What is your current electric rate, where you live?

Recommended Posts

spooks

November my bill was 7800, this month it is 13300

 

No xtra appliance, no xtra running time of appliances

 

KWH is a measure but it does not really justify the difference in costs for same usage in terms of appliances and time those appliances run..

 

in Uk terms 180GBP for one month for a power bill in a very modestly sized house would be regarded as on the expensive side

In Bonifacio Global City (NCR) Philippines, this is what I paid last month (was there 19 days):

 

Pr:Mar 26 40357-Cu:Apr 26 40911=554x1.00xP9.78 (554.00 x 9.78)

 

...don’t understand what it means but I paid Php5,418.12… :D

For those who reply to this, please include the state or province, and country you reside in when writing your post, and what your bottom line rate is per kilowatt hour. To be clear, that will be the rate you pay, after all taxes, line, and other charges have been added to your bill. 

 

Here in Cambodia, it varies widely. I have seen rates anywhere from 720 riel (.18c US) to 2,000 riel (.50c US). At our apartment here in Battambang, the current rate is 1,700r (.425c US) but should only be 1,000r (.25c US). The owners here tend to add to the basic rate, to make money off the tenants.

 

Lilo-an Cebu. Philippines.   11.031    (this is after the taxes and usage is added NO EXTRA CHARGES)

     Our last bill, here in Iligan city, was about 3,300php but we got an air condition installed in our room last month. Prior to that the electric bill averaged 1,500php. I cant complain about the electric bill here compared to what I was paying in the USA. Still, I thought the electric bill spike was a little much so i just had the air conditioned cleaned today. It wasn't a new one, which I wanted to buy, but I gave in to what she wanted. I think she is realizing that my way would have been better in this instance.

You may be paying more than you were in the states. I imagine you are paying - at least .25c US / kWh for your power. Check your bill's bottom line to see.

When I lived in Ramos Tower, the electricity was directly from the Building owner, not from the electricity company.

 

The rate was 12 pesos per unit.

In Texas outside Houston: (my bill * 43) / kwh = 5.26 pesos. I was talking to someone in the Philppines (a white dude) yes but your 120 we are 220 so you need to double it. ROTFL he was serious.

Just tell him yes but you are also using double the amps, so it comes out even.

Our month of May Meralco Bill NCR of Luzon 

Our fault, we are not very frugal!

Some of our neighbors have higher usage, I would hate to have their electric bill! 

What's bad, we still may have a heat wave til maybe the middle of June!

The key is your usage of 165 kwh this month - compare that with last month - that is the actual electric usage - the price can change depending on the fee/tax in place each month.  The usage will also change not only by how much you run but also by the temperature and how hard your electric appliances have to work.  Normally will be highest during the hottest months of the year if everything else stays the same.  Remember that refrigerator is just like an air conditioner and has to work (use more electric) harder when hot and when you open/close door often.

The usage part I understand but what I can't fathom is when we have no supply for up to 5 days and our usage habits don't change but our bill increases.All I can think is that when the power comes back on the fridge runs like a cheetah on cocaine to get cold again thus increasing our usage.So not only do we have the hassle of no power but when it comes back on they make more money from us. :wheel:
