Power rates for October
(Feed generated with FetchRSS)
That's a big increase, Oh yeah Christmas is coming.
Could it be that more power is being used due to people staying home more? I know very little about power production or how the price changes with increased demand. I would think the extra demand may result in higher maintenance costs.
But greater income - only problem is if excess demands cause bigger problems not covered by that additional income. Or as @jimeve says "It's Christmas"!
In a free market there will be fluctuations. The utilities enter long term contracts for the base load and then fill the remainder of what they need with short term and on the spot bidding.
Fuel cost fluctuations, mostly coal here in the Philippines, are passed on to the utility. If one power plant shuts down for maintenance or repair then the excess power required from the other plants is more expensive. Older contracts expire and newer contracts are more expensive. (Labor increases, etc.)
On going brown out since 1pm today.
Bamboo breaking the power line.
Sacsac bacong. Where are the repair boys?
Minutes after posting this the power came back on. I can eat my dinner in without candles.
You like wax with your food? You really have become Filipino.
You're welcome to have my wax from my ears.
