Bill support


The rebates on energy and water bills announced after the power supply breakdown brought about by the passage of Typhoon Hato will start being provided in October.
Any October invoice from local electricity supplier Companhia de Electricidade de Macau, S.A. (CEM) will receive a MOP1,500 (US$186) reduction, while bills from Macao Water Supply Co. Ltd. for October and November will be reduced by MOP500, the Macao Foundation stated.
The total amount of MOP2,000 was announced one day after Typhoon Hato hit Macau on August 23, as a measure to reduce the impact of the typhoon on the local population.
More than a quarter of the MSAR land area – 29 per cent – was flooded due to the event, with the water level estimated to have reached 5.5 metres high in the Inner Harbour area of the Macau Peninsula.
A preliminary estimate provided by the MSAR Government last week established losses caused by Typhoon Hato at MOP11.47 billion, with MOP8.31 billion in direct losses and MOP3.16 indirect losses. with Lusa
