Pleasant Surprise when I Received the Electric Bill

Recommended Posts

Just received my electric bill for the month in my Pratumnak Condo.

281 units used for the month.

I was expecting a bill for approx. 1,200 baht (4.5 Baht per unit)

Total bill = 182.72 Baht!

Thanks Thailand.

Total bill sounds like the discount is 182.72 Baht, or as Steve100 said above, it's an error, sorry to be the one to deliver the bad news, ours went down about 400 baht, but there is 6 of us here and our bill was 1145.00 Baht.

As I remember reading, the government announced a discount for people to help reduce the larger bills with being at home most of the time. They also stated the initial 9 units of water would be free but this must have been for houses because mine was the normal amount.

Sorry, I tried to find the announcement but couldn't find it but I did read it somewhere.

Yes not sure 4MyEgo but here is a copy and I did indeed only pay 182 Baht.

I used a 100 more units and the bill amount .was the same as may bill to the bhat. Sit looks like I could have used more aircon and the bill would have been the same... Yeah not sure if next month will be the same.. So should I use more or not? Lol

Did you get a discount on your last bill? If you did not then they gave you the discount which should have been given last month.

I did check my last bill. 251 units used and bill was 957 Baht. I couldn't see any discount and the rate is usually around 4.4 to 4.5 Baht per unit. So you could be correct ripstanley?

I'm bewildered. My condo is populated by Thais and farangs with reasonable resources. My electricity bill for May was zero. Invoice said FREE.

My GF's house in a Thai rural village surrounded by rice farms had a bill of 520 baht for May. I would have thought they needed it more than I do. The house actually uses less aircon than I do.

I don't have a clue what they are up to, our bill ( we didn't get one ) this month, was we had to go to the office where they said the bill this month is the same as last month if usage is higher, which as it turns out it is, so the bill which was 1176 was reduced to 1141 , the same as last month, which was initially 1683 before the discount.

You take the previous bill and they tack on the new bill, which is of course incomprehensible because the print quality is worse than an old ATM receipt, and it is in Thai.

 

God knows why but the clerk was wearing one of the toy soldier uniforms and was a complete ar*ehole.

I read somewhere that for 1-2 months they will apply the calculation based on the consumption of February. 

I wonder if thats the reason. You will see from the copy of my bill, Feb usage was only 44 units. The place was empty then as I only moved in in April?
