Are MERALCO Residential Customers At Risk?
This post actually wrote itself: the complaint of a residential customer of MERALCO, the Lopez family-led largest electricity distribution firm.
But his is not of narrow interest given that it could very well be what others are going through.
Let me quote the inputs from complainant Robert Young:
Do you know Meralco is allowed to supply us power with voltage range of 207-253 volts? One time a Whirlpool technician tested thee voltage at my place and it registered 265 volts. Appliance can get fried at high voltage, specially electronics like computers. Attached is a letter from Meralco regarding my complaint.
If you have an electric clock, you will notice it runs faster because of the high voltage.
My three rechargeable vacuum got fried because of Meralco’s high voltage. It’s not true my voltage read 240v when their inspector came.
They just say that in the letter.
The situation needing resolution is self evident,
Let me just add my hope that MWRALCO’S public affairs team, led by Mr. Joe Zaldarriaga and the indefatigable Dina Lomotan plus and their Corp Comm SVP Elpi Cuna will act speedily, as is their trademark.
