                    [Summary] => The Court of Appeals has stopped the unbundling of rates by the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco), which was approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) in June 2003.

This unbundling of rates caused an 8.65 centavo per kilowatt hour hike in electricity charges imposed on consumers.

In a 33-page decision penned by Justice Martin Villarama Jr., the CA remanded the case to the ERC for further proceedings.

ERC chairman Rodolfo Albano said the Commission has also completed the evaluation of 89 percent of the unbundling rate cases.

"Unbundling is such an enormous responsibility that the ERC had to focus on given the very short deadline set by the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA) and the Commission’s limited financial and human resources," Albano said.
