Accounts unpaid or paid after the due date will bear a Late Payment Charge (LPC)/ surcharge of 2%, which will be added to your next bill.

Accounts paid after the due date may still be included in your next bill, but please disregard them.

As provided for in Davao Light’s contract of service on over due accounts, the company will discontinue electric service to your premises unless full payment is made on your total overdue accounts as of the time of payment within 48 hours from the first receipt of a Notice of Disconnection.

To avoid disconnection, please pay only at our accredited customer service centers by Trans Pilipinas Power and Automation, Inc., at SM Supermarket, SM Department Store, SM Business Services Counter, SM Hypermarket and Save More, 2GO Outlets (Gaisano Grand Citimall, Gaisano Mall, Victoria Plaza, SM City, NCCC Mall, Sasa Main Office), Cebuana Lhuillier (all outlets nationwide), EC Pay Collection Partners (NCCC, HB1, The Paper Tree, E-link, C5 Dormitel, Cecile Kristine's Pawnshop, Aeromania Propeller Overhaul, Pronto Mart, Greenfield Mktg., Accredited Sales Distributor, Cignal Office, Prime Asia Pawnshop, Enterprise Bank and Clickster Game Station), CIS Bayad Center Collection Partners (CIS Bayad Center, eBIZ, Mail and More, USSC, Villarica Pawnshop, PhilPost and Robinsons Supermarket and Department Store) and Globe Gcash.

Acceptance of a partial payment, issuance of other disconnection notice with updated amounts or any other event short of full payment does not interrupt, renew or reinstate the 48-hour grace period for payment nor does it affect the company’s right to disconnect service.

Linemen are not authorized by the company to accept payments from its customers.
