Important Reminders  : 

Important Reminders  The M.A.C computation is based on MERALCO residential electricity rates which are being updated on a monthly basis. This computation is an estimate based on assumed data. The computation results of the M.A.C may slightly vary from the actual consumption reflected in the MERALCO customer’s monthly electric bill and therefore, the M.A.C computation results should not be used in any way for billing purposes, complaints, claims, or suits against MERALCO, its officers, employees, agents, subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers and other partners. The M.A.C should not be used by any person to estimate electric consumption of appliances and/or equipment used for non-residential or business or commercial purposes.
