Just in Ratchaburi I know of 2 large solar farms and there may be more of them.

There's one between Amnat and Ubon.

So I will be saving 6 satang per unit.

 

On my 2000B bill, that will be about 20B.

 

If this is costing them 10,000,000,000B, we need 500 million household bills of 2000B/month to make the books balance on residential bills. Given the average bill is more likely 500B, and there are about 20 million households, this would take nearly 10 years to balance.

 

My point is, this is only going to make a noticeable difference to the Centrals and Big Cs of the world. And still it would be better spent on infrastructure.

in a land of sun, sea & s....   so little investment in solar power, which is good for many hours of strong sun, but ignored as not profitable...

If the UK with its meagre amount of sunshine can make solar power viable, why can't Thailand?  (I suspect because the monopoly has not been set up yet.)

more reason to cry when the surviving newspapers reprint bullshit received from official sources without bothering to do a spellcheck or fact check or comprehension check of any kind.

Indeed a big mess.

 

So the fact: unit price goes down 0.0522 Baht.

That's a whopping 1.3% approx. (4 Baht/unit assumed as avarage).

For our monthly bill ~ 25 Baht.

So I can buy two more packs of chewing gum.

Yippee!

I had a look at it a few years ago and from memory it appeared quite expensive to set up and would take a long time to recoup the investment plus there was some problem about selling surplus back to the PEA.

Considering we don’t need any heating and for part of the year don’t heat the water for showering it’s not as attractive as in other countries unless you could use it to run the air con.

I seem to recall that in Australia in some States the installation was subsidized by the government and there was some buy back of surplus power generation.

I did read a article that the whole thing became uneconomical due to the subsidies but cant remember the details.

If anyone has any current information for cost installation etc would be interested.

So if electricity is going to be cheaper, then we can/should use more! Hurray! Open all the windows and crank up the air con!

The money would be better spent on improving the system,

so the electrictricity does not go off,when it rains,even when 

it looks like rain,or when a mouse farts in the garden,it really

needs fixing.

regards worgeordie

Ours goes off regularly , every time it does we ring the department. The first words are ... Is it raining,windy or thunder .I tell my wife to tell them the mouse farted .It is a joke , especially when theY can spend so much on bloody submarines and a plane for out deputy leader.
