Meralco ready for 2019 midterm elections

06:41 PM May 09, 2019

The Manila Electric Company (Meralco) said that it has prepared its 300 crew personnel, more than 150 generator sets, and 300 floodlights to provide power and lighting to polling and canvassing centers that might be affected by unexpected power interruptions for the upcoming elections. In line with this, Meralco also reminded those who will be manning the polling and canvassing centers to avoid plugging in unnecessary appliances to avoid overloading and octopus wiring.
