Current Cost Of A Unit Of Electricity

51 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the current Bangkok price of a unit of electricity?

My apartment manager claims that the 5 baht per unit price that I am charged for electricity is the actual cost from the Utility Company. I don’t believe him.

Is it simply a matter of getting someone’s bill direct from the Utility Company and doing the math?

Aloha

There are various charges depending on the amount of electric used as well as monthly adjustments plus all have VAT added. My home charge is about 3.57 baht per unit total for bill of six thousand or so at private home using 15 amp meter service. Apartments may be subject to higher rates as large users but not sure of that, or how much.

Last month I paid Bht 2.5535 per unit (436 units consumed) plus Bht 0.4328 fuel tax plus 7% VAT. Total per unit = Bht 3.1953.

Private house, 35/100 Amp supply.

Electricity cost formula:

First 150 units @ 1.8047 baht = 270.705

Next 250 units @ 2.7781 baht = 694.525

Next xxx units @ 2.9780 baht = ???.???

+ standing charge...................... 40.9 baht

+ FT (fuel tax?) =.....total units*0.4328 baht

Everything charged at 7% VAT

e.g. 530 units: 1736.24 baht

Thanks for that RDN. I've been trying to figure out the formula (unsuccessfully) for years!

Thank you for the above formula.

Looks like the fuel tax is now increased.. I see on my bill it is now: total units * 0.92547 baht (232 units and Charged Fuel Tax 214.71)

Other things are exactly as above.

For 232 units usage... I am charged THB806.91.

Can someone confirm this or provide the updated version of this.

Also, Can someone tell me what the units mean? Is it KwHr or something similar? If not how to find the KwHr?

Any explanation.

That seems very expensive, up in CM on a large 2 bedroom house I pay

Standing charge 260bht

Per unit 0.9255

then tax on the lot of 7% and 10bht for the 7-11 when I pay each month

(this month 416bht)

seems like a good deal to me.

Chiangmai also:

530 units > 1393.27 = 2.63 Baht/unit

.9255 x 530 Fuel Tax > 490.52

Tax (7%) > 131.87

------------------------------

Total 2015.66 = 3.8 baht/unit accumulative.

I get a lil les then double your units for the same price but i live in a town house. So it looks like your overcharged but it happens a lot.

I rent a room in pattaya and they charge us B7/kWh. About 100% profit for the owners :)

Off topic, but I think that landlords who view electricity billing as a profit center also view security deposits as a source of profit. The higher the per unit cost in an apartment the more likely they will have a mandatory cleaning charge at moveout and an inflated price list for "damages"!

Apartments owners charge the extra money for the common area lighting and lifts if you have one and any any other misc electrical usage. An extra that seems like a lot but someone has to pay for those lights.

Many condo electric rates are in the 6 to 7 baht range also and this is agreed to by those running the condo association. There are costs involved with common area electrics also.
