ERC orders and decisions on rates now accessible in online Generation Rate Database
10 May 2023/ Planning and Public Information Service
PASIG CITY - The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) enhanced its online Generation Rate Database, allowing easy access to ERC's orders and decisions that served as the basis for the generation rates implemented in the different franchise areas across the country. This improvement follows the ERC's launch of its Generation Rate Database on its website on May 3, 2023.
The online Generation Rate Database provides information on the approved generation rates per Distribution Utility (DU), per region in the country, and per technology used to source electricity.
With the improved database, consumers will be informed of generation rates implemented in their franchise areas and the ERC's orders and decisions approving the rates. Meanwhile, industry participants, such as DUs, will have access to benchmarking information that can aid in their decision-making processes when contracting power supply agreements. The database also ensures that DUs are aware of the maximum tariff allowed to be collected from consumers in case of Emergency Power Supply Agreements (EPSAs).
To access the database, internet users can visit the ERC official website at https://bit.ly/44QpGVF. Users are advised to regularly check the database for changes in reference rates, as the data will be updated from time to time.
