Hi ERC! 

My previous request with tracking number #ERC-986174575792 was marked successful, however, the document sent contains inaccurate information. E.g of wrong information: as per the document you sent, MERALCO has 766 number of Qualified End-users as of Nov2019, but last March2019 it was already at 1,813 QEs.

 Please send the correct information for the following details :

1. List of Distribution Utilities with Net-Metering Connections
2. Total Number of Qualified End-users per Distribution Utility
3. Total Rated Capacity (kW) per Distribution Utility

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Estrada

We wish to clarify that on the basis of your request lodged on the eFOI portal on Dec. 12, 2019, the date of coverage indicated was 01/01/2019 – 11/30/2019, with Tracking No: #ERC-986174575792. It was on that basis that your request was processed which covered the said 11-month period.  Hence, the data that we have provided you earlier is accurate.

We also noticed, however, that your reply to ERC on Jan. 2, 2020 indicated a different date of coverage, which is 01/02/2013 – 02/02/2020 with Tracking No: #ERC-802195661492. The said variance in the date of coverage may have caused the discrepancy in the figure that you might have expected to get from us.

Please note that what we have provided you are those QEs with duly issued COCs for the period January 1, 2019 to Nov. 30, 2019 as per your original request.

It is our belief that we have successfully addressed your query on the basis of the original date of coverage you have specified in your request sent via the eFOI portal.
