    That sounds about right. In Siquijor it is somewhat higher, about P12 per KwH last July when I checked with Prosielco. FYI, the “average” cost in the USA is 12 cents per KWH. So P10 Dumaguete would normalize to 20 cents US. Siquijor normalizes to close to 25 cents. Not cheap at all for the native people here, paying double the rates in the USA and earning just a small fraction of US wages. Europe of course varies a lot but I see the figure 18 cents used there, about the same as Manila’s P9 per KwH.
