I’ve just found out that MERALCO has adopted an online system wherein you can check your electricity bill online as well as opt to received billing updates via email. You can go to the MERALCO website and click on Sign In to e-Meralco (popup window) to know more about the service.
For those of you who are new to paying Meralco online you may had to spend a couple of minute figuring out which SIN (Service Identification Number) to use like what happened to me. Apparently you’ll be using the ATM / Phone Reference Number as your SIN as shown below.
They should modify their bill and label it accordingly to avoid confusion.
That aside the system provides all the information found in your printed out bill, along with a billing history and status of your payment. The service and entire website for that matter is far from “polished” but it does work… which is the bottom line in most cases.
