Because my wife just told me that ours is around 300 baht

No. but it's a 30 amp meter.   Never heard of anyone paying 300bt.  A few thousand is normal.

Is this the deposit for the meter? Are they going to refund it? If so, i need ot inform my GF to get her deposit back for the house she bought three weeks ago and the condo she bought 15-years ago.

The original deposit is for the hookup service which includes deposit for the meter itself.  The average cost (according to the story above..) is about 1,500 Baht ("23 million users who are eligible to recoup their deposits  -   more than Bt33 billion will be returned".

 

Ours ranged from 3200 to 12,000 Baht - we were told the amount of the deposit depends on the distance from the main to the meter and the capacity of the meter itself (2 or 3 phase/5, 10, 15 amp or more).

Better than nothing every little helps. We are providing some emergency financial assistance to some distressed family members.

This is a very solid idea. Something that seems to be in short supply at the moment.

Anybody with Golden armour is considered "special" even outside the troubled times we are living in 🙂
