you wouldn't be the first business owner I ever met that worried about electric prices. It's a bind. You have to advertise and use lights to promote the business. All that costs.

Yes, exactly, that is why i am poor now. :shocked: But its the way it is. My Signpost with a standard SMB sign ( 3x 60w )and a little attachement of 2x60w neon tubes cost about 150 pesos per month. runs on a timer switch 5 hrs/day and got his own meter/connection, so basic costs are included.

 

This would approximately be the costs of a "poor" Pinoy house too.(TV and Lights) If they have a Ref, it increases by 300-500 Pesos /month. For Karaoke box add another 200 pesos with daily use.

in a just and proper world electricity meant for refrigeration would cost less and that for karaoke would cost more.

 

exorbitantly more...
