In my original thread, I posted the costs for connecting electricity for new clients out near Chan's Farm. Typical SE Asian pricing, for sure. But, that's how it goes.
Anyway, after looking at the costs for the various packages, it didn't take long to figure out it would be cheaper for me to pay for multiple 20 amp services, rather than a single 63 amp service. Besides, I can have them do the work for me, running power to specific points at the farm, so I don't have to. They get multiple service accounts and I get electric service where I want / need it.
Let me explain.
To secure a single 63 amp service at the farm, it would cost $521.56.
To secure a single 20 amp service at the farm, it would cost $96.50.
For the cost of 1 single 63 amp service, you could pay for 5 - 20 amp services to be connected, or 100 amps service, total.
See what I mean about "typical SE Asian pricing"? Doesn't make sense, does it?
So, for now, we have connected a single 20 amp service at the farm. I will have them connect another 20 amp service, at the time I get at least one more outbuilding constructed. Later, I will have another 20 amp service connected to a barn. Easier to keep track of power usage that way, as well as being cheaper for me.
