Price For Power ?

90 posts in this topic

Well I just got my power bill from new landlord and Holy Sh-t ! 2600.00 bht for 1 month. Use the s/c only when sleeping and no kitchen just room w/ bath. Nothing fancy.

Just want to know how badly I'm getting screwed.

Will be moving asap.

Thanks

I thought the "price for power" in Thailand was 200 baht to everyone in Issan to vote for you on election day. smile.pngsmile.png

Seriously, that's a high bill. Doesn't sound right to me for the premises you describe.

Did you write down the meter reading and how much is the landlord charging you per unit?

@the OP

Best you tell us how much you are being charged per Kw unit. Hard to say whether 2,600 baht charge is excessive, could be you are running the air con in the heat of the day ?

We have 3 apartments we rent out, and charge 6 baht pr. kWh. Each apartment have 2 aircons, but untill now I don't think I have had to ask for more than about 1500 baht a month for electricity, to someone that run the aircon very often.

aren't aircons usually 1000W or more? hottest month of the year it can easily use 1 unit per hour (1000 watts for 1 hour or 1kWh)

one aircon 10 hours per day for 30 days at 4baht/unit(government rate) is 1200 baht already

I got my bill today. I used 523 KWH. I have two refrigerators, only one air conditioner in my bedroom, water pump, TVs, computers, hot water, ceiling fans, microwave, rice cookers, toaster, etc. My total was less than yours including VAT. If I just divide my total bill by my usage including VAT, I pay about 4.4 Baht per unit. I'd say you're paying a bit too much, but I don't know what your rental agreement is. I doubt you can do much, other than look for a better place. Good time of the year to move...

Was really looking for government rate price per unit, we are getting charged 8 bht per unit but landlord say rate is 8 bht for everyone here in phuket. Just want price rate here in Rawai.

Yes we are moving out, but still want to prove to them that They are Wrong......

Money Money what make Phuket worse every year.

Last time I checked, I was paying around THB 3.6 / unit (i.e. kWh). This is directly from the PEA. I have heard renters being charged 5 or 6 baht, but never 8. Rip off.

Does that include the extra indexed charge ? My extra charge has increased dramatically these past 2 months. Plus we pay business rates to PEA. I wish we only payed 3.91 baht.
