You have the power to choose.
The Retail Competition and Open Access (RCOA) allows customers in a contestable market to decide where they source their electricity. This paved the way for retail electricity suppliers like Mabuhay Energy to offer unique and customizable pricing schemes for its customers!
How it works:
Contact us at
Call us to find out if you qualify for RCOA as a contestable customer. You can reach us at +63917 3105245 or email@example.com. We can also address all other questions and concerns about switching to a RES.

MECO offers a seamless transition by handling all the legal and commercial documents for market registration and switching. We ensure convenience and stress-free switching.
Switching to savings with Mabuhay Energy
You’ll start enjoying the benefits of reliable and affordable electricity as our partner.
Billing and Payments
Distribution and transmission charges are paid to us as your RES, and we then forward the payments to the relevant parties such as the Distribution Utility (DU), the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), or other designated payees.
Mabuhay Energy’s Unparalleled Pricing Schemes
Your price is based on the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market’s rate with a minimal retail supply margin.
By carefully analyzing your usage pattern and load profile, we can offer you a rate that is tailored to your peak and off-peak operations.
Seasonal Time-of-Use Pricing
Similar to the Time-of-Use Pricing, this pricing scheme offers you a set electricity rate for certain seasons in the year that best suit you.
A common pricing scheme where we offer you a fixed electricity rate for the duration of your retail supply contract.
An elaborate pricing scheme that bases your electricity rate on a formula calculating the FOREX rate and our choice coal price indexes.
Your rate is calculated using Indexed Pricing for your baseload. Your rate for the consumption in excess of your baseload is calculated with Market Pricing.

What our customers say
“Mabuhay Energy has been helping us since last year and made us see how much savings we could have realized had we switched to them sooner. This is why when one of our meters qualified for the Phase 3 of the RCOA we immediately signed another account with Mabuhay Energy even when the first meter was just awarded to them a month prior"
Cracker Boss | President, Monde My San
"Aside from the competitive price, we decided based on the merits of the contract and how Mabuhay Energy was able to provide flexibility in the off-take which is what we really need at this time.”
