What is your current electric rate, where you live?

Recommended Posts

Mikala

I had a customer in the past that had incredibly high electric bills. Turned out she had a short to ground that was causing her meter to rack up the kW-hours on her meter. She asked for a refund, but it was rejected since the wiring that caused the problem was inside her house, which is completely the customer's responsibility.

 

Maybe check by turning off EVERYTHING. Unplug all electronics and such. Then see if the meter wheel is still rotating...

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:

 

Indeed that will require the mouse to make many more transits of the power wheel to get the temperature back down to the required level (should be about -19 for a freezer and 3 for refrigerator section) - but even with a few days of no usage if normal usage it higher because of weather the bill could be as much or more.

For what its worth.

I just received my utilities bill here in Singapore

 

They are read electronically somehow and is received by email the next day.

This is for 74 days (Not sure why 74, just because it is :)  )

 

The exchange rate today was  1 SGD = 35.89 peso

That makes it about 8.98 peso a kWh.

 

The usage is low because I don't spend much time here now, hence the packing 

You will also note that the water, gas and garbage are all on the one bill which is a great idea

Anyway I just thought I would throw it into the mix as a comparison.

While I was at it I looked up the electricity for my property in Oz

 

The exchange rate today was 1 AUD = 40.73 peso

That makes this bill about 10.63 peso a kWh

 

I know the topic was mainly referring to the Philippines, but I hope this puts some balance into the topic.

No it isn't. Anyone, anywhere around the world can post their current rates in this thread.

In view of all these high power bills, where can we buy in Cebu energy-efficient air conditioners?

Latest bill just came in , Ergon energy ( Qld ) $349.43 AUD for 96 days , average daily use 11.3 kWh , average daily cost $3.44 .or 142 PHP . 

 

The energy use is actually split between 2 rates , tariff 33 ( off peak ) is 18.052 cents / kWh and tariff 11 residential is 26.730 cents / kWh.  Off peak comprises approx 20% of the bill . 

 

The total of $349.43 also includes a "service fee" of $53.03 , this is basically an infrastructure charge. 

 

Fred  above , maybe that 2000 peso charge was for something like a service fee ? How long was that for ?

It's just the price we pay for our comfort here in the Philippines 24/7! You should see our weekly/monthly grocery bill! 

Our friends/neighbor's budget are even higher than ours, because they are not your average typical Filipino family in an upscale neighborhood like ours!

We just had our electric meter read by the TIELCO rep and this month we consumed 26 KW more than last month.There have been no changes in our usage and no extra appliences used.This is during a month that we had no power for a full 5 days due to the suppliers not having diesel to run the plant and as many days on load shedding.I just can't understand how this is happening.I've asked the town electrician to come and have a look for leaks.This is my inlaws house with 30 yr old wiring.I hope the problem is with the supplier so I can ask for some refunds.Ha Ha :sarcasm:
