The water pumps will have to keep pressure on the water, regardless of actual consumption.

At our complex the water tanks are on top of The Roof.

On my latest PEA (Pattaya Electricity Authority) bill I paid 4.16 baht per unit, VAT included.

I paid a little less than 4 last month, 226 units for a total cost of 867.15.  Up until this year I thought the "P" in PEA  meant Pattaya until I saw it in Korat.  I took a closer look at my bill and its Provincial.

Sorry, not Pattaya Electricity Authority, but Provincial Electricity Authority.

That’s possible as there’s a small exemption, which makes the tariff slightly progressive.

I bedroom unit, 2 aircon units, old, and probably not efficient.

spent 6 months there. From memory it was circa 4baht a unit of electricity.

I used aircon from about 6pm in the living room for a couple of hours, f4om when I had to shut the balcony doors due to mosses until i went out, then swapped to the bedroom unit when i returned about midnight through to about 9am when I got up. Both were set to about 27°

My bill was anything from 900 to 1200b a month.

Was charged 7baht per unit in Centara.  Avg electric bill for studio was around 3500 baht.  In previous years when I stayed at Avenue residence or City garden paid 1/2 of what I paid in Centara this year.

I stayed at a "1 bedroom" 29 sqm condo at the Base. At 7B per unit, I paid about 2000 baht for electricity for the month. I left the AC on at night. During the day, I was usually out (with AC off) or I left the AC off half the time when I was there.

for those who have their own condo it will pay to change light bulbs to LED. same brightness but lower power consumption. i changed mine in mid feb and since then the  units i've used /month is down on average by 38. not a huge amount but it's every month

The thing is that many landlords in Thailand offer contracts with low monthly rents but then charge 7 or more baht for electricity per kwh (so they earn from electricity). Hence your rent will be much higher, the landlord makes 2000 baht extra from electricity if you run the aircon a lot. Hence you need to check the contract and also check the meter because some also like to cheat when billing the electricity.

Pretty sure that I’ve charged less than that in VT2, VT5 & Jomtien Complex.

I always stay in Jomtien. You said ‘tourist areas’ which it is :D Hardly ‘way out’ either.

The landlords I know and have spoken with have a simple way around this. They are raising the rental prices

So if you have 1 condo you are renting out it does not apply to you ? Is that correct ?

1 water Unit = 1 m3  (cubic meter, 1'000 litres)

1 electric Unit = 1 kWh  (1 kW during 1 hour)

Easy :wink:

Sadly apparently only illegal for renters with at least 5 apartments to rent...

Nearly all apartments in Center Condo, Pattaya City Garden and many condo units in Soi 15.

yes you most probably rented from a agency or from the juristic office

Or the owner told you the price .and just showed you the meter reading i guess.on arrival and departure.

it is not hard to follow you can get charged whatever the owner or agency sets up to 10 baht is not  uncommon.you can read the tread again if necessary.

If your not an owner as in center condo does they rent out for owners and price accordingly.

But if you rent direct from the owner the whole monthly bill should  be yours to to pay at 7/11 this will be government rate.

Yes unlike renting in your home or my home country the bill stays in the owner name for long term rentals.

Your just  paying  the bill for him. 

The avenue don't work as a sales office like center condo with daily/weekly and monthly rates short term .

Yes he  is saving you a trip to 7/11 or bank  and 15 baht fee to pay a bill with cash. He may even have direct debit account 

Above i meant to say city garden  for bill through the sales office.

centara residence charge 5 baht as no chanotes so no official bill yet and just read the meters themselves that have only been recently installed until then it was free.

I probably should have mentioned I am only on a short term (1 month) stay. You are pretty much at the mercy of the owner.

Another option without having to pay the 15 baht fee is going to one of the PEA payment offices, I've used the ones located at the Royal Garden and Big C Extra complexes.
