For the last year...

First 10 months, within 50 pesos of 1.800 pesos.

Month 11, April,  2,450 pesos.

Month 12, May, 3,000 pesos.

That's over 65% increase in 2 months.

 

FOR THE SAME AMOUNT OF USE????????

We run a 1.5hp split inverter aircon 24 hours a day every day of every month.  In addition to a 220 litre ref (also inverter), big ass lcd tv, electric oven etc and our bills have stayed remarkably co

Sorry I failed to explain properly. Usually the outside temperature here in Cebu is around 32 degrees. If you set the aircon to 26 degrees it is a comfortable temperature inside as the difference betw

Is it really the same usage?  Should be much more this time of the year.  What is the number of units used on each bill - that is the actual usage.

 

Expect your bills will have explanation of various charges?  At least here in Thailand they do.

Yea I had a thread on this a couple weeks ago. Drastically reduced our usage but the meter says we used the same. Everyone else we know had a massive increase in use with no change or less appliances. Still scratching our heads.

Just had a final reading done on my property. Got the shock of my life.

It appears the meter had not been read for over 3 years, all the bills were estimates :(

BTW, the was in OZ, but maybe thats whats happened.

 

The upside of my bill was there is legislation in force here that limits the utility companies to backdating 9 months only :yahoo:

Go in and ask them, probably get a better explanation than asking us.

Our electricity bills had alway been high, so we weren't particularly surprised when it was even higher for a couple of months. However, we decided to mention it and even had a BIL call a couple of times to ask if someone would check out the meter. They came out, decided we had an older meter as well as a bad installation to the pole. The combination lead to higher readings. They replaced the meter and the lead to the power, no cost to us.

 

The older wires and connection they gave to us and we could see burning where the bad connection was made.

My bill is continually high, after the storm the wires and meter were replaced, thats good...the other night, we killed power for a couple of hours and watched the meter...nobody stealing power...I can only assume its the power we are using in this house...the house might be part of it as it was built in 76 or so and a lot of the wiring is old..(had fuse wire for breakers when I moved in) 

Ive lived here for two years now and would move but seems to be a waste of money as the next time I want it to be in our own house...(underway)

The bills here have run anywhere between 12k and 19k since January...more since the heat wave...guess you gota live with it

Had a look at my statements for past 12 months, here in Talisay  Cebu.  No much change, appears to be averaging between 10.8 to 11.8 pesos per kwh. 

 

Peso / Oz dollar exchange rate rather than VECO   has made it more expensive now than this time last year.   :twocents:
