The Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) has assured its 7.8 million customers of continuous, reliable, and stable electricity service throughout the Holy Week break.

While Meralco Business Centers will be closed from March 28 to 30 in observance of the Easter Triduum, the power distributor’s personnel will be ready 24/7 to attend to customer concerns on electricity service. All Meralco Business Centers will resume operations on April 1 (Monday).

“We are one with the nation in observing a solemn and safe Holy Week. As a 24-hour service company, we assure our customers that our crews are on standby to attend to concerns and unexpected power interruptions,” Meralco Vice President and Head of Corporate Communications Joe R. Zaldarriaga said.

With the Holy Week coinciding with the start of the dry season, Meralco also reminds the public to practice electrical safety and energy efficiency for a safe and worry-free break.

For those going out of town, unused appliances should be unplugged especially when going away for several days. Refrain from using “octopus connections” or plugging in extension cords into a single power outlet as this could overheat and result in fire and other accidents.

Avoid placing and running electrical cords under rugs or carpets as constantly walking on these could damage the insulation of the wires. All wires and cords should be kept organized, tucked, and stored away; and electrical equipment and devices should be placed far from showers, sinks, and tubs.

Meralco also empowers its customers to better manage their electricity use with the help of the Appliance Calculator available in the Meralco Mobile App which provides information on the power consumption of gadgets and appliances.

To report electricity service concerns, customers may reach Meralco through its official social media pages on Facebook ( and Twitter (@meralco). They may also text their concerns to 0920- 9716211 and 0917-5516211 or contact the Meralco Hotline at 16211 and 8631-1111.
