฿2000 electricity refund?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

My wife owns a couple of properties in Thailand, including a house near Udon. We are stuck in UK right now and her sister is looking after the house in Udon.  Sister claims that there is an online form somewhere that my wife can complete to claim a ฿2000 bill refund payment from the Provincial Electricity Authority (note - this is not the meter deposit refund).

I have not been able to find such a form. Is there such a scheme?

She has received bills of around ฿500/month since New Year. No free electricity.

I had about 200 units deducted of my May bill. Saved me 900 Baht.

Btw. They also gave a 3% discount.

Which is what CharlieH was alluding to in the post above yours.......

Been more than a couple of threads on this.

Well, went to pay my electric bill for two months (last month I tried to pay by an APP but it was the wrong APP). Anyway, last month my bill was 3599 baht ... it was reduced to 2504 baht. The current bill was 3924 baht ... reduced to 2612 baht. A savings of 2407 baht = about $75.22 USD. Yes that makes a difference felt on my monthly budget.

Bill this month is what it is but capped at February's bill; anything over February's reading is reduced (deducted) in units from May's bill to bring it to Febs level, if it is more, which it was.

 

We applied for the other refund online. I didn't do it as it was in Thai. I  got someone else to do it. They paid us just over 5k.

 

Pretty generous really.

My bill for this month was THB 1293.93 (341 units) which was totally discounted. So a freebie and I believe it will be the same for the next 2 months. Thank you PEA.

There is the deposit return which varies by the size of your meter.

There is also a discount being taken off of bills right now but it is only for the 5w meters.  I don't get it because I have a 15W meter.

It will be listed on your bill.

There is a 3% discount for everyone and for others with the 15 amp meter there is another discount if usage above that in February.  So most people are getting something even if they may have to wait a bit and have deducted from next bill.
