Cambodia Electricity Prices VS Other Countries.

How does Cambodia Electricity per KW differ from other countries. I've been looking at rentals on Khmer24 and one lists .25 per KW. Is that cheap?

How much is that in US $?

almost correct it's is depend on area where you rent but that prices is not cheap can accept. because you are not own landlines

This is US Rates by provider http://www.mdelectricity.org/bge-electricity-rates/

Khmers pay to the state 820 Riel/kW, foreign house owners 1000 Riel.

Some house owners want to have some profit from this and charge up to 1500 Riel/kW.
In some cases a little extra is correct when the house owner pays for electricity on the general premises, like night lights, electrical pumps and so on.

Btw 820 Riel is $0.20, 1000 Riel is $0.25.

That's higher than here I'm from in the states.

Well I can tell you that electricity in Cambodia is 18% of the price for the same amount in South Africa

"That's higher than here I'm from in the states"

Realize you don't use as much as in the US, I read the average household in the US uses 900 kW per month!!! If I compare to myself, a house with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, aircon, I use about 65 kW per month, resulting in a very low $15 a month.

You don't have to heat during winter, if you use fans instead of aircon most of the time, if you cook on gas, you will have a low electricity bill.

Some people I know leave their aircons on for 24/7, that results in a high bill but also shows they are total energy wasters.

Or they just cannot sleep without A/C...

Even if that's the case, you can switch it off when you are not at home or not in the room.....

Sure, that is what I do but the A/C's still suck the most with three A/C's in the house.

Yes, but imagine the power it would take when all 3 are on 24 hours per day.....
