POWER SUPPLY ASSURED BUT… — While the Benguet Electric Cooperative has assured its members and consumers of a sustained power supply as a result of an emergency supply power agreement with Lima Power, it announced an increase in the monthly bills of households due to an increase in the transmission charges by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines. Foremost to be affected are those who consume an average of 100 kilowatt hour a month, as they will pay an additional P46.39/kWh, including value-added tax. — Harley Palangchao
