Why does the relief discriminate between lifeline customers and non- lifeline customers?
customers are generally regarded as underprivileged with low electricity consumption.
Accordingly, since the economic hardships imposed by COVID – 19 are generally across
board, it is only prudent and proper that lifeline customers enjoy a total waiver
while the others enjoy a 50% rebate using their March 2020 consumption as the benchmark.

Yes, it affects all electricity customers except disconnected customers.
