MORE Power is temporarily suspending all disconnection activities while Iloilo City is under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) classification due to COVID-19 crisis.
In a press statement, MORE Power said that they are implementing the ‘no disconnection’ policy in consideration of the plight of Ilonggo consumers.
“Sensitive to the concerns our customers are facing amid these challenging times, we are suspending all disconnection activities to legal consumers while Iloilo City is under the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) to allow a period for relief and additional time for our customers to settle their bills,” MORE Power said.
Iloilo City’s power distribution utility added that they will resume the disconnection activities once the MECQ is lifted, except on areas under surgical and total lockdown.
Other activities such as meter reading and bill delivery will not be hampered even under MECQ, it added.
Iloilo City Mayor Jerry P. Treñas thanked MORE Power for “listening to the call of the public and promote the greater good of the community.”
“I sincerely thank MORE Power for supporting the local government in easing the situation while we are under MECQ. They have pledged to suspend all disconnection activities until our quarantine status is lifted. During this time when staying home is the best way to stay safe, having consistent electricity to fight the weather will definitely help encourage our fellows to stay in their houses,” Treñas said.
