Now i can relax and another worry gone out of the window. Electric bill. Last month, our bill was high and it gave me worries. Less than 4000 pesos, or around $90. Now...less than.$50. Whew! My bro gives.his share.but the money will be given after the.deadline, so what happen, always happens is, ihave to pay it first to avoid penalty and have the share after. Now...i can relax a bit.with the bill. Haha Do you have the same worries like me?

A friend said he bought a Max Power Efficiency Device and it greatly reduced his bill (40% down I guess). It's sold at Handyman.

I am not worried with our electric and water bill. What I am worried about is our house rental. But not much worried because My children shoulders the rent. I just add if there is an amount lacking.

Fortunately, we don't have those worries, but I'm happy you can relax now. We put on a large addition several years ago during the summer. We ran the air conditioner since it was so hot. With half the house opened up, out bill was close to $700!!!! Now if it's under $500, we are happy.

Yes, and I had been waiting for the meter reader who did not show up since yesterday, the date they read the meters for the consumption for half of past month and half of this month's consumption.I think it gets bigger this time.

There are also times when the meter reader does not visit our house and my brother said, they just make an approximate Kw usage based on our average consumption for the past months. I am not sure if this is true and if it is also practiced there.

@Lucky15 Oh i see . Well, it's unavoidable not to use AC the whole day on summer specially that the kids are on vacation . But since they are always in school now , you can choose to just use the electric fan during day time so that would indeed bring down the electric consumption.

wow! that's a lot of money for electricity ..But it's good that everyone shares the burden .. I paid 1,500 pesos for a month electricity in my retreat oven in Sorsogon.. We don't have television or air conditioning over there , but electric fans are on always on .. I am just wondering what would make your electricity to go up to 4000 pesos? ..

I try to only worry about what I can control. We are behind in our electric bill as well, but get by with what we can. Do they have some kind of payment plan you can sign up for?

@Lucky15 The electric bill increased for us from last month to this month. I think because we've been using the fan a lot more.
