generation system charge of 7.6911, which amounts to P5,014.

Another consumer says that she has been unbilled from February up to the present. She shared that her household’s electricity consumption reached P11,000 despite the fact that there was a power service interruption for 12 days, and no one was in their home for half the month.

There are also some who claim that APEC does not issue a receipt at the time of payment.

Said member-consumers stressed that their fight will continue until these matters are clarified by APEC.
In the meantime, they are calling for a boycott of products sold by San Miguel, the company which operates APEC. Further, they are appealing for power users to not foot their electric bills.
