The Department of Energy (DOE) said customers can pay their electricity bill by installments during the months under the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

Based on the advisory released by the Energy Department, electric bills with due dates from March 15 can pay in installments for four months once the ECQ is lifted.

“Binigyan po natin sila ng panahon para bayaran (We gave them time to pay [the bills]) after the ECQ in four equal installments,” according to DOE Sec. Alfonso Cusi.

There will also be no additional fees for the consumers. According to Cusi, this is to ensure that consumers affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic won’t have difficulty in paying their bills.

“Para sa ganoon po naman, medyo hindi magipit ang ating mga kababayan sa pagbabayad nitong mga nakonsumong kuryente sa kanilang mga bahay-bahay po, (This is to not burden our fellowmen in paying the electricity they consumed in their homes)AAC (with reports from Vincent Arboleda)
