The Universal Charge and Accounts Management Department (UCAMD) of Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management (PSALM) Corporation conducted its one-on-one face-to-face Universal Charge (UC) Reconciliation Activity with six Luzon collecting entities (CEs) on 08 May 2024 at PSALM Kalayaan Hall, 10th floor Vertis North Corporate Center 1, Quezon City.  


The following CEs, composed of one (1) private distribution utility and five (5) electric cooperatives, participated in the said activity:

  2. Pampanga I Electric Cooperative, Inc. (PELCO I)

  5. Nueva Ecija II Electric Cooperative, Inc. - A-2 (NEECO II – A-2)

The UC reconciliation between PSALM and CEs’ books addressed specific concerns and resolved UC-related issues of CEs with the ultimate objective of arriving at reconciled balances of CEs and PSALM's books of accounts for each of the five UC components. CEs are likewise encouraged to religiously comply with the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC)-approved Guidelines and Procedures Governing the Remittances and Disbursements of UC, generally known as “UC Guidelines”, as amended, particularly on the timely remittance of UC and submission of UC reports to PSALM.


The UC reconciliation is in compliance with Section 8(a)(2) of the UC Guidelines, requiring PSALM, acting in its capacity as administrator of the Special Trust Fund accounts, to reconcile each component of the UC billings, collections and remittances with the books of accounts of CEs.
