No disconnection of power and water services during quarantine
Meralco and Maynilad continued operating 24/7 to ensure the lights are kept on and water remains flowing at all households. At the start of the ECQ, Meralco immediately assured the public that no disconnection will happen while the quarantine was in effect. It even extended this policy to the end of the year to all customers and until end-January 2021 to customers consuming 200 kWh and below per month. Maynilad, for its part, suspended all meter reading and disconnection activities during the ECQ, ensuring customers have uninterrupted access to water which is necessary for handwashing and fighting COVID-19.
Flexible payment terms for customers
Affordability is central to MPIC’s overall mission of contributing to national progress and improving the quality of life of millions of Filipinos, given the country’s economic circumstances.
Meralco extended the grace period for paying bills which benefited more than three million customers consuming 200 kWh and below per month, or 47% of Meralco’s customer base.
Maynilad also offered a grace period for bill payments by providing a three-month installment plan for bills payable during the ECQ from March to May and during the Modified ECQ in August, that extended upto year-end.
ikotMNL mobile app is a digital one-stop source of information for passengers traveling Metro Manila via LRT-1, and now via LRT-2, rolled out by LRMC. The app enables users to plan their trips ahead of schedule as it provides data on actual train arrival and departure times, fare information, crowd situation at train stations, detailed directions on tourist spots, safety reminders, and real-time advisories and announcements. It also features a chat box for customer service assistance and feedback. In 2020, ikotMNL allowed passengers to activate contact tracing using Bluetooth LE technology.
