Calapan Councilor RL Leachon complains of high power bills despite frequent brownouts
Calapan Councilor RL Leachon can’t even get ready for work properly because of frequent power outages, and yet her electricity bills are very high.
Leachon aired her complaint about the service of Ormeco as she shared photos of her two power bills, one of which amounted to more than P15,000, and the other close to P25,000.
She could not believe how much she had to pay, considering that her family had not been at home for 18 days, she said.
She wanted to know how Ormeco conducted the reading.
She also said she would be okay with paying the high rates if the service was good, but this is not the case.
Leachon also lamented that the Ormeco representative arrived late during the council’s hearing on its service.
What happens to its customers now, she asked.
Even if people have generators, the fuel costs are high, she noted.
She appealed to Ormeco to find a solution to the power woes.
Have pity on Mindoreños!
“Yung nagbibihis ka para pumunta sa duties mo for today, tapos biglang ‘brownout,’ at ng mag breakfast ka nakita mo ang bill mo? Talagang nakakastress! Ang laki ng bill, considering 18 days kaming wala sa aming tahanan.. pano nangyari? Di ko na malaman kung pano sila nag re-reading. Okay magbayad ng mahal kung ayos ang serbisyo! Pano yan ORMECO, palpak talaga eh
nakakaiyak! May Commiittee hearing sa Sanggunian Panlungsod kahapon patungkol sa Serbisyo ng ORMECO kaso di na naman kami napagbigyan kasi huli sa takdang oras ng dumating ang representante. Ay pano na tayo nyan? Kada brownout kahit may gen set eh ang mahal ng krudo. Nag babayad ka na sa power, bili ka pa ng krudo ay double kill na. Lahat na ay nanawagan, sana naman ay aksyon agad na solusyon. Di natin ito dapat ipagpawalang bahala!Awa nyo na sa Mindoreño!” Leachon posted.
