What is your current electric rate, where you live?

Is it a way for them to ensure no loss from what they send out? So they charge for everything that leaves ..

Even if some of it is unmetered , how do street lights and traffic lights get metered etc, etc......

Just got our bill for the past 90 days: Consumption was 4367KW (48.53 per day) and a total cost of Au$761.78 including fees and GST. That works out to be Au$0.1744 cents per Kilowatt.  Pretty cheap fo

We pay about P12 PKWH. It is so low due to the 192 MW geothermal power plant just up the hill.    

Paul, Is it possible to prevent this thread from being locked in the future so we can update our information if it changes? Especially here in the RP where it seems that the rates are about to increas

Take a look at the picture below

Veco has done a lot to prevent stealing electricity 

with the meters high on masts it is only possible to steal from each other

At Hawaii Electric, we had an agreement with the state, county and city to charge a set amount per month for each street light or traffic light that was hooked up. Every now and then, we'd revisit the calculated amount to increase it as costs went up.

Of course we, the utility, knew about each street light and such, because we'd be contacted to connect it.

I pay 7.4 cents a kWH or 3.9 Pesos.  Pretty darn cheap it sounds like.

CEBECO II - Tuburan, May 2017

 - total bill 4,517 peso for 387.0 kwh (it was a hot month here, aircon was on a bit, normal bill is about 1800 to 2000 peso)

 -  that's 11.67 peso/kwh overall

On the bill the "generation Charge" is only 6.2886 peso/kwh, but then the long list of about 14 adders gets added. The biggest one is "Transmission Charge" at 1.52 peso/kwh.  And various VAT add to about 0% of the bill.

Got an email from my son who lives in South Australia regards their new power charges.. July1 prices for power: 41.80c /Kw and a daily supply fee of 91.30c 

SA is the lefty state here in Oz that applied the lefty's green power bullshit thinking.. They have since had long state wide power outages and now trying to fix up their mess by sending their power rates through the roof! Someone forgot to tell these feckwits that: If the sun don't shine and the wind don't blow, when ya hit the switch, nothing will glow!

So if you want to feel warm and fuzzy cos you've saved the world, go to SA, just remember to bring some candles!

Over the past both sides of Oz politics paid large subsidies and ridiculous feed back tariffs for renewable installations (Up to 40c / kw when coal power was costing less than 5c!) Now that the systems are fecked and power prices have been forced to more than double by this stupidity, the greens are now saying 'see renewables are competitive' WTF are we all this bloody stupid?

Even here in Victoria (run by another mob of lefty wankers) they increased one of the coal power station's fees by 300% making it nonviable Can you believe it!  Now that station was recently shut down so we too will have power supply problems. And this is the state that built a $3.5 Billion desalination plant that is in mothballs! This and the building of five other desal plants here in Oz was because our stupid politicians (both sides) listened to the loonies like the heads of the 'Climate Change commission' who promoted the idea that the country would dry up because "rain will evaporate before it hits the ground"  "Perth will be a ghost town and Brisbane will also run out of water"  WTF 

And you Yanks thought you had all the dumb arsed politicians over there, well sorry guys but we have more than our share too. :rolleyes:

P8.96 KWH. All lines have resistance, that is where line loss charges come in.

P9.8KWH at Winland Tower if billed by admin or choice to go directly with VECO but I believe at much higher rate.

The rate in this part of the country (Cambodia) dropped, causing tenants to demand that landlords follow suit. Now, many apartment building owners are down to 1,100r (.275¢) / kWh. Even though residential rates are 800r (.20¢) / kWh.

I know this sounds like bollox... but, following the recent Leyte quakes, we got our power back on yesterday and the lights seem brighter, the fridge and air-con seem colder and when I charged the "re-chargeables" they seemed to charge faster and brighter!

Is the electricity we're getting from Cebu (or wherever it is coming from on the NGCP) different to the usual stuff we get from Tacloban?
