Logout of the app and tap Appliance Calculator on the bottom right corner.
Enter your average monthly bill amount.
Pick an appliance from the drop-down menu and tap Set. It will then show you the appliance’s wattage.
Choose the number of hours, days, and weeks in a month the appliance is used.
Tap Calculate. You’ll see the electricity cost per hour, day, week, and month of your appliance.
Due to the enhanced community lockdown, your bill for the period of March 17 to April 14 will be determined by the average monthly consumption for the last three months. The difference will be computed in the succeeding bills after the lockdown.
Aside from the Appliance Calculator, the Meralco Mobile app also has the Orange Tag feature that will help you choose power-efficient appliances. The Orange Tag is a performance validation seal found on appliances that displays their cost per kWh. Here’s how you can explore the Orange Tag feature from the Meralco Mobile app.
Open the Meralco app and tap Orange Tag below, beside the Appliance Calculator.
To read more about what an Orange Tag is, tap What is Orange Tag.
To find out the details found on the Orange Tag, tap Understanding Tag.
